What is Cash on Tap?

Cash on Tap is a contactless payment service exclusively available on selected EE phones.

With Cash on Tap, you don't have to get your wallet out, withdraw cash or sort through change whenever you want to buy something. Simply tap your phone on any contactless card reader to pay for anything under £20.

You can already tap and pay in places like McDonalds, M&S, Pret A Manger and on Transport for London - trains, buses and the tube. Look out for the contactless logo.

Plus we've partnered with MasterCard® so you can rest assured that the service is totally safe and secure.

Using Cash on Tap - get your NFC SIM
