How do I know if my card is a Contactless card?

If your card has this symbol on  contactless-card-tiny.jpg, it's contactless.


You can use your Contactless card wherever you see the contactless symbol.




Please note: Before you can use your card to make a contactless payment, you'll need to have activated it and used it with your PIN (either to buy something or at a cash machine). This is an added security check to protect you.

You're not able to issue contactless credit cards, so your second sentence is misleading.

I think it was meant as a generic reference to the Contactless symbol

How long after using a replacement card with the PIN does contactless become active? I used my card yesterday with the PIN and went to use it contactless today and it didn't work?

Hi @mdjennings, I'm sorry to hear this hasn't worked! It sometimes takes a couple of attempts at using your card with the PIN before contactless is activated, so I would pay using your PIN again and if you're still having issues using contactless, please get back in touch. I hope this helps!
