Barclays this month marks the fourth anniversary of contactless technology in the UK.

A total of 16.2 million contactless cards are now in circulation in the country, of which 13.5 million are issued by Barclays. The figure means one in eight cardholders now has a contactless card.

Underlining their growing popularity, Barclaycard processed 1.4 million contactless transactions in the first half of this year, compared to 1.5 million for the whole of 2010.

There are now 66,500 contactless terminals, with over 60,700 issued by Barclaycard.

Barclaycard launched the UK’s first contactless card in 2007.
