The new contactless limit will be rolled out progressively across different banks, different cards and different terminal types. However, some bank cards will not be eligible for this contactless limit increase. The card issuer should inform the customer if this is the case.
If the new limit has been introduced on a customer’s card and on your terminal, the customer won’t need a PIN for purchases up to $200. If the new limit isn’t available, a customer will still be prompted to enter their PIN for purchases of $100 or more. For some contactless purchases made using selected digital wallets (Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay) customers won’t be prompted for a PIN once they have entered their device’s passcode (e.g. Face ID, Touch ID) for the day.
