Can I accidentally make a payment as I walk past a card reader?

Updated 2 months ago

No, your card must be used in a specific way to work. That means it needs to be just a few centimetres away from the card reader and not near any metal objects, like keys and mobile phones, or any other contactless card. Card readers are also designed to reject a payment if two contactless cards are presented at the same time.
