How do I know if the customer's payment card is contactless?
Contactless cards have an EMV® Contactless Indicator on the back or the front of the card.
When a customer taps their card, the interface displays a “Try a Different Card” or “Unable to Read Card” error. What does this mean?
This means that the customer is using a contactless card that is not supported. For example, an international customer may have a card that isn't widely accepted outside their region.
What if a contactless payment card is not being read?
The performance of contactless cards can vary based on the card design, such as the card material or the location of the antenna. As a result, some cards connect more easily than others.
Try the following to ensure a successful card read:
First, ask the customer to hold their contactless payment card directly on the device with the chip on the left side and the longer side of the card lined up with the edge of the tap area for several seconds.
If the card still doesn't read, ask the customer to slide the card to center the chip directly over the notch on the device.
If the contactless card remains unread without any feedback from the interface, the card might have a damaged antenna or might not work with contactless payments.
