How it Works, PayPass*

Back to MasterCard PayPass

Your RBC® MasterCard card includes an embedded chip which, when waved in front of a MasterCard PayPass reader, passes the necessary payment details for the transaction wirelessly, using short-range radio waves.

Paying with MasterCard PayPass is quick, easy and secure. Transactions are authorized, processed and billed in the same secure way as all MasterCard transactions.

Step 1	Look for this symbol or logo Step 2	Tap your card on the secure payment reader Step 3  Wait for approval – list for the beep and look for the lights to flash – and you are good to go.

Your card still has the familiar magnetic strip so if you don't see the PayPass symbol in-store, your card can still be used by swiping and signing for the transaction.
