If your a Barclay’s customer’s, then I’d say your a pretty lucky customer. If your wondering why then here’s why. From now on when you need to buy stuff under 10 pounds all you have to do it touch your card to a reader and walk away. It’s like the oyster card but only this time your in a coffee shop and standing a long queue with angry customers behind you. Don’t have wait and look for change or wait your chip and pin card accept your payment, touch and walk away.
How will this change our attitude towards shopping. For anything under 10 pounds, it going to begin to look cheap and you might end up with hundreds and hundreds of 10 pound bills on the floor of your house and hair on fire. Yup, since its so easy to do it, people will tend to touch their card for every small expense and for every small unnecessary thing that will keep adding up to an enormous bill that were not keeping track of. But don’t you worry you needn’t bother if your a shop-o-holic.But talking about it more optimistically, it saves precious seconds for those stock brokers who need to rush up to the market or for those who run on tight schedules. This card is already successfully being used across a 1000 shops in London. Coffee shops especially find the technology a relieve as it helps eliminating frustration that their early morning customers have. It will support services in London to grow faster. Well to be honest, everyone is going have one, not only Barclay’s, and soon people are going to find even this technology slow and will later on demand something faster. I don’t know what better technology can you come up with, think and buy maybe?
Here it is, future of quicky shopping, like or not (I’m sure you do) that’s they future of your plastic money, quick and efficient. Think about it, grab a sandwich and coffee, touch the card and catch your bus on time. PERFECT
