Payment chip in Costa’s coffee cup allows contactless payments without your card...
Forgotten your payment card? No problem. As long as you’ve remembered your Costa Clever Cup, you can still refill with flat white and pay using the cup itself. The Clever Cup incorporates a Barclaycard bPay chip which allows customers to buy coffee contactless – and not just in Costa, but anywhere that accepts contactless payments.
Selling for £14.99 ($19.15), £1 from every sale goes to the Costa Foundation for youth education. It’s a great example of fintech innovation that aims to introduce new payment tools to align with specific consumer moments – in this case, the coffee break.
