We’re all taking those extra precautions to safeguard our health right now, and looking to find ways of protecting those around us too. Given the recent impact of COVID-19, we’re taking steps to help halt the spread, and increasing our contactless payments limit to €100 when using your bunq card. Register your card to Apple or Google Pay and get limitless spending straight from your phone. Keep your card safe in your wallet away from any germs, and confirm payments straight from your fingertips.
Pay with contactless, on more of your transactions, and leave the germs at the checkout
With the previous limit of €50, you’d often find yourself at the card terminal being asked to insert your card, and enter your pin, even with those ‘quick’ visits to the store. We’re streamlining this process, and making those quick visits exactly that, with the added bonus of a more hygienic way to pay.
Not only will our increased limit keep the germs at bay on more of your transactions, contactless payments are easier and more efficient than conventional chip & pin methods, and even cash. Keep an even safer distance by using Apple or Google Pay, and hold your phone within 2 inches of the terminal for the payment to register.
Increased limit for single contactless transactions in the Netherlands
We're making it easier to stay contactless at communal card terminals, keeping you healthy and safe as you shop. bunqers in the Netherlands can now make a single contactless payment up to the value of €50 before requiring a PIN. The cumulative contactless limit will remain at €100, and you'll be asked to enter your PIN whenever your combined payments reach this amount.
