Contactless limit increase

The contactless limit will increase to £100 on 15 October 2021 and all card machines in the UK must be capable of accepting contactless card transactions up to the new limit of £100.

If you rent a terminal from us, you don’t need to worry about this change, as we’ll make the updates from early October. This doesn’t affect contactless payments via digital wallets, as they continue to offer no limit on transactions.

If you require more details, please visit the Global Payments Help Centre.
