Topshop teams up with bPay for contactless accessories
A futuristic new accessories range from Topshop will allow users to pay for goods using wristbands, stickers, smartphone cases and key chains.
Topshop teamed up with Barclaycard to create the items, which all contain a small bPay contactless chip linked to a secure digital wallet. It lets customers shop anywhere they see the contactless symbol and is available to anyone with a UK-registered Visa debit or credit card, not just Barclaycard and Barclays customers.
The first accessories collection features a bold monster fish print and will be available in selected Topshop stores and online at Topshop.com from 17th November 2015. Later this year, Topshop and bPay are also launching a luxe metal and snake effect design.
Tami Hargreaves, Commercial Director, Digital Consumer Payments at Barclaycard, said: “This is a really exciting partnership with Topshop and marks the first time that our bPay chip is being incorporated into a product range from a major fashion retailer.
“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.”
