Where to Pay
You can tap your card at most retailers, including coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations for any purchase up to $250. If you don't see the contactless symbol when making a purchase, either swipe or insert your chip card into the terminal to pay.
Using Your Smartphone to Pay
When you load your RBC debit or credit cards into the RBC Mobile app, you can pay for purchases up to $250 with your mobile device.
Concerned about Credit Card Fraud?
Rest easy! Your card uses chip technology to provide the most secure contactless payment system, keeping you in control the entire time. If you’ve been responsible in protecting your card, you’re protected against any fraudulent or unauthorized use of your card both in-store and online.
