Switch to contactless has gathered pace since cap was raised from £30 to £45 at start of pandemic
Shoppers in the UK will be able to spend up to £100 using contactless card payments from 15 October as the limit on spending is more than doubled.
What on earth is the point in this, other than making it easier for people to spend more and more money without giving it proper thought? I have never been in a situation where I need to spend more than £30 so urgently that I can't spare the 10-20 seconds it takes for chip and PIN to work.
At this point, it's just progress for the sake of progress and at the expense of security.
