Occasionally you may find that you can't Tap & Pay at certain contactless terminals. This may be due to the type of terminal, specifically terminals that authorises payments offline. Offline contactless terminals may be found in vending machines, parking meters, cruise ships, etc.
Offline terminals do not connect with Visa, Mastercard®, and our networks. Instead, they capture your account information and process the payment at a later time. This means that offline terminals can't process Tap & Pay payments. If you are unsuccessful in making a Tap & Pay payment, make the payment with your plastic card instead.
Any changes made to your plastic card(s) will also apply to the card(s) set up in Tap & Pay. As an example, if you report your plastic card lost or stolen, your Tap & Pay card(s) will also be blocked. From 7 December 2018, if your card is reported lost or stolen you will not be able to add your re-issued card to Tap & Pay.
