The quickness with which the payments can be processed is making it lucrative for businesses to accept contactless payments and the faster checkout times along with the ease of payments is making users upgrade their cards to contactless ones. Contactless payments are usually done by tapping the users' credit/debit card, smartphone, fob, watch etc. to the POS terminal that can take contactless payments.

While the customer base is set to increase as the users come to the end of their card renewal cycle, concerns over the security of information that can be read through the contactless cards and the limit of payments that can be made in a single transaction are set to hinder the growth to some extent. However, the companies providing this service and the government are actively monitoring the situation on the maximum amount permissible per transaction by revising the cap in a timely manner to encourage contactless payments.

There have been international standards like ISO/IEC 15693, ISO/IEC 14443 that provided guidelines for the distance permissible for accepting the cards to the materials, encryption, authentication schemes etc. Smart Card Alliance is an association of firms working on making this technology accessible and gaining popularity as a preferred payment mode.
