TMC parking systems support the most common payment options like payment with debit card (including Dip & Go, Dynamic debit card payment and Tap & Go), credit card and coins. Any combination is possible, it is up to you as an administrator to determine which options to offer.
All TMC parking meters are suitable for payments by debit card. In most cases the parker can start the payment transaction by inserting his card. The terminals accept the most used debit cards: Maestro and V PAY.
The payment terminals support debit card payment without PIN-code (Dip & Go). For amounts under 50 euros, the parker doesn’t have to enter his PIN-code. Because the PIN-code is not enterred, card skimming is impossible. This system only works for parking payment.
For amounts above 50 euros, entry of PIN code is mandatory and Dip & Go can also be disabled. For this, TMC offers "Dynamic debit card payment". The parking meter selects Dip & Go payment by default. If this is not supported, the machine automatically enables the PIN pad and the parker can enter his PIN code.
The TMC parking meters are prepared for contactless payment methods like Tap & Go. The Payment Card Industry (including Mastercard and VISA) and the Dutch Payment Organization have stated that by January 1st, 2020 the Tap & Go payment method is compulsory. By this date, all parking meters with card payment must be provided with a contactless Tap & Go reader.
Still there is much demand for the ability to pay with coins. All parking meters can be configured for coin payment. The terminals accept coins from 10 cent pieces to 2 euro pieces.
In locations like airports or other locations with many tourists, there is more demand for credit card payment. All parking terminals support credit card payments and accept the most used credit cards: Mastercard and Visa.
With a (city bound) loyalty card, shoppers can save up for discounts, free items or other promotions at affiliated stores. These loyalty points can also be used to purchase a parking ticket at a TMC parking meter equipped with a barcode reader.
