Should the contactless card spending limit be increased?MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk
Two in five card payments are now made using contactless up 31% in 2018. Yet 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.

What would you like the limit per transaction to be?

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.
