Consumer Tips for shoppers:

  • If a contactless payment option is available (e.g., Apple Pay, or tap and pay), use it.
  • Clean your payment cards using soap, hand sanitizer, or alcohol after each use.
  • Maintain control of your card, whenever possible, rather than handing it to the merchant.
  • If asked for a signature, PIN, or other information at the payment terminal, use your own pen (for signing) or personal stylus (for touchscreens) if you can.
  • If using home delivery services, pay in advance through a website, app, or telephone.
