Gift card & Prepaid Card:

Cards that are associated with a particular retailer can, of course, only be used to make purchases at that retail store. Depending on the retailer, though, it may be possible to use a gift card for one store to purchase a gift card to another retailer, though that's not always possible. (You can't buy a Limited Express gift card at Aeropostale, for example, though you may be able to buy an Amazon gift card at Office Depot.) If you've received gift cards you don't plan to use, you can sell them on gift card exchange sites, or exchange them for a card you prefer. You can also buy gift cards at a discount on these sites. Not sure which store your gift recipient prefers? Consider a mall-wide card, or a card that carries the logo of one of the major card issuers, so that the person who gets the card can can shop at all the stores in the mall or wherever he or she wants.
 

 

Prepaid cards are very flexible since they can be accepted anywhere that particular brand of card -- MasterCard, Visa, or American Express -- is accepted.

 

Proximity cards:

Proximity cards, also known as prox cards, are low frequency 125 kHz credentials that feature an embedded metallic antenna coil that stores cardholder data. Data stored on a proximity card, key fob or tag can be detected by a reader when the proximity card is passed within range.

Contactless card:

contactless smart card is a contactless 13.56-MHz credential whose dimensions are credit-card size. Its embedded integrated circuits can store and sometimes process data and communicate with a terminal via radio waves. There are two broad categories of contactless smart cards. Memory cards contain non-volatile memory storage components, and perhaps some specific security logic. Contactless smart cards do contain read-only RFID called CSN (Card Serial Number) or UID, and a re-writeable smart card microchip that can be transcribed via radio waves.

(Contactless payments are usually made with debit, credit, charge or pre-paid cards for purchases under £30. There's no need for a PIN or signature, just touch your card on a contactless card reader. Some other methods of contactless payment are accepted on our services, including mobile phone apps, key fobs, stickers and wristbands.)

(The underlying technology for all of these contactless payment devices is the same. The contactless device contains an antenna so that when it is touched against a contactless terminal, it securely transmits purchase information to and from the terminal.)
