Coral Contactless Credit Card FAQs
How does the card work?
ICICI Bank Coral Contactless Credit Card has a chip and a radio frequency antenna embedded. When the Contactless Credit Card is tapped against terminal enabled for contactless payments, the card transmits payment details wirelessly, eliminating the need to insert it. Account details are communicated to the reader and then processed through the secure MasterCard® acceptance network in the usual way.
Where can the ICICI Bank Coral Contactless Credit Card be used?
Anywhere that the Contactless payment PoS Machine is available, the card can be used to tap and pay. If a contactless PoS machine is not available, the Contactless card can still be used for swipe or dip transactions. If the PoS machine has a contactless symbol displayed on it, then it is enabled for contactless payments.
What if the customer is passing by a terminal and a contactless transaction takes place?
The contactless technology works only when the card is waved at a maximum range of 4 cms. Hence, even if the customer is at a small distance from the terminal, no accidental transaction can take place.
Plus the cashier must first enter the amount on the PoS machine before the card is tapped and payment is processed.
