Wireless payments scale new heights on Ben Nevis charity climb

17 July 2009  |  5797 views  |  0 Wireless payments scale new heights on Ben Nevis charity climb

Participants in a charity climb of Ben Nevis made what they claim is the highest land-based payment transaction in the UK from atop the country's tallest mountain.

Payments vendor VeriFone made the wireless debit card transaction using its Vx 670 GPRS terminal during a fundraising climb organised by Lloyd's TSB Cardnet to benefit SportsAid.

A group of 30 climbers from Cardnet and various vendors and suppliers raised over £5000 for the charity, which focuses on providing grants to youngsters from 50 able-bodied and 25 disability sports.
