Calling payment industry experts for help, as I am at a loss here.
Overseas cardholders from several countries can do “tap & PIN” in the UK to make payment transactions above the contactless floor limit.
I can do “tap & PIN” in some EU countries with my UK-issued contactless bank card to make a payment above the contactless floor limit.
But I cannot do “tap & PIN” with my card in the UK.
What is happening there?.. Who is calling the shots: issuer, card network, POS OEM or Donald Trump?
Please tell me it the latter! :)
