Always in a rush? That’s why here at HSBC, we are always looking for ways to make your life more convenient.

The ultimate in convenience

With HSBC’s Contactless Credit and Debit Cards, no swiping is necessary when paying for your transactions. Simply tap your card at designated Contactless Credit and Debit Card payment terminals here and abroad. What’s more, transactions worth PHP2,000 and below do not require a signature or PIN, making your transaction much faster to complete.

Contactless card technology was created not just to provide you the ultimate in shopping convenience. When paying a contactless transaction, your credit and debit card never has to leave your hands, making it safe and secure.


Your new HSBC credit and debit card also has an EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) Chip embedded in it, which provides you with the global standard in credit and debit card security controls. With the EMV Chip, the chance of your card being compromised is greatly reduced. Now, you can truly be confident in using your HSBC credit and debit card anywhere in the world.
