Payment security

Safe-T security services to help protect card data§

Safeguarding the payment experience through contactless payments

The ability to accept contactless payments should be an essential component of operating safely and minimizing the spread of germs. Contactless cards, smart phones and smartwatches are all convenient and quick ways to pay while avoiding contact at the point of sale.

So, what does this contactless adoption mean for your business? Ensure you’re ready to meet cardholder demand and give consumers the choice to safely pay their way. Much like EMV adoption in 2015, cardholders are getting on board with contactless payments in 2020. So, how do you ensure you are ready? Let’s look at three considerations:

1. Be sure your payment solution accepts NFC payments.

Whether it’s key fobs, smartphones or contactless/”tap and go” cards, Near Field Communication (NFC) technology enables you to future-proof your business with a long-term payment solution. Investing in a device that accepts these payments methods is not only smart, but economical in the long term. 

2. Accepting contactless payments is inherently more secure.

Contactless cards and mobile wallets can provide stronger security than traditional payment methods through tokenization technology. A token replaces a cardholder’s payment card numbers, rendering the information useless to hackers in the event of a breach. 

3. Offering contactless payment methods improves customer satisfaction.

Contactless payments increase the speed of the transaction and decrease the friction associated with the entire payment process. According to a recent U.S. Chamber Guide, “by offering contactless payments, your business will be viewed as more forward thinking. Your customers will be happier because they aren’t stuck waiting in slow-moving lines.”
