As we all know there is a capped limit of £30 when paying contactless. However Apple Pay have retracted this limit and British retailers have begun accepting payments above the expected amount, creating an even more convenient payment option.
“Apple has confirmed that over half of all contactless payment terminals in the U.K. can now process Apple Pay transactions of any value.”
Apple Pay requires a fingerprint for authentication creating a safer option than the similar debit card payment so many people continuously use. With this additional security which is more difficult to exploit, British retailers are accepting payments much greater than the original £30.
Some retails which have upgraded their terminals include Waitrose, Pizza express and Nando’s. Jennifer Bailey, head of Apple Pay, told The Telegraph that Apple Pay transactions in the Uk have already grown 300 percent in the last year with 23 banks now supporting the service.
