Contactless Increase Terminal Update

In light of the increase in contactless card payments as a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) we are instructing you to update your terminal to increase the limit on contactless transactions from £30 up to £45. Simply follow the step by step process below to update your terminal – normally this will take less than 5 minutes but there is the possibility it could take up to 40 minutes so please be patient.
