Contactless payments: easy, fast and secure
Instant payments are here! All BGL BNP Paribas credit and debit cards now offer contactless payments.
This technology enables cardholders to make purchases without having to insert the card into the machine.
In Luxembourg, you can use your contactless bank card for any amount. For purchases of less than EUR 25, no PIN code is required up to a maximum total amount of EUR 100. For larger transactions, you’ll need to enter your usual PIN code.
Offer subject to terms and conditions and approval of your application by the bank.
Frequently asked questions
A debit card is a bank card directly tied to your current account. In-store purchases and withdrawals are debited from your account straight away. What’s more, your debit card lets you make free cash withdrawals in euros using the BGL BNP Paribas ATM network, the BNP Paribas group Global Network and the Deutsche Bank network in Germany.
Credit cards are used in conjunction with debit cards.
Credit cards let you pay for your purchases online and defer the full payment of your purchases to the next month, without any additional charges.
Unlike V PAY debit cards, credit cards are accepted everywhere in the world.
What’s more, if you select the Mastercard product range, you’ll also benefit from credit card assistance and insurance services.
However, for ATM withdrawals we suggest you use your V PAY card to limit any fees.
The V PAY card doesn’t include an online payment option. However, our range of credit cards offers access to this feature.
Transactions made with your V PAY card are shown under “purchase/withdrawal” on your current account statement.
Your debit card limit is strictly tied to your current account balance.
The default debit card limit is €1,250 per week for withdrawals and €1,250 per week for in-store payments.
If you wish to change these limits, contact your account manager in order to define the limits best suited to your needs and personal situation.
The bank may grant an overdraft facility depending on your personal situation, subject to your application being approved.
It is best to negotiate an arranged overdraft with your account manager, as an unarranged overdraft or overrun of the agreed amount presents a higher risk for the bank and therefore higher fees. See conditions in the BGL BNP Paribas pricing guide.
Need more flexibility? Contact your advisor to activate an arranged overdraft of up to €12,500 (OptiLine credit facility, subject to approval of your application).
