Barclaycard and TopShop launch contactless payment fashion range

Leading card provider Barclaycard and UK high street retailer, TopShop have worked together to develop a range of wearable accessories incorporating Barclaycard’s  bPay contactless technology.
The TOPSHOP x bPay collection includes wristbands, smartphone cases, stickers and key chains. All have been created to discreetly hold the small bPay contactless chip. The chip links to a secure digital wallet, enabling customers to shop with a tap at 300,000 locations across the UK. 

Users can add funds to their digital wallet on-the-go using a mobile app, online through the bPay web portal, or via an automatic top-up which adds funds when their balance falls below a pre-set level.
The partnership launches Barclays bPay technology decisively into mainstream high street shopping.

Tami Hargreaves, commercial director of  digital consumer payments at Barclaycard stated: “The collaboration shows how the worlds of fashion and technology can combine to create a stylish and easy new way for people to pay using contactless”
This is not,  however, the first fashionable collaboration for Bpay as earlier this year Scottish knitwear brand Lyle & Scott introduced a £150 'contactless jacket' that comes complete with a buttoned-down pouch for Barclays' BPay wristbands.
