Just Tap & Go

Make everyday purchases quickly and safely with just a tap of your contactless-enabled MasterCard® or device

Wherever you see the universal contactless symbol, use your contactless-enabled MasterCard or device and checkout will be easier than ever. It's even faster than fumbling with cash.


Contactless is accepted globally at all kinds of merchants including retail stores, fast-food restaurants, pharmacies, grocery and convenience stores and at transit locations. You’ll even find contactless in taxis and vending machines.

Contactless payments are safe

Encryption — unique to every purchase — protects your transaction data, and your card or device never leaves your hand, reducing the risk of loss or counterfeit. What’s more, safeguards are in place to bill you only once if you accidently tap twice.
