Re: contact payment requirement for contactless bank card

I've had a few cases, particularly in restaurants, where the payment terminal won't accept contactless payments on the terrace outside the restaurant, but will accept payment when inserting the card. The waiter usually mutters something about the wifi not working well outside, but that doesn't make sense to me. Unless contactless payment requires a proper permanent internet connection, whilst card/PIN payments can be accepted without and are transferred once the terminal returns back inside?
