Can I “tap” my chip-enabled card at the register when making a purchase?

No, that’s a different technology known as “Near Field Communication” or “NFC." EMV chip cards are used by inserting the card into the register’s payment terminal.

However, you can add your Green Dot card to your digital wallet for Apple Pay®, Google Pay™ or Samsung Pay® to pay with your mobile phone, smart watch, fitness tracker or other device.  You can use your digital wallet with NFC technology.
