Should you reside in the UK, you'll now be able to spend at most £30 on each transaction using Apple Pay, as well as contactless cards. The limit for these types of payments was previously set to £20.
Unfortunately, this new increase will require merchants to upgrade their terminals that are restricted to the £20 limitation. As for consumers, there's absolutely nothing that needs changing on your end, simply head out to your favorite retail outlets that accept contactless and spend your hard-earned cash.
While even £30 doesn't sound like a lot of money, the new limit at least covers the average spend in the supermarket of £25, according to The UK Cards Association.
