Do I have a daily limit for contactless payments?

There isn’t a daily limit for contactless payments, however from time to time, when you shop using contactless payments, you’ll need to put your card into the machine and enter your PIN to verify it’s you before you can use contactless again. This is part of a new EU regulation to help prevent fraud.

To get up and running with contactless you’ll need to pay with your PIN the first time you use your new card in a shop, just so we know it’s you. There’s a limit of £45 per payment and you’ll need to have enough money in your account to cover the cost of your purchase.
