Through simply tapping of your Visa cards on a payment terminal for your transactions, you’re given a faster and more convenient way of payment from SM and its affiliate stores. With this, payments under P2,000 no longer require dipping, swiping, or signing.

Cardholders will be able to make contactless payments in 5,000 contactless terminals across 59 SM Stores in 68 SM Supermalls in the country.
