Contactless payment: the easy and fast alternative to cash
For American Express Business and Mastercard Cardmembers
What does contactless payment mean?
Contactless payment is the practical alternative to cash. Paying for your everyday business charges and purchases becomes even faster and easier. Simply hold your contactless corporate credit card up to the payment terminal and your payment has already been made. Up to CHF 40* even without a PIN code or signature.
The card and terminal are connected by NFC (Near Field Communication) and complete the payment process without any direct contact.
* With amounts from CHF 40 and in individual cases you are asked for your PIN code or signature. Please see the instructions on the Display.
How it works:
The terminal display will guide you through the transaction on a step-by-step basis.
1. Watch out for the contactless Symbol.
2. Hold your corporate credit card against the contactless symbol.
3. Your payment will be confirmed on the display within a few seconds – finished!*
What are the advantages of contactless payments?
Contactless payment makes your daily purchases easier and liberates you from the tiresome search for small change.
Are contactless payments safe?
Your contactless corporate credit card is a safe method of payment.
During the entire payment process the card never leaves your hand and therefore you always have control over your spending. The amount is only paid with close contact with the terminal and for amounts from CHF 40 you still have to enter your PIN code as well.
Where can I make contactless payments?
Contactless payment can be used worldwide anywhere you see the contactless symbol. In Switzerland, the contactless acceptance points are widespread and new points of acceptance are being added constantly.
Look out for this symbol when shopping.
