Pay For Coffee Using Wireless Cards

This latest article in Business Week reveals that customers at Coffee Republic will be able to pay up to £10 worth of goods by simply touching their Barclayscards to a reader.

Coffee Republic and Barclays have teamed up for a One Touch System in which customers can touch their Barclayscards to a reader avoiding the need to sign for the transaction or to enter a PIN number. The main advantage to the One Touch System is that it has decreased the time taken per transaction, thus it has sped up service significantly, especially during peak retail hours. No signs of fraudulent activity have been reported yet, and more than 4,000 retail outlets have already gone live with the One Touch System.
