How do I know if a store accepts contactless payments?

There is a common, easy-to-find contactless symbol found on all payment terminals that accept contactless payment. Look for this mark and you know to use your contactless payment card!

It's more likely to find your contactless payment accepted at a fast food restaurant, convenience store and transport terminal, where you would use the card as an alternative to cash or a check for a lower value payment. It's also more common to use the card at remote or unattended payment situations, such as vending machines, road tolls or parking meters.
