Circontrol adds contactless card payment to its European charging stations

As human contact becomes passé, contactless bank card payments are surging in popularity. Barcelona-based Circontrol has become the latest charging provider to add a contactless payment system to its public chargers.

The company has already implemented the contactless payment system on its 400 fast chargers in the UK, and is now rolling it out in other European countries.

Users can pay by simply waving their contactless card or phone over the terminal, without having to touch a keypad, download an app or enter a PIN (provided the transaction amount does not exceed the preset limit).
