Coronavirus Kent - Contactless Payment Limits Boosted to £4509-Apr-2020
The spending limit for contact-less card payments in Kent will shortly be increased from £30 to £45.
Launching nationally at the beginning of April, consumers will begin to see an increasing number of retailers accepting contactless card payments up to the new £45 limit.
Given the pace at which this change is being rolled out, the new limits will take some time to be introduced across all retailers.
For consumers spending more than £45 there are many ways to choose to pay, for example through chip and PIN, cash and alternatives such as mobile payments which do not have an upper limit when authenticated through biometric technologies.
