All About Tap Functionality

Tap or contactless payment is a secure method for purchasing products or services on your Capital One Mastercard®, by using RFID technology or near-field communication (NFC). Tap functionality will be available as soon as you activate your card. To make a contactless payment, tap your card near a point-of-sale terminal that has contactless payment technology.

If your tap functionality is not working, visit our Contact Us page to speak to a customer service representative.

We’re unable to remove the tap feature on our Capital One Mastercard. We can confirm that the feature is very safe and that your information is protected.
