Barclaycard Loop adds NFC payments to any wearable device

Finextra

Barclaycard is expanding its bPay contactless payments range through the introduction of a small case that can be attached to watches and fitness bands. The bPay Loop is a silicon case containing an NFC chip that can be slid onto the strap of watches and fitness bands with open buckles.

Launched 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 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.
