I’m pleased to announce that I have partnered with bPay by Barclaycard to put the new wristband through its paces! Whilst wearable technology is in full swing this season, bPay takes contactless payment technology and transforms it into a brand new way for everyone to pay and move easily through everyday life. The bPay wristband has been designed for everyone’s convenience, comfort and security and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the devices this week! It’s really ideal for making quick daily payments – allowing you to leave your cards and cash at home.
After spending a few minutes activating the device in the evening at bPay.co.uk I was ready to touch, pay and go. On my usual morning run to Starbucks I gave my bPay wristband a go and literally in a fraction of a second payment was done! Much quicker than getting the right change or entering my PIN. Since then I’ve been actively on the lookout for opportunities to pay contactlessly throughout the day, from my lunch at Pret a Manger to my tube ride back home. Easy, convenient, secure and quick is how I’d describe the experience. At the moment the digital wallet (is linked to one of three new devices – wristband, sticker – as seen above and fob) can be used to make contactless transactions of £20 or under at over 300,000 locations across the UK. A simple, hassle free way to get your morning coffee on your way to work and secure payments when you’re out. You are able to buy these stylish yet functional devices online at bPay.co.uk
