Can I pay contactless with my Lydia card?

Updated 3 months ago by Flore

The Lydia card supports contactless payments.

You can choose to enable or disable contactless payments directly on the app.


Contactless payment

It refers to a payment made without entering your credit card into a terminal and typing your PIN. You only have to press your card against the terminal to pay. More and more retailers accept this payment technique for amounts under €20.


NFC is short for "Near Field Communication", the technology behind contactless payments. The Lydia card has an NFC chip.

Follow these steps to disable contactless payments:

  1. Go to the Lydia card menu in the last tab and hit "Manage my Lydia cards"
  2. Click "Features"
  3. Drag the button next to "Contactless". The button turns grey (disabled)

Done: The card will not allow contactless payments.

How do I enable contactless payments?
