How do I make contactless payments?

Are contactless payments secure?

Making contactless payments is easy, practical and fast with UBS Credit Cards and Prepaid Cards. For small amounts, all you need to do is hold the card briefly against the card reader and your payment is made. For larger amounts, you will automatically be requested to enter your PIN for your security.

How secure is contactless payment? 

  • The card stays in your hand during the entire payment process.
  • Data can only be transferred from the card chip to the card reader when the card is held close to the reader.
  • Only one transaction is possible each time contact is made with the terminal, as the card’s security chip generates a unique code for each transaction. Multiple code utilization or incorrect codes are identified immediately.
  • For amounts over CHF 40, you also need to enter your PIN.
