You can choose to pay either by inserting your card in the POS and entering the PIN code, or you can opt for fast payments, by means of the "contactless" technology within the units displaying the "contactless" logo, by merely approaching the card to the special reader. In case of larger amounts, you will also be requested to confirm the payment by entering the PIN code:
- For payments below lei 100, the PIN code is not necessary, and taking the receipt is optional
- For payments in excess of lei 100, it is mandatory to enter the PIN code
- For any "contactless" transaction initiated, but failed, the payment in standard mode will be resumed, by inserting the card in the POS device.
