Orange and Barclaycard launch UK’s first contactless mobile payments service

Announced back in late January, Orange and Barclaycard launched UK’s first contactless mobile payments service on Friday.

Called ‘Quick Tap’, the UK’s first contactless mobile payment service allows consumers to make purchases on the high street using their ‘Quick Tap’ enabled handset. Launching with a Quick Tap enabled version of one of Orange’s best-selling devices, the Samsung Tocco Lite, the Samsung Tocco Quick Tap will be available on pay as you go and pay monthly price plans, with more handsets expected to follow from a selection of leading manufacturers.

Pippa Dunn, Orange Vice President, said:

“We no longer use our mobile phones simply for talking and texting – apps, cameras and music players allow us to use them for a lot more. So, making contactless payments with your mobile is a natural and really exciting innovation which we’re pleased to be leading on in the UK. Orange Quick Tap is the first of its kind, a service that allows you to pay for everyday items just by tapping your phone wherever you see the contactless payment symbol. It’s going to start a revolution in the way we pay for things on the high street.”
