Dual Interface Cards

Dual Interface Cards can be used in both contact and contactless transactions. The ‘contactless’ part means it has an RFID or NFC chip that enables it to obtain the card’s identifying information and make payments through RFID or NFC technologies. The ‘contact’ part means it can work with physical readers, either via a traditional magnetic stripe or dip into an EMV reader.

RFID: radio-frequency identification
NFC: near-field communication
