RCB Digital Wallet

Now you have an easy and secure way to pay with your mobile phone around the world wherever contactless payments are accepted. All you need to have is an Android smartphone with NFC capabilities.

All you need to do is to put your phone to the contactless payment terminal and your RCB Visa card will be charged for the transaction.

Depending on the amount and RCB Digital Wallet settings, you may need to either unlock your mobile or launch RCB Digital Wallet to make a payment.

You will get a notification with all payment details when the transaction is finished and will be able to view your last 10 transactions in RCB Digital Wallet.
