Contactless is accepted globally at retail stores, fast-food restaurants, pharmacies, transit points of entry and grocery and convenience stores. You’ll even find contactless in taxicabs and vending machines.
Encryption — unique to every purchase — protects transaction data, and the card or device never leaves the consumer's hand, reducing the risk of loss or counterfeit. What’s more, safeguards are in place to bill consumers only once if they accidentally tap twice. A contactless-enabled credit, debit or prepaid Mastercard card or device is one of the most secure ways to pay.
