While commenting on the launching, Naveed Mushtaq, Business Head – Credit Cards, Silkbank, mentioned that with the introduction of Contactless (Tap to Pay) Credit Cards, Silkbank has taken a giant leap towards enabling its credit card holders to access growing global trends and offering better customer experience to attain top-of-wallet status.
As per the data received from Visa, contactless transactions share had increased from 35% in January 2020 to 47% in August 2020 globally, therefore, it had become all the more important to timely adopt this technology, he added.
