New limit for contactless payments with cards and smartphones
The limit for contactless payments without code with debit and credit cards has been raised from 25 to 50 euros. At the POS terminal, there is no need to enter a code for purchases up to 50 euros. For amounts over 50 euros, please enter your code as usual. This measure applies for the duration of the Corona crisis.
The existing security rule remains unchanged: As soon as your contactless payments without a code exceeds the total amount of 125 euros, you have to enter your code or insert the card. Please note the display on the terminal.
