So we must attach the card to the sensor around cost box so that some money is out in my card.
Instead of “attach”, what is a better expression?
(A similar activity happens when someone enters some building or dormitory. To enter, we use an id card at the entrance.)
[Add] In my question, if we attach a wallet containing the card to the sensor without a gap (no dragging; simply attaching), then the sensor can read the card. The time of attaching is not longer than 2 seconds.
I will introduce similar situation: Nowadays smart phone is touch phone, since if we touch icon in monitor of phone, then the application works.
Two things are similar situation. But there is a difference: In the first, as much as small width of leather of wallet, it can be allowed. But in second, we must attach finger to the phone.
So I decide to choose swipe:
(1) Swipe = hit
Example: The car swiped the side of the garage as he pulled out.
to move something by pulling it along a surface, usually the ground.
