The ins and outs of contactless payments

BEUC NEWS - 14.09.16

Want to know more about how contactless payments work? Wondering where you can use contactless? These questions and others are addressed in a new leaflet produced by retail and consumer organisations as well as payment service providers.

This technology first appeared at the end of the 1990s and took off in the UK in the 2000s. Since, contactless cards are spreading to other parts of Europe, often without consumers necessarily knowing how they work. The leaflet also contains advice about what to do if you suspect something has gone wrong.

The leaflet is available here.
