You can pay by card in the shops and service companies where the logo shown on your bank card is displayed in a visible
place (usually on the door or by the tills). Ask a sales assistant if in doubt.
If you pay for your purchases by card, the relevant amount will be booked on your account and debited within one to ten days.
Confirm the transaction by entering your PIN or by signing the receipt given to you by the sales assistant. Make sure that the transaction amount is correct before signing or entering your PIN. New contactless cards allow you to make purchases to a value of up to €10 without having to slot your card into the payment terminal or enter your PIN. You only need to tap it against the terminal.
The bank debits the amount from your account in euros if you pay by card when abroad. You don't have to pay any service charges if you pay by card.
