Bogota, September 2018. For Banco de Bogotá it is very important to present its customers with new technologies that allow them to facilitate their daily life with their Credit Cards, therefore it presents Contactless Payment.

Banco de Bogotá is one of the pioneers in implementing and promoting the use of this technology in its Credit and Debit Cards, which has been revolutionizing the experience of customers worldwide in the way they make purchases in different stores.

One of the Bank’s greatest challenges is to improve the customer’s shopping experience. “From now on, our credit card customers will enjoy the benefits of contactless payments, which makes shopping easier and safer. We want to increase confidence and encourage our customers to make any type of purchase through Contactless Payments; payments will be more agile since no voucher signature is required in some cases”, said Julio Ortiz, Product Manager of Banco de Bogotá.

Complete information about contactless cardsWith a contactless card, you can pay by simply placing it next to the reader or waving it over it, without having to insert it. Most cell phones also include contactless payment technology, so you don’t have to dig for your card in your wallet.

Contactless payments are a form of payment that does not require cash or the insertion of a card. When you want to make a payment, simply place your cell phone or contactless card next to a compatible reader. The terminal will automatically connect to your bank account and the purchase will be processed within seconds.

A contactless card is a debit or credit card that incorporates contactless payment technology. Although you do not normally have to insert the card into the reader, you may be asked to enter your PIN from time to time, for security reasons or to confirm transactions over a certain amount.

In addition, most card issuers require processing a traditional chip-and-PIN transaction before activating contactless payment technology.Ensuring contactless securityThere is a risk that your contactless card could fall into the wrong hands, so banks set a limit for contactless payments, around $50. This prevents high-value fraudulent transactions if your card is lost or stolen.
