The quickest and simplest way to let customers pay by card.

[us_separator size=”small” color=”primary”]

The evolution of contactless payments in the last few years, has reminded business owners the importance of meeting the expectations of customers wishing to pay using a contactless card as their preferred method of payment. As with all of our debit card machines, our contactless card machines allow you to take payments quickly and efficiently. Where you see the contactless ‘wave and pay‘ sign displayed and the customer has a compatible contactless credit or debit card they can make a contactless payment where the amount is £30 or less. Anything above the £30 limit will have to be by the traditional Chip and PIN method.

Contactless card payments are more convenient than other types of payment and eliminate queues which is pivotal if you’re in a busy retail setting. Wireless Terminal Solutions’ contactless card machines ensure it’s quicker and easier for your customers to pay. Our card processing terminals are designed to help significantly increase your sales and safeguard you against credit and debit card fraud.

FAQs About Contactless Card Machines

[us_separator size=”small” color=”primary”]
What is a Contactless payment?
Contactless payments are a fast alternative to the traditional Chip and PIN offering customers an easy and secure way to pay.
Is there a purchase limit for contactless purchases?
It currently stands at £30 or under.
My card machine is Contactless enabled, do all customers have to use it?
Contactless technology is an additional feature on customers’ cards. Not everyone has it, and it is entirely up to the customer’s discretion.
How do I know whether a customer’s card is Contactless enabled?
You will see a symbol on the card that can be described as having 4 small waves on it. If you see this, it means the card comes Contactless enabled.
How do Contactless card payments work?
The underlying technology for all of these devices is the same. The Contactless card terminal contains an antenna so that when it is touched against a contactless handset, it securely transmits purchase information.
Will I get a receipt for my Contactless transaction?
If you would like a receipt to confirm the contactless transaction, speak to the merchant when you pay.
How close does a customer’s card need to be to the reader?
We recommend that you touch the card to the reader, and take the card out of your purse or wallet before you use it.
Can I use a Contactless card to get cashback when making a purchase?
No, this is not possible. The customer will need to use their PIN for these transactions.
Is Contactless technology secure?
Yes it is. The Contactless technology uses secure encryption (the same as a Chip and PIN transaction). For added protection, from time to time, you may be asked to enter your PIN to verify you are the genuine card holder.
Could I unknowingly make a Contactless purchase as I walk past a Contactless handset?
No you can’t. The merchant must have entered the sale amount for you to approve first, and then your debit card has to be held within a few centimetres of the charge terminal for no longer than half a second.
Is there any chance that a Contactless payment could be taken twice from my account?
No. Contactless card readers are only able to make one transaction at any time. As a safeguard, each transaction must be complete or void before another can take place.
My current card machine isn’t Contactless enabled, How can I start accepting Contactless payments?
Please contact Wireless Terminal Solutions and we will be able to provide a Contactless card terminal.
