Everything Everywhere and Barclaycard Team Up for Mobile Payments

Everything Everywhere and Barclaycard have teamed up on the first contactless mobile phone payment solution for UK consumers, which will launch by early summer. The move will usher in a new era for consumers, offering greater simplicity, convenience and control and will change the way payments are made on UK high streets.

Working with the world’s leading handset manufacturers, the new offering from Orange and Barclaycard will enable customers to use their mobiles to pay for goods and services at more than 40,000 retailers that use contactless technology, by simply waving their mobile phone against a contactless reader.

Gerry McQuade, chief development officer, Everything Everywhere, said: “This is the beginning of a revolution in how we pay for things on the high street. We’re making something that’s been talked about for many years a reality and, very soon, using your mobile to buy a sandwich, a cinema ticket or, in time, even something bigger like a computer will simply be the norm.”
