Why don’t I have to sign or enter a PIN when I pay using my contactless card?

Contactless payment is all about speed, particularly in places that traditionally have not accepted credit cards because of the time it takes to conduct the transaction. Eliminating the signature and PIN speeds up your purchase and gets you on your way. It is best to check with the company that issued you your card, but generally if the amount is $25 (€20) or less, neither a signature or PIN is required.
