Barclaycard is adding a touch of bling to contactless payments, teaming up with high street fashion retailer Topshop on a range of NFC-enabled bracelets, phone cases and keychains.
The second Topshop x bPay collection consists of accessories in a luxe metal and snake effect design, that each hold the small bPay by Barclaycard contactless chip, which links to a secure digital wallet.
Tami Hargreaves, commercial director, digital consumer payments, Barclaycard, says: "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, for everyday things - be it a morning coffee, a new lipstick or a bus trip across town."
Launched by in 2014 - initially as a wristband - bPay is available to anyone with a UK-registered Visa or MasterCard, debit or credit card, not just Barclaycard and Barclays customers.
Users add funds to their digital wallet on-the-go using a mobile app, online through the bPay web portal, or set up an automatic top-up which adds funds when their balance falls below a pre-set level.
