If there is a Contactless symbol located on the front of your card, then your card is enabled for Contactless payments.
Contactless and Mobile Payments - Make easy and secure payments in seconds
For debit and credit cards with the contactless symbol, the contactless limit has increased from £45 to £100 from 15 October 2021. Please be aware that some retailers may take some time to make the required changes to their card machines. Simply touch and pay for items that cost £100 or less with your card. Every now and then we’ll ask you to insert your card and do a Chip and PIN transaction instead as an extra security check.
