Card payment is one of the most widely used methods in the world, available in practically any corner of the planet and one of the most comfortable, especially after the advent of new technologies. We tell you about the big changes when paying with a card that are already present in Spain and that will forever change the way in which you pay using this method so common among citizens… take note!
The changes when paying with a card that you have to know
The credit card has evolved a lot in recent years, with new technologies such as the chip or contactless that have undoubtedly changed the lives of users and have revolutionized the way in which you can pay, for example by doing it with your watch or the mobile without even having the card nearby. Going for a walk without carrying more than your keys and wanting something on the way back… as easy as going to the supermarket and paying with the card you have registered on your watch… wonderful!
Until not many years ago, every time you paid with a card in any establishment you had to sign the receipt to verify that the signature was the same as the one on the back, and they also used to ask for your ID, something that is no longer mandatory to show but in some places they continue to ask for security reasons, which is not bad. The truth is that thanks to the multiple technologies and security measures that have arrived in recent years, card payments are now much safer than a few years ago.
One of the keys to the changes when paying with a card came with the chips, integrated into the card itself and which include the user’s personal and bank information, a unique chip for each card that makes operations more easily verified. Chip cards are very important as they significantly improve the security of all transactions by generating a unique transaction code for each merchant, making it more difficult for them to be cloned.
Contactless is undoubtedly another great advance, already available in the vast majority of cards and establishments and that allows you to carry out operations with the card without having to swipe it as usual, even having it registered on the mobile or the watch can be used with this technology , without it being necessary to have it physically at that moment. It is also an extremely secure technology that will authenticate itself effectively and will not require you to sign a receipt or have a signature on the card, since you won’t even have to have it on you.
