    Is there any difference in how quickly either of the above payment methods would be debited from my account??
  2. Both will be taken from your available balance immediately.
  3. not really ..both instant transactions although may take a few hours to show up on your account

    Depending on the vendor, some contactless payments don't come off my available balance for a day or 2.

    Yep, contactless sometimes takes a while longer, depending on how the vendor handles the transaction.

    Saying that, it can be the same (not as often) for chip n pin (i.e. asda petrol stations)

    It's a pity your keyboard isn't contactless.

    Contactless is the way forward. Love using my card to pay for Despies in Spoons (nee lime thanks mate) whilst the John Smiths suppers sit there with their pockets jangling with all their grubby coins, enviously looking at my beer and casual disregard for fruit.

    Contactless never shows up on my account until about 2/3 days later, chip and pin is immediate (or near enough).

    Use contactless for everything nowadays, can't even remember the last time I used cash or chose to pay by putting my card into the machine.

    You must occasionally need to pay over 30 quid for something?
