Contactless Credit Cards by Chase

Chase Cardholders will soon be able to make payments without swiping or dipping because Chase is going contactless. The new cards will have contactless technology built directly into the card. This way when they are at a contactless technology enabled terminal cardholder’s can just tap and go, saving them a bit of time when checking out.

Reportedly later in 2018 people with the Chase Visa credit card, regardless of what kind of card it is, will begin getting their new contactless credit cards when their card nears its expiration date. That said, according to the website cardholders who want a card before their cards expiration date can call Chase and request one.

How does it work?

How can people tell if their card is contactless? On the back of the card is a symbol that looks a bit like a speaker. Cards with this symbol can be used at registers that offer contactless payment.

People may be wondering how contactless payment works at the register. It is a relatively easy process. Cardholders get their card out as usual, but instead of swiping or dipping their card, once the cashier indicates it’s time to pay the individual just taps their card at the terminal.

In order for the payment to go through they suggest that cardholders hold their card within one or two inches of the contactless symbol located on the terminal.

What about security? Chase points out on their website that contactless technology provides the same level of security as EMV or chip-based payment technology.

Being able to pay using a tap and go technology may well be helpful for people who are traveling because many countries abroad have fully integrated contactless payments into their systems.
