Contactless Limit in UK to Be Increased to £45
In the News
The spending limit for contactless card payments will be increased from £30 to £45, with a national roll-out beginning from 1 April 2020, UK Finance has announced.
most stores currently have signs to say they’re only accepting contactless payments, to limit chances of transmission, so the increase is welcomed as £45 isn’t very much if someone wants to do a weekly shop instore (if there are enough items available for a weekly shop, that is)
just be careful when paying this way, and keep an eye on your statements, as the card skimmers are just waiting to exploit this
