The ‘girogo’ project

The programme, dubbed the ‘girogo’ project, is one of Europe’s largest contactless payment trials and will take place in the metropolitan area of Hanover, Braunschweig and Wolfsburg, reports contactlessnews.com. The project will roll out tap-and-go payment terminals at various merchant outlets throughout the area, enabling around 1.3 million people to make contactless payments. Purchases of up to EUR20 can be made without requiring a PIN for authentication.
