The limit set on contactless payments has now been raised from a maximum of £20 to a maximum of £30, in order to meet the requirements of the UK public. 

Contactless, or PIN-free payments, has had the total limit raised by £5, which is £5 above the average supermarket spend, of course in a bid to encourage consumers to further use their card.

Research by the UKCA found that £2.5bn has been spent using contactless cards in the first half of 2015, indicating that consumers in the UK are becoming strong adopters of the payment method.
