HBL launches contactless POS machines and cards for convenient and secure payments.
HBL DebitCard now comes with contactless technology, for more convenient transactions. Contactless transactions do not require you to swipe your debit card or enter your PIN code (unless above the payment threshold) into the POS machine, thus allowing you to make payments faster and easier as well as reducing the need for you to carry cash.
Contactless technology also allows you to keep your card more secure as it never has to leave your hand when making a payment at the POS machine.
You can make a contactless transaction at any merchant where the POS machine is displaying the contactless symbol

In other countries, the limit might be set differently according to the rules in force. Transactions for amounts above the defined limits will be completed using your PIN. A contactless payment can be rejected at any POS machine and instead the cardholder may be required to perform the transaction using the PIN.
