    Is this legal shops to print full 16 digits on the receipts?

    It's really scary to see the all the digits on the receipts with expiry date. This can be misused by someone easily by just remember few 3 digit back of the card. Why can't card companies make it safer.

    I am looking at a receipt I received last night for a contactless payment. Only one button was pressed by the barperson and the long number is **** **** **** 1234.

    Yeah but most card machines will print *** even for the merchant copy for contactless.

    There is only one shop I use regularly that uses contactless and does not have an integrated epos system. I seem to get 2 different receipts from them depending on which till I use. One is "duplicate receipt", the several button option, which has **** for card, M and TID and "reprint merchant copy", the single button, which has full numbers. Maybe different systems work differently.
