When a customer taps their card, the interface displays a “Try a Different Card” or “Unable to Read Card” error. What does this mean?
This means that the customer is using a contactless card that NatWest Tap to Pay doesn't currently support. For example, an international customer may have a card that isn't widely accepted outside their region.
NatWest Tap to Pay currently supports Mastercard and Visa, including digital wallets such as Apple Pay or Google Pay. Discover® and Diners Club card acceptance is expected in August 2023 and American Express will follow in winter 2024.
I can't seem to take a screenshot of the app, why is that?
Taking screengrabs/shots is denied in Tap to Pay on iPhone with NatWest Tap to Pay to prevent recording of sensitive customer and cardholder information.
Does the time/date on my iPhone have to be accurate?
Yes - for Tap to Pay on iPhone to work, you will need to ensure that the clock is synced with the date/time correct and in a 24 hour format. To do this, go to Settings > Date & Time. Check that 24 hour time in switched on and that date/time are correct - this may already be 'set automatically' which is fine
Do I require passcode access?
While iOS supports biometrics to unlock the iPhone, Apple's software requires at least a passcode to be activated for Tap to Pay on iPhone to work (it's not default requirement on an iPhone). Please check you have a passcode activated by going to Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Check if Passcode is enabled.
