LONDON, Nov 25 (Reuters) - The volume of Black Friday payment transactions in Britain as of 1700 GMT was up 3.2% compared to 2021, data from Barclaycard Payments showed on Friday.
Barclaycard Payments processes nearly 1 pound ($1.21) in every 3 pounds spent on credit and debit cards in the UK.
"This is encouraging news for retailers who will have been unsure about the outcome of today, given the rising cost-of-living," its head, Marc Pettican, said.
