Contactless technology uses a hidden, embedded computer chip and radio frequency antennae. After you tap your contactless card or mobile device at checkout, payment details are sent wirelessly to the payment network. If using a mobile phone, moments after you tap, you'll receive payment confirmation and be on your way.

Purchases made with contactless will be displayed on your account statement just like any other card purchase.
