You will need to use use your PIN for your first transaction before contactless is enabled on your card.

From time to time you'll also need to make a purchase using your PIN in order to verify that it's you before you are able to use contactless again.

This is part of a new EU regulation put in place to help protect consumer's finances from fraudsters.

If you do reach your contactless transaction limit, make your next in-store purchase using your PIN to re-activate the contactless function of the card.
