At a glance
Our credit cards come with Contactless technology. This means you have a super-quick, no-fuss way to pay for everyday items under €50 like a coffee, lunch or travel.
So, whenever you see the Contactless symbol on the card reader, simply tell the retailer you want to pay by Contactless and touch your card against the reader.
How does it work?
It's safe and secure
Contactless payments are just as secure as Chip and PIN (Personal Identification Number) and you get exactly the same money-back guarantee if you're ever a victim of fraud.
Before you make your first Contactless transaction you will need to complete a successful Chip and PIN transaction. From time to time, we'll also ask for your PIN as extra security.
We take security very seriously. Provided you've looked after your card and PIN, we'll protect you should you experience any loss or fraud.
Join the cash-free revolution
More and more places are accepting Contactless payments.
You can already use it at M&S, McDonald's, Boots and Arnotts. The list is growing all the time. Just look out for the Contactless symbol when you're paying.
It's still a credit card too
Your Contactless card still has all the benefits and security features of a credit card. Contactless is simply an extra feature that provides you with another choice of how to pay for everyday items under €50.
Other benefits include:
- Purchase Protection, allowing you to recover payment for faulty or undelivered goods
- Secure online shopping through Ulster Bank Secure
- Worldwide acceptance wherever the MasterCard and Visa logo are displayed (fees apply for non-domestic payments)
- The ability to set up recurring payments
