ecdp team up with Barclays to trial new bPay band

This month ecdp have been selected by Barclays to trial a new method of contactless payment, bPay wrist bands.

Barclays believe that the product has great potential opportunities for people with disabilities or accessibility needs, and want to get feedback before they are fully launched.

What is bPay?

• It is a pre-paid account that links to a bPay band.

• Simply add money from any Visa or MasterCard® debit or credit card onto the bPay band.

• Then make fast, secure contactless payments of up to £20 wherever you see the contactless symbol.

Touch and go with bPay

The bands can be used anywhere which takes contactless cards.

Whether buying a coffee, or travelling on the London Transport network.

There is no need to delve in your bag for your cash or card, the aim is to just tap your wrist and go!

ecdp will trial the bPay bands for one month and will keep you informed on how we get on.
