Best contactless credit cards: Tap to pay – thepointsguy.com Madison Blancaflor
Contactless credit cards are cards that don’t require you to insert your card chip when you make a purchase. These cards use EMV chip technology (chip security developed for Europay, Mastercard and Visa but now used by many cards) with NFC (near-field communication) for proximity payments. Cards with contactless capabilities can be used like a standard chip credit card or for “tap-and-go” payments similar to Apple Pay and Google Pay purchases.
Apple Pay is easy and works with the Apple devices you use every day.
Google Pay is a fast, simple way to pay contactless.
When you pay with your Android phone or Apple iPhone, Google Pay uses an encrypted number instead of your actual card number so your details stay secure. With contactless payments, you can check out faster with the device that's already in your hand.
