Hi everyone! We just wanted to give you an update on where we are right now with Apple Pay and current accounts.
You'll all be happy to know that we’re working on it! Our debit cards are Visa, so we need to put in place different technology for current accounts to support Apple Pay. We can’t commit to a specific date yet, but rest assured we want to make banking easier for you, and we will let you know here soon in Community once the plans are more final.
I hope that helps, and we can't wait to get you all set up on your iPhones and Apple Watches (or am I the only person still using one?!)
Do you need some help?

I'm sorry @chaddman30, I don’t have an update for you as of yet. As soon as I find out more information about this I'll let you and the members of this community know.

Thank you for the news !

Hi , all our current account cards are contactless as standard. A lot of our new credit cards are contactless too! :-)
21-06-17, 13:51chaddman30Re: Contactless and Apple Pay
Just out of interest my Debit Card is one where the transaction needs to be authorised online at time of payment. As some contactless terminals i.e. TfL complete their authorisations 'offline' would that impact on functionality at all? Thank you.

The type of card you have shouldn't have any impact on contactless payments as they can take a maximum of 7 days to show on your account. It will, however, affect your available balance when the retailer make us aware that they're taking funds for the contactless transaction. At any point over the 7 days the funds can be deducted from your available balance, which is totally up to the retailer. I hope this helps!

Thank you Ashleigh.

What is the limit for contactless cards?
28-03-20, 14:3125HRe: Contactless and Apple Pay
Hi Pegerton, The current monetary limit for contactless is £30 per transaction, however this will increase to £45 on Wednesday 1st April.There is no limit to the amount of contactless payments you can make in a single day but there is a caveat to this meaning your bank may intervene.
20-05-20, 21:56heanor_man_34Re: Contactless and Apple Pay
I'm led to believe you are able to make five contactless transactions in succession before you are required to enter your card and confirm your PIN-I believe this is down to the recent EU regulations that have been brought in surrounding making payments much safer e.g. text message verification when shopping online.
21-05-20, 05:4925HRe: Contactless and Apple Pay
Morning There is no daily cap on the number of individual transactions you can make (each up to £45), but occasionally, as an extra security measure, you’ll be asked to enter your PIN to verify you are the account holder.This is to double-check that it's you who's in possession of your card.
