In which cases will my card PIN be required to complete the transaction?

When using contactless cards, you will be asked to enter your card PIN for completing transactions in the following cases: 

  • Contactless payments for purchases over Euro 50* 
  • Payments for purchases made by inserting your card into the POS terminal

Use of contactless cards in ATMs

Please bear in mind that you might still be asked to enter your card PIN, even for payments for purchases below Euro 50*, in order for the transaction to be completed.
