FAQ’s on the contactless payment feature

When making a contactless payment, you hold your card just a few centimetres away from a payment terminal that has the contactless feature enabled. You neither have to insert the card into the terminal, nor do you have to touch the terminal. Wireless technology (near-field communication/NFC) enables the relevant payment data to be transmitted in encrypted form.

Cards with the contactless function can be used worldwide at all locations where the relevant acceptance point infrastructure is in place. Nearly all payment terminals in Switzerland are already equipped with the contactless function.

If your card has the contactless symbol, you can use it for contactless payments immediately without the need for you to sign up for it.

"In Switzerland: You do not need to enter your PIN code for amounts under CHF 40. For amounts of CHF 40 or more, you will have to enter your PIN code or provide your signature. Please note what it says on the display.

Abroad: You do need to enter your PIN code for small amounts. The threshold varies from country to country. In the EU, for example, you do not need to enter your PIN code for amounts under EUR 25."

Can I also make contactless payments for amounts of CHF 40 or more? Yes, this is possible. However, the payment terminal will ask you to enter your PIN code for your own security.
