4 Different ways to Tap and Pay

Contactless payments are not only more hygienic; it’s also faster, more secure and convenient. Discover the various ways in which you can use your Standard Bank Credit Card to Tap to Pay.

1. Tap and Ride at Gautrain stations

Say goodbye to card clutter in your wallet and simply tap your credit card to access a Gautrain train, bus and parking services. For your card’s safety, it’s important not to tag into Gautrain facilities with your wallet. Tapping your wallet instead of your credit card may result in a card clash as the card reader can’t tell which card you intend to travel with. You can simply remove your credit card from your wallet before you tag in or out to avoid card clash.

2. Tap to Pay using your Samsung smartphone with Samsung Pay

Make quick payments with your Samsung smartphone by installing the Samsung Pay app and enrolling your payment card. To pay, simply swipe up from the bottom of your screen, select the desired card, authenticate via PIN, fingerprint or iris and place your compatible Samsung smartphone near the payment terminal.

3. Tap to Pay with your Garmin device

Garmin Pay lets you make purchases quickly and almost effortlessly with nothing needed but your watch. To make a payment, simply enter your passcode, select your credit card, and hold your wrist near the payment machine.
