Contactless Payments (Tap & Pay)
AUB Debit and Credit cards are now Contactless (Tap & Pay). This means that there is no need for you to enter your PIN, or sign, for everyday purchases under BHD 20. You simply tap the reader with your Tap & Pay card at any contact less terminal and the transaction will be completed in seconds.
You can use Tap & Pay wherever you see the symbol, both in Bahrain and abroad. It is accepted in many retail stores, restaurants and many other outlets.
Tap & Pay payments are safe and secure.
Please note that you will receive SMS transaction alerts on your mobile phone. If you do not recognise any transactions, please call us immediately on +973 1722 1999 so that we can stop your card.
Remember, you are also able to automatically block use of your card yourself by logging on to our internet/mobile banking service and selecting the card number to be stopped on the Card Summary page. Please contact us if you have not yet registered for this service.
Should you not want to use your card for Tap & Pay transactions then you simply choose to insert your card into the chip reader as normal, and you will be prompted to input your PIN.
Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions section for more information.
