Get the Facts on Contactless

At the June 2018 Visa Payments Forum, Visa reported that nearly 70 percent of all merchant terminals in the U.S. are now equipped with NFC (Near-Field Communication) setting the stage for contactless payments - the next phase of EMV. While many of these terminals have not yet been enabled, contactless payments will likely get a boost as first-gen EMV chip cards begin to expire and financial institutions strategically reissue plastics that feature chips embedded with NFC technology. These early adopters will be poised to shift volume from cash and competitors thereby driving top-of-wallet status.
