Costa Coffee Uses Barclays’ Wearable Chip Technology In Its “Clever Cup”

November 28, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Retail coffee chain Costa Coffee is launching the U.K.'s first reusable coffee cup equipped with contactless payment technology. The “Clever Cup,” launched in partnerhip with Barclaycard, will be available in Costa Coffee stores as part of a relaunch of Costa's reusable range to encourage customers to avoid single-use takeaway cups. The new cup is powered by Barclaycard's bPay technology, a contactless payment technology that tracks user spending using the dedicated bPay app or online. The contactless element is detachable for ease of washing. According to Barclays, its wearable chip technology allows almost any accessory to be transformed into a smart payment device.
