It’s official – we now can take contactless payments. In addition to accepting payments on line from bank to bank, for small jobs and some one off items we have always taken cash and had the ability to been able to take card payments, from Visa, Mastercard and we even accept American Express. But from now we have the additional convenience of taking contactless which for one off small items is so simple.
For UK transactions there is no daily limit on the number of contactless payments you can make, however there is a limit of £30 per transaction and you obviously need to have enough money in your account to cover the cost of your purchase.
Being able to use contactless seems to have made a huge difference to our lives – so when your marketing manager suddenly needs you to go grab a mock up or a proof of something, and lightly says put it on your expenses, paying for it just became a whole lot easier.
