Recently, there has been a lot of talk about various technologies that simplify electronic payments, reducing the need for cash-related transactions. These technologies are welcome opportunities for many. One service, which has gradually grown in popularity and has become more widely used is contactless technology, also known as Tap & Go.
Tap & Go, currently provided by Visa and Mastercard, allows you to make instant, fast and secure payments by effortlessly tapping your card on a contactless-enabled point of sale device, saving you the hassle of inputting your PIN on POS systems.
You’ll find the contactless symbolone on POS devices that support this service.
Several banks in Egypt offer Tap & Go; if you have a bank account in any of them, then you’re good to go.
Look for a wave-like icon on the front or the back of your card. That’s the contactless symbol. You’ll find the same one on POS devices that support this service. That’s it, just Tap & Go! If the symbol is not there, do not worry, that just means you’ll have to wait to renew your card, your new card should have it, and you’ll be all set.
