Singapore’s United Overseas Bank (UOB) will lift the S$100 (US$73) contactless transaction limit for NFC mobile payments at all of its point-of-sale terminals by the end of next year. “The limit has been removed at 2,000 of its 10,000 terminals so far,” UOB says. “With the removal of the limit, mobile contactless payments made at UOB terminals through Apple Pay or UOB Mighty Pay for Android phones will have no limit other than the customer’s own credit or debit card limit.” The bank launched its host card emulation (HCE) based UOB Mighty Pay service in November 2015.
