Canadians quickly adjust to higher tap limits with American Express, Visa and Mastercard
Insights & Trends, dota2直播手机版 Go


April 23, 2020 Calculating time...

Many Canadians are looking for ways to reduce physical interactions and touching shared surfaces like payment terminals. We know how important it is to ensure frictionless payments while also minimizing touch points. So we worked diligently with our card brand partners at American Express ® , Visa ® and Mastercard ® to increase the credit card tap limit to $250 as of April 8, 2020. 1

Contactless payments help protect customers and staff

Less physical interaction with payment terminals is just one way of safely doing business during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve already enabled more than 50,000 merchant terminals to accept the increased card contactless limit of $250. Our monitoring of select retail locations shows almost 40% of transactions between the old $100 limit and the new limit of $250 are using tap – that’s about the same as the usual contactless rate for transactions under $100! 2
