Galileo Touch-Free Contactless Payments

Touch-free contactless payments, so your customers don’t have to touch that!

Galileo Touch-Free Contactless Payments offer your customers a faster and more convenient experience at the point of sale—leading cardholders to make their contactless cards their top-of-wallet choice for in-store purchases.

In addition, contactless payments appeal to consumers’ heightened sensitivity to protect their health in every possible way by avoiding direct contact with point-of-sale terminals—with uncertain sanitization procedures and schedules—used by hundreds or even thousands of people.

Eliminate physical contact at the point of sale.

Provide a Better Customer Experience

With contactless cards, your customers breeze through the checkout process.

Avoid Direct Contact with POS Terminals

Using contactless cards and other contactless form factors, your customers avoid direct contact with the germs and viruses that may reside on point-of-sale terminals.

Choose Your Integrated Card Manufacturer

We support more than a dozen card manufacturers, so you can pick the one that’s right for you.

Don’t Forget the Pays

Galileo supports Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay for Mastercard and Visa—offering you and your customers full contactless payment flexibility.
