COVID-19 times – Can I not key my NETS ATM PIN?

Good ol’ NETS. What immediately comes to mind when we think about NETS is keying your ATM PIN, Singapore’s very own payment mode which we grew up with and is still an essential part of our lives today. NETS and PIN (aka NETS Pin) has become synonymous with what the brand has to offer – we see it in use everywhere we go, from supermarkets to prata shops and departmental stores.

But herein lies a conundrum: most of us do not know much else about NETS beyond NETS Pin. NETS actually has a variety of cashless payment modes such as eNETS, NETS FlashPay, NETS QR and NETS Contactless ATM card to name a few. Today we’ll be talking about NETS Contactless ATM card, which makes retail purchases a breeze during checkout.

What is NETS Contactless ATM card?

As the name suggests, NETS Contactless ATM card allows you to go contactless and tap your ATM card for purchases under S$100 instead of entering your card PIN during payments. It’s fast, seamless, and secure — every contactless card contains a highly sophisticated chip which performs a wide range of functions to maintain the card’s security, and can interact safely with a contactless terminal.

Tap away using your contactless card without having to worry about tracking your expenditure or incurring late payment charges since payment is directly debited from your bank account.
