Half of the UKs debit card payments are processed with contactless,
The revolutionary trend has recently crossed a massive milestone in which almost 50% of all debit card payments in July 2019 were done with contactless debit cards, meaning a 17.8% increase on top of the previous year.*
These statistics highlight the rising popularity of contactless payments and how the UK is becoming more and more dependent on the service.
It’s becoming increasingly important for any business to be able to process contactless card payments on a day-to-day basis, especially as a small and local business.
Over the past few years Yorkshire Payments has provided over 2500 small businesses all over Yorkshire with terminals that allow for contactless transactions over the past five years meaning a huge number of small businesses in Yorkshire are now able to take contactless card payments.
