01.12.2015. UK Card Expenditure Statistics: November 2015.
The value of the average contactless transaction increased in Septembers a result of the increase in the contactless payment limit, the latest figures from The UK Cards Association show.
In September, the average contactless transaction was £7.35, up by 23p on the August figure. This coincided with the rollout of the new £30 contactless payment limit. Contactless payments accounted for 8.9 per cent of the total number of card purchases in September and the rise in transaction value reflects the further migration of low-value purchases from cash to card.
Total spending has increased year-on-year from £48.5 billion to £52.7 billion. There were 1.1 billion transactions.
