In this segment, Jason talks through the latest in Contactless Payments.
You can hear directly from Jason in the video above or have a read below:
EMV CONTACTLESS LIMITS
An earlier Covid development was supporting the increased limits for using contactless EMV cards which was increased from £30 to £45, and which we delivered in time for the change to take effect on the 1st of April 2020 even though we only had a couple of weeks’ notice that the change was coming.
APPLE PAY EXPRESS
That wasn’t our only contactless EMV change in 2020. We also worked with Apple to support Apple Pay Express for both tap transactions and retail transactions, thereby removing the need for passengers to unlock their phones with Face ID when using this method of payment on bus. Avoiding using Face ID to unlock the phone also meant that passengers didn’t need to remove their face masks when paying this way. We had no idea when we started to engage with Apple on this that this would be the primary driver for this feature!
