Mastercard Tap & Go® is quickly catching on in Kenya. It is a contactless technology that lets you make everyday purchases quickly and safely with just a tap of your contactless-enabled Mastercard. So checkout is easier than ever, and it’s faster than fumbling with cash.

- Make a purchase with any Mastercard at a merchant that has a contactless terminal.
- Hold your card within 4
