For security reasons, you will be required to enter your PIN number or sign a receipt slip for purchases over RUB 1,000. If you shop outside of Russia, you need to ask the merchant what the transaction limit is.

You can only Tap and Go if the terminal supports MasterCard PayPass. If there is no such terminal or it is not operational, you can pay in the traditional way using the magnetic stripe or chip2.


  • Simple. Simply tap your MasterCard PayPass on the reader at checkout. Before you tap, check that the amount on the screen is correct.
  • Fast. MasterCard PayPass makes checkout faster and easier than ever. Plus, you don't have to enter your PIN number or sign a receipt slip for purchases under RUB 1,000.
  • Safe. You don't need to hand your MasterCard PayPass to the cashier. You are in control because your MasterCard PayPass never leaves your hand at checkout. You will only be billed once even if you tap twice by mistake. Once your first payment has been accepted, you will hear a beep and the reader will turn off.
