Contactless and mobile payments
It’s not been long since slotting, swiping and button punching was the only way to pay with plastic… but MBNA credit cards offer a smart range of services, making it quicker than ever to pay and go.
Contactless is an easy and secure way to make payments, usually without entering your PIN.
Using a card – make payments of up to £30.
Using a mobile device – some retailers set their own limits, so check with them before you pay.
Contactless is available at a growing number of places, from coffee shops and train stations, to high street stores.
Look out for the contactless symbol when making a purchase.
Touch your card or mobile device to the reader to pay.
Wait for the beep or green light. This means your transaction is complete.
Enjoy all the benefits of your MBNA credit card using Apple Pay™. It’s the easy, secure and private way to pay.
Add your MBNA credit card to the Android Pay™ App. It’s the easy, fast way to pay with just a tap of your device.
Add your MBNA credit card to the Samsung Pay app – a simple and secure way to make contactless payments with your mobile phone.
We’re always on guard
Contactless and mobile device transactions are protected in the same way as chip and PIN… you might just be asked to enter your PIN occasionally for added security.
We’re always watching for unusual activity and you’re protected against transactions made without your knowledge or consent. Just contact us as soon as you notice anything unusual or if your card or mobile device is missing.
Good to know: if you add your card to a mobile device, your actual card details will never be on display – clever stuff!
When you’re using public transport, contactless could help you skip ticket or top-up queues, making it quicker to get where you’re going, and home again.
If you make card purchases, you will pay interest on these transactions, unless you pay your statement balance in full, every month or if you have a retail promotional interest rate of 0% on your account.
