Tap to Pay
A secure, convenient and touch-free way to make everyday purchases. If your First Bank & Trust Visa debit or credit card has the Contactless Indicator on it, you can use it to make purchases with a simple tap wherever you see the Contactless Symbol.
How it Works
Want to Know More?
How do I know if I can tap to pay with my card?
Look for the Contactless Indicator on your card to know if you can use it to tap to pay for purchases.
Do I actually need to tap my contactless chip card on the contactless-enabled terminal?
No. However, the card should be close (within 1-2 inches) to the Contactless Symbol on the contactless-enable terminal.
How do I hold my contactless chip card to the contactless-enabled terminal?
The terminal reads the card best when it is flat over the Contactless Symbol, versus at an angle.
How long do I need to hold my contactless chip card to the contactless-enabled terminal?
You should hold your contactless chip card to the contactless-enabled terminal for 1-2 seconds.
Can I unknowingly make a purchase if I am near a contactless-enabled terminal?
No. Contactless technology requires the merchant to first initiate the payment, and the contactless chip card must be held close (1-2 inches) to the terminal for a transaction to take place.

How do I get a contactless card?
- New customers will receive a contactless card at the time of account opening if they opt to receive a debit/ATM card.
- Existing customers will receive a contactless card when their current card expires. You may also request a replacement card for no charge one of these ways:
- All new and existing cardholders have a contactless card.
Can I get a card without the contactless feature?
All cards will be contactless enabled. You can continue to insert your card's chip at chip-enabled terminals, or swipe the magnetic stripe, if you do not wish to use the contactless feature.
