Contactless Card:

It is a card that has a chip inside it that emits radio waves and an antenna is built into the plastic cover to secure with a contactless reader. It is also known as RFID(radio frequency identification) technology.

If we are taking an example to pay some amount with a contactless credit card, we hold the card near a payment terminal (known as an RFID – radio frequency identification reader) and it catches the signal, communicates with the card, and processes the payment.

You will get a notification for successful payment or failed payments through the payment device. If it doesn’t work then you need to use your card’s pin instead.

Mobile phones and other electronic devices use something called NFC(near-field communication) to transmit data – which is based on the technology used in RFID.
