Personal Credit Cards

Is a chip (EMV) credit card the same as contactless payment?

Category: Personal   Service: Credit Cards | Updated: October 1st, 2015

Answer:

No. Contactless cards employ near-field communication technology (NFC), which has a radio antenna that transmits account information, and work by waving or tapping your card in front of a device. Chip cards must be inserted face-up into a chip-enabled merchant terminal that allows the chip to make contact with the reader to authorize and complete a transaction.
