Number of contactless transactions in the United Kingdom (UK) 2016-2018, by type This statistic shows the number of contactless payment transactions that are made in the United Kingdom every month from June 2016 to December 2018. In December 2018 there were a total 691 million contactless transactions made, the vast majority of which were made with a debit card (590 million as to 101 million made using a credit/charge card). This is a large difference when compared to June 2016 which saw a total of approximately 219 million contactless transactions, 192 million of which were made with a debit card transaction as to 27 million with a credit/charge card. The rise in contactless card transactions has been mirrored by the number of in-store bank owned terminals as well as the number of contactless debit and credit cards distributed to bank customers.
