Combining the surge in wearable technology with the craze of recent years for wearing a charity wristband to proudly show affinity to a cause, a new range of wearable devices will enable users to automatically donate the small change from any contactless payment they make to charities of their choice.
Powered by contactless chips, the wearables can be used to make ‘touch and go’ payments for £30 and under without fumbling for cash or entering a PIN. When a purchase is made, it triggers an automatic donation to the wearer’s chosen charity.
A range of new DTC devices – including bracelets and keyrings – will complement the existing bPay key fobs and loops that attach to watches and fitness bands. Each contains a chip that links to a secure digital wallet and can be used by anyone holding a UK-registered Visa or MasterCard debit or credit card.
Users can keep on top of their spending with real-time balance updates and instant access to their transaction history online in the Donate The Change app.
We’re looking for Snow-Camp supporters to try out the DTC wearbles! This is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of a new movement, where charitable giving is at the heart of everyday spending. We have 250 free wearables to share, to try one out all you have to do is register your interest by clicking HERE.
