Payments with a smartphone or smart device are made either contactless via NFC technology or via a QR code.


What do I need to make a contactless payment?


To let your customers pay contactless with their smartphone, you need a payment solution for card payments: a payment terminal or a card reader linked to your smartphone or tablet.


Your customer needs a smartphone with an NFC chip and an app that allows contactless payments.

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology that allows short-range wireless communication between devices. It enables data exchange and communication between devices that are in close proximity to each other, usually within a few centimeters. You can recognize NFC by the icon on the device or card, which typically depicts four curved lines or waves.

Payments via QR-code


What do I need to make a payment via QR code?

Each transaction generates a unique response code (quick response code) that your customer has to scan to pay. For this you only need a smartphone, tablet or PC.

Your customer needs a smartphone with an app that can scan the code.

No payment terminal or card reader is needed.

For more information, please contact the provider of your payment solution or your bank.
