Boots rolls out contactless payment technology across all UK stores

Boots has announced that its customers can now pay for goods using their contactless cards in all of its UK stores.

Working with Visa Europe and Worldpay, the retailer has recently completed the roll out of contactless terminals across its entire store network.

Nigel Shortt, head of delivery – retail at Boots UK, said: “At Boots UK, we are continually looking for new ways to offer our customers great shopping experiences. Contactless payment saves time for both our customers and staff during peak trading periods by speeding up traditional card payment and reducing transaction and queue times.

“The initial stages of our roll out demonstrated that consumers enjoy the benefits of contactless payments and we are delighted that this is now possible in all Boots UK stores.”

According to figures from Visa Europe, UK consumers made over eight million contactless purchases in August 2013 with an average spend value of £6.55. Growth in use of the cards has been driven by consumers becoming increasingly comfortable with using contactless technology, supported by a 23% increase year-on-year in the number of contactless cards and a 135% increase in the number of contactless terminals, the company said.
