Barclays mobile payments app Pingit launches online shop

Barclays’ mobile payments business, Pingit, has launched an online platform for the sale of wearable tech.

In Brief:

  • Customers will be able to access wearable gadgets to use for payments via Pingit.

  • Wearables can be used across a range of bank accounts.

  • The company will work with brands like Hugo Boss to improve its range of accessories.

What does this mean?

Around one in five adults currently wears a smartwatch or fitness band and the wearable technology market only stands to grow – Barclays has chosen to merge these technology pieces with its current payment app so customers don’t need to do anything to be able to pay via a bracelet, key fob or watch.
