It’s everywhere

MasterCard® contactless is accepted in many countries and at all kinds of retailers, including restaurants, chemists, grocery and convenience stores. Increasingly you can use touch to pay for travel in taxis and on public transport – trains, buses and now you can use it on the London Underground!

It’s secure

MasterCard® contactless transactions are just as secure as using Chip and Pin. Your purchase data is protected and because your card or device never leaves your hand, the risk of cloning or theft is reduced. Your contactless credit, debit, or prepaid MasterCard® card or device is one of the most secure ways to pay.
