Is an EMV Chip Card the same as a contactless payment (PayPass™, payWave™)?

No. Instead of waving or tapping your card in front of a device as you do with contactless payments, a chip card must be inserted face up into a chip-enabled merchant terminal. Remember to leave your card inserted into the terminal while the transaction is processed.
