Target now accepts contactless payment, also known as NFC, at our stores.
Simply hold your contactless card, mobile device or wearable over the card reader screen to initiate payment until the confirmation that the payment was successful displays on the screen, and then follow the prompts on your device or card reader screen. You can do this at any time while you check out, including while the cashier is still scanning items.
Any contactless payment type can be accepted.
Some examples of contactless payment types are:
- Contactless credit/debit cards printed with this symbol:
- Mobile phone digital wallets (e.g., Apple Pay®, Google Pay, Samsung Pay)
- Wearables with payment enabled (e.g., Apple Watch®, Fitbit Pay)
If $51 flashes on your my mobile device screen while you are paying, please note that this is only a placeholder amount that is set to kick off payment processing – your card will only be charged for the actual amount of your purchase.
On your receipt, you may notice that that last 4 digits printed on the receipt are different from your card number. For digital wallets (e.g., Apple Pay) the device will tokenize your real card number to protect the card data, so the last 4 digits may look different.
