Tap and go payments technology appears to have successfully established itself in the collective British psyche over the last year, with 84% of people now able to identify the contactless symbol.

its all about communication

As this form of payment (contactless card) is not yet supported by all issuers there is not the awareness needed - but hey - there is no need to be aware of it - unless you have an NFC card to use. Barclays customers will be aware - others not so.... Chip and Pin introduction in the UK was an all bank (therefore well communicated) message that got across to the public - Contactless is slowly being embraced and will eventually get there - in card form... Mobile has its own issues (almost insurmountable  - in my opinion) which include education, platform, security and technology/download and wallet issues to overcome... NFC Cards will get there i am sure - Phones? not soon..
