Your contactless credit card

The quick, easy, safe way to pay

Your Yorkshire Bank credit card is contactless. There’s no need to enter your PIN – just touch & go, for amounts of £30 or under.

How contactless works

It's fast, simple and secure. Just touch your contactless card against the card terminal reader when you're ready to pay. You’ll hear a beep and see a green light on the reader. You’ve paid. If you need a receipt, just ask the retailer.

Safe and secure

Contactless is just as secure as Chip and PIN. You get the same level of fraud protection. Your contactless purchases are included in your statement, and if you think you’ve been charged incorrectly, just get in touch.

When you use your contactless card, it's important that you take your card out of your purse or wallet - this makes sure the right card is charged.

Sometimes you’ll be asked to enter your PIN for added security.
