BBK introduces the new contactless payment method: Tap and Go

BBK, Bahrain’s pioneer in retail and commercial banking, is proud to announce the launch of contactless debit cards which offers a new method of payment for its customers to purchase products and services. This secure method of payment namely, “Tap and Go”, enables customers to make payments simply by tapping their contactless debit cards near a point-of-sale terminal to make payments or purchases.

Mr. Reyadh Sater, BBK’s Chief Executive commented: “In our continuous efforts to provide our customers with exceptional and innovative customer service experiences all the while keeping up with the latest technological advancements, I am proud to announce the launch of contactless debit cards to all our BBK cardholders. The “Tap and Go” service is a new method of payment where our customers will be able to make purchases and payments by tapping their new contactless debit cards near an enabled point-of-sale terminal without the need to insert the card or enter a PIN. The new cards will create a seamless and fast payment experience for our customers in this fast moving world in a simple and convenient setting.”

BBK  started issuing contactless debit cards for customers starting from May 18th, 2019 and with that, all new accounts opened after or are due for renewal of their debit cards will receive NFC enabled cards. They can use their BBK debit cards for contactless payments without entering a PIN up to a limit of BD 20 per transaction”.

The “Tap and Go” service is enabled using NFC technology (near-field communication) which allows cards with NFC tags and an active electronic terminal that is NFC enabled to connect at a close range. BBK Customers can start using their enabled debit cards for “Tap and Go” service in all enabled point-of-sale terminals in Bahrain and abroad. The service will also be available over BBK ATM machines in the near future.
