Who is it for?
For All NBK Customers who are currently holding NBK Tap & Pay Card.
What do I get?
A fast & convenient way of making payments.
How does it work?
By tapping your card on the POS machine only, and you are good to go.
What is the difference between my NBK Tap & Pay Wristband or Sticker and my standard NBK Debit, Prepaid or Credit Card?
A standard NBK Card would allow you to pay for purchases worth more than KD 100, while with NBK Tap & Pay Wristbands or Stickers, there is no need to carry a wallet. Your NBK Tap & Pay Wristbands or Stickers can be used to pay for items worth up to KD 100. If you wish to do a transaction using your NBK Tap & Pay for more than KD 100, you can use it online.
How does the NBK Tap & Pay service work?
NBK Tap & Pay cards have an embedded antenna and microchip, enabling "contactless" communication with a reader at the checkout. No swiping, inserting, signing or PIN entry is required for purchases under the merchant's set limit. If your purchase is over the merchant's set limit, you may be asked to swipe or insert your card and enter your PIN instead.
Could I accidently be charged twice for the same transaction?
This is not possible because for every transaction you will have to enter the value and a receipt will be printed as soon as you tap the card.
