Contactless Payment Limit Increases to £45

The spending limit for contactless card payments has been increased from £30 to £45, with a national roll-out beginning from the 1st April 2020.

The decision to raise the limit was taken following consultation between the retail sector and the finance and payments industry and followed similar increases in several other European countries over the past week.

Although initially conceived to aid the current COVID-19 situation, this will represent a permanent change to the contactless limit.

For Bleep Payments customers, to activate this simply complete a ‘TMS call’.
