Context!

"I need an imprint of your card." - This is usually said at a hotel, when they need to  take a reading on your card to determine if you are able to pay the bill at the end of your stay!

"lease swipe your card." - This means the card owner needs to "swipe" or pull their card through the machine so that they can be charged for their purchase.

"I'll just need to swipe your card..." - The shop assistant or waiter will take your card and read it with a machine to charge you for your purchases.

Also "run (your card) through the machine" (common) or  "'read' your card" (almost never used).

for now, "swipe the card" is correct.

pretty soon a new version of contactless card will come out.

meanwhile, the word "swiping the card" is correct.
See this news article for verb used for credit card swiping.
