What are contactless payments?

Contactless payments allow you to make fast and secure payments in seconds. Simply touch your Barclaycard on a payment reader at thousands of retailers across the UK and you've paid, just like that! You don't need to fumble with cash, or enter a PIN and what's more it's ready to use today.

You can make contactless payments with retailers who display the Contactless symbol contactless_symbol in store or on the payment terminal. To find a contactless retailer click here.

There is no daily limit on contactless payments within the UK, however there is a limit of £30 per transaction and you need to have sufficient funds on your account to cover the cost of your purchase. If you are a Barclaycard MasterCard customer your limit is £20 per transaction.
