Amid the Coronavirus outbreak, the contactless payment limit has now been increased to £45 from £30 in a bid to help struggling retailers.

Shops will begin rolling this out from today (1st April 2020) although this will be a gradual process as hundreds of thousands of payment machines will need to be updated.

The British Retail Consortium and UK Finance hope this change will give a much-needed boost to retailers as it is easier for customers to shop.

This will reduce the number of occasions where customers will need to input their pin, speeding up checkouts and making shopping safer during the current outbreak.
