Basic RGBContactless cards are just more than a year in Baltics, but the number of contactless payments is steadily growing every month. To encourage customers make purchases faster and more convenient, the contactless payment limit is increased up to 25 €.
The new limit will be applicable for all MasterCard contactless cards in Lithuania and Estonia. For VISA contactless cards the current limit of 10 € will remain in effect. Customers with MasterCard contactless cards will have possibility to pay for purchases up to 25 € without entering the PIN code from October 13th and in some point of sales already starting from October 6th.
While paying for higher value purchases, or in order to ensure additional card security requirements, payments shall be confirmed, as usual, by entering PIN code.
