How non-contact payment works

  1. First you have to determine if a retailer is equipped with payWave compatible equipment. Non-contact payment can take place at all domestic and international retailers who display a symbol for non-contact payment cards:payWave
  2. A card with payWave technology must be placed close to the sensor, which is marked with a non-contact payment symbol.
  3. Information on the card is read after an acoustic signal sounds, and some sensors indicate that payment has been approved.
  4. The retailer will then provide you with a receipt.
