Why you should use contactless
Paying with your Visa contactless card is quick and easy. Contactless payments are accepted at popular retailers across the UK including McDonalds, M&S, Starbucks, The Co-operative Food, Transport for London and WH Smiths. Over 2m transactions are made every month across the UK.
How contactless works
- If there's a contactless symbol on the front of your Visa card, you can start paying with contactless right away.
- You can make a contactless payment at any retailer that displays the contactless acceptance symbol. Lots of retailers already accept contactless payments, and more are joining all the time.
- Just touch your Visa contactless card to the contactless reader and hold it there until the display confirms your transaction has been successful
- You can pay for anything up to £20. As an extra security measure, you may occasionally be asked to enter your PIN.
