Frequently Asked Questions

 

A: Mastercard contactless is like having exact change wherever you go. A simple tap of your card, key fob or smartphone is all it takes to pay at checkout.

A: There are many benefits to contactless payments:

  • It's like having exact change wherever you go, so you don't have to worry about carrying around cash or fishing for coins.
  • You are in control because your contactless-enabled card or device never leaves your hand at checkout.
  • You get better record keeping of all your purchases than you do when using cash.
  • It's fast and ideal at places where speed is essential, like stadiums, fast food restaurants and gas stations.

A: Anywhere you see the contactless symbol at checkout  you can simply tap to pay. This includes fast food restaurants, gas stations, convenience stores, pharmacies, stadiums and more.

Find participating locations

If you don't see the symbol, your contactless-enabled card can still be used by inserting your chip card or swiping at checkout.

A: To make a purchase, simply tap your Mastercard contactless card, key fob or smartphone on the payment reader at the checkout of participating retail locations.

Find participating locations

A: Typically, when you tap your card or device at checkout, it must be within an inch or two of the contactless symbol on the terminal at the counter. If you have more than one contactless card in your wallet, you should remove the specific card you would like to use rather than tapping your wallet against the reader.

A: Contactless uses a hidden embedded computer chip and radio frequency antennae. After you tap your contactless card or device at checkout, payment details are sent wirelessly to the Mastercard network. If using a smartphone, moments after you tap you'll receive payment confirmation and be on your way.

A: Yes. Contactless payments provide secure encryption technology and Zero Liability protection* and are as safe as your regular card.

  • You are in control – your contactless-enabled card or device never leaves your hands to make a payment
  • No accidental payments – your contactless-enabled card or device must be close to the payment reader at checkout to work
  • Not billed twice – even if you tap more than once at checkout, you'll only get billed once for your purchase

More about security

A: If your question is not listed, we recommend that you contact the financial institution that issued your card as only they hold information specific to your account. Typically, there is a customer service number for your financial institution on the back of the card. You can always contact the Mastercard Assistance Center either toll free at 1-800-627-8372 or collect at 1-636-722-7111.
