FNB is expanding the roll-out of contactless ‘Tap & PIN’ functionality to 600 more ATMs across South Africa in the next 12 months.
This is in addition to over 100 FNB ATMs which have been equipped with the functionality since 2018.
The ‘Tap and PIN’ functionality allows FNB customers with contactless-enabled debit and credit cards to perform convenient and secure ATM transactions without the card leaving their hand.
At launch, FNB was the first bank in South Africa to announce the availability of contactless-enabled ATMs.
Currently, Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Western Cape have the largest device footprint of FNB ATMs that are contactless-enabled. However, the planned expansion will cover most parts of the country and the key sites will be announced in due course.
“This roll-out is part of our journey to consistently empower customers with tools to perform transactions in a convenient and secure manner. We have been issuing contactless enabled debit and credit cards to help customers take full advantage of the growing contactless ecosystem,” Raj Makanjee, CEO of FNB Retail says.
“Our customers also have the option of making contactless payments using FNB Pay on our App, or any of our supported ‘Pay’ wallets (Samsung, Fitbit and Garmin). In addition, the new Scan to Pay feature on the FNB App enables our customers to perform digital payments by scanning almost any QR Code in SA.”
