Contactless donations 79% of payments by 2026

Payments UK thinks cash payments will halve from 40% of all payments made in 2016 to 21% by 2026.

Barclaycard believes that charities will miss out on an estimated £80m if they don’t take up contactless payments.

Simon Black, CEO of epayment company the PPRO Group says: “If charities don’t implement alternative payment methods as a priority, they will risk being left behind by organisations who do. Retailers have acted swiftly to introduce contactless payments, it is now time for charities to do the same.”
