More than 65% of payment cards issued in 2020 supports contactless function, the growth might be the result of the COVID-19, ABI said. As contactless payment is more hygienic than cash and relieves demand on physical contact with payment terminals, people present more interest at it.


Contactless payment means that customers need not pay by cash or insert their credit or debit card into the payment device. As long as he put his payment side close to the reading device, the transaction can be completed. Besides the contactless card, there are other contactless payment methods that emerge in the market in an attempt to reduce potential virus spread through human contact, including QR code payment, face payment, and voice payment.
