Contactless payments allow consumers to purchase goods or services without physically swiping or inserting a card. Contactless payment methods are also sometimes referred to as “tap-and-go” and “tap-to-pay.” These types of payments are typically used in grocery stores, restaurants, and transit. With the current pandemic, many consumers have chosen contactless payment options because you can be socially distant. There is no need to touch a surface to complete a transaction.
