Contactless and mobile payment
With the GoldCard, you can pay for your purchases contactlessly at the checkout - easily, quickly and securely. Just hold your card up to the card reader with contactless function. The amount is authorized in less than a second. As a rule, you only need to enter your PIN to secure the payment for amounts over 50 dollars. As usual, you are billed once a month via your checking account. You can tell whether your gold credit card is ready for contactless payment by the corresponding symbol on the card. You can also make convenient mobile payments with your digital GoldCard in the Pay app. To do so, simply hold your smartphone with Android operating system up to the card reader - without entering a PIN at the payment terminal. With your Apple device, you can use the Apple Pay payment solution.
