- for amounts ˂ USD 50: the cardholder only needs to tap the card on the POS,
- for amounts between USD 50 and USD 500: the cardholder needs to tap the card on the POS and provide his PIN code or signature**,

- option 2: BLF POS without contactless (Paywave): the card is used as an ordinary chip card with the cardholder’s PIN code or signature.
*The minimum and maximum limits depend on the bank that owns the POS (if it’s not a BLF POS).
