Should the contactless spending limit be increased?MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk

Two in five debit card payments were made using contactless last year. Yet at the moment, the maximum amount you can spend using contactless is just 30 (barring some using Apple Pay), which is done to cap spending if someone takes your card.

While of course it'd be nice if limits could be personalised, if not, where would you say it should be set?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
