ALMOST €600 MILLION was spent by consumers using contactless payments in Ireland in May – the highest monthly total to date in 2020.

Many people have made the switch to contactless payments, or increased how often they use them, during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The contactless limit was increased to €50 in April in response to the crisis.

On average consumers made €19.3 million worth of contactless payments per day during May, up 7% on figures in February – before Covid-19 hit, according to figures from Banking and Payments Federation Ireland.

Most days (9058)
At least once a week (2416)
