Fast food chain McDonald’s is to roll out contactless card payment at its UK restaurants by this summer. Developed with Visa Europe, customers at the chain’s 1,200 UK outlets will be able to pay by touching their enabled card against a wireless reader, speeding up service. The partners claim contactless payment saves time and effort, allowing customers to quickly pay for items that cost £15 or under without having to search around for cash. In the US Starbucks this week announced that it would be introducing smartphone payment at its almost 6,800 managed stores.
