Where to use contactless payment in the UK

I wrote a brief post based on a BBC News article on the recently announced tie-up between Orange and Barclaycard who together are bringing mobile contactless payments to the UK http://bit.ly/laHs9O

There are claims that 50,000 shops now support this technology in the UK according to the Sunday Times InGear magazine.


Here are some of the businesses accepting contactless payment:

Boots – 21 stores

Caffe Nero – Over 400 branches

Crussh – 24 London branches

Eat – 100 branches

Krispy Kreme – 50 branches

Little Chef – 162 restaurants

McDonald’s – 1200 branches

National Trust – 350 locations

Pret A Manger – 220 branches

Subway – over 1400 branches

There are also selected IKEA stores and Yo! Sushi restaurants and many more independent businesses.
