bPay and Topshop are delighted to announce that the second collection for Topshop X bPay - a range of Topshop-designed accessories that incorporate the bPay contactless payment technology – is now available.
The collection comprises; bracelets, smartphone cases and key chains in a luxe metal and snake effect design, all created to discreetly hold the small bPay by Barclaycard contactless chip, which links to a secure digital wallet, enabling customers to shop with style and ease wherever they see the contactless symbol. The range is available in selected Topshop stores and online at topshop.com.
Launched by Barclaycard in 2014, bPay is available to anyone with a UK-registered Visa or MasterCard, debit or credit card, not just Barclaycard and Barclays customers. Users conveniently 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.
Safer than carrying cash and just as secure as any credit and debit card, all payments come with the same fraud protection that is applied to contactless cards. If lost or stolen, users can remotely shut down their contactless accessory via the bPay mobile app or bPay website.
Tami Hargreaves, Commercial Director, Digital Consumer Payments at Barclaycard said:
“Following the success of the first Topshop x bPay collection, we are delighted to announce that the new ‘premium’ range is now available in store and online. bPay was the first payment wearable in the UK when it launched two years ago and this new range is an exciting new evolution in its journey, giving consumers more choice over the styles and devices that they can use to make paying both easier and more personalised.
“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.”
