Tap & Pay is pretty much what it says it is, you tap your card on the KNET machine, and the money is extracted. If it use to take you on average 30 – 60 seconds to pay, now it will take you 5 seconds. It’s a nice feature, but I do have security concerns. If I lost my
credit card I normally aren’t worried because my card is password protected, but with this payment method, someone can walk around and just tap and pay everywhere.
To use this feature, you’ll have to renew your
credit card to get the Tap & Pay service, from what I understood you cannot opt-out of the service, every new card will be a contactless card whether you like it or not. They currently have an offer with Magnet, one of my favorite places to go study. Wherein if you use the Tap & Pay service, your coffee will be free paid by NBK.
