How can we help you?

No. First of all, the card needs to be very close to the terminal (always less than ten centimetres and usually less than two centimetres) - so generally a touch of the card above the terminal is required to make the payment.

Also, in a typical transaction, the sales assistant has to enter the amount for you to approve first, and then your card has to be held within a couple of centimetres of the terminal for longer than half a second.
