How long does it take for contactless payments to show?
The time it takes for a contactless payment to show up on a customer’s bank statement varies from bank to bank, but usually takes up to two to four working days. However, they may show up as a pending transaction before-hand. Contactless payments are usually signalled on bank statements with the contactless symbol.
