What is Tap & Pay?
When we use a Contactless Card to tap on the Contactless reader to make a payment, instead of swiping a magstripe card, we are essentially using Tap & Pay technology. The same goes for any NFC enabled mobile device that support
Card Emulation Mode – like Android and Blackberry. Tap & Pay is just a marketing terminology. You may also see it referred to as
Tap to Pay,
Tap & Go,
Wave & Pay and so on.
