What is paying by contactless?

You can pay quickly and securely for small purchases like a newspaper, coffee or train ticket simply by holding your KBC Bank Card close to a payment terminal. You see instantly whether payment has gone through or not on the screen. It's ideal when you're pushed for time.

A contactless payment is processed in the same way as when you insert your card into the terminal and enter your PIN.

You can make contactless payments with your KBC Bank Card, KBC Prepaid Card and KBC Credit Card.

What do I need to make contactless payments?

If you have a KBC Bank Card, Prepaid Card or Credit Card with the contactless symbol (four little radio waves), you can make contactless payments. . When you see this symbol on a payment terminal, you'll know that you can pay by contactless there. And more and more businesses in Belgium and abroad are starting to support this payment method.

You don't have to insert your bank card into the payment terminal to pay. Instead, all you do is hold your card close to it. Now and again you will have to enter your PIN for security reasons, so that we can be sure you are making payment.

If you still have a card without the symbol, you can easily apply for a new one in KBC Touch or at your bank branch.

Secure means of payment for low-value purchases

You can make contactless payments of up to 25 euros per transaction without having to enter your PIN. However, you will always have to enter your PIN for higher contactless payments.

Consecutive PIN-less transactions are limited to 50 euros in total. If you reach that threshold, you'll need to make a chip and PIN card payment to be able to pay by contactless again.

What if I don't want to make contactless payments?

The feature for making contactless payments is enabled automatically, but you can also disable it and enable it again in KBC Touch.

Even if the feature is enabled on your bank card, you are free to choose each time whether or not to pay by contactless.
