Contactless Payments

A fast, secure way to pay.


What are contactless payments?

Contactless payments let you pay by simply tapping your card or device on a payment reader. Cards, phones, watches, and other devices use the same contactless technology. When you tap to pay, checkout is secure and convenient. 

Our new Guadalupe Credit Union Visa Debit/Credit Cards have contactless payments built-in to help limit contact with physical buttons, and speed up your transactions while increasing security.

Understanding the Security of Contactless Payments

Worried about the safety of contactless payments? Let's put those concerns to rest! Our contactless cards are equipped with advanced security features to keep your information safe. Each time you tap to pay, a unique code is generated for that transaction only, making it extremely difficult for fraudsters to copy your information. Plus, your card never leaves your hand. This means the risk of card loss or theft is significantly reduced. Enjoy the convenience without compromising on security!

Frequently asked questions:

What is a contactless payment? Contactless payments are made by tapping either a payment-enabled mobile or wearable device or a contactless chip card over a contactless-enabled payment terminal. The same contactless technology is used by cards, phones, watches and other devices.

Are contactless cards safe? Yes, your contactless card uses the latest chip security to ensure it is as safe as inserting a chip card.

How do I use my contactless card to make purchases? When you are ready to pay, hold your card within 1-2 inches of a contactless-enabled terminal. Once you hear a “beep”, see a checkmark or a green light, you can remove your card. Depending on the merchant, you may be asked to enter your PIN or sign for approval.

How do I know if a merchant accepts contactless payments? When you are ready to pay, look for the contactless symbol at the payment terminal.

Where can I use my new contactless card? Anywhere that accepts debit or credit cards. If a register isn't contactless enabled, you can still swipe or insert your card. Contactless technology is supported by thousands of merchants, including McDonald's, Starbucks, Subway, Trader Joe's, Walgreen's and many more.
