Money sharing app Pingit launches online platform

Pingit, part of the Barclays portfolio, has launched a dedicated e-store on which brings together a wide range of its payment devices in one location.

This will provide consumers with a convenient one-stop-shop to browse and buy a large selection of wearable payment accessories, enabling them to pay easily and securely, no matter who they bank with.

Customers will be able to purchase Pingit’s newly-released range of fashion and lifestyle accessories embedded with payment capabilities, from key fobs to wearable payment bands to the Loop.

The company stated in a press release that over the next few months, customers will be able to buy a wide range of partner products including key fobs, leather bracelets and watches from well-known fashion brands such as Timex, Guess, Hugo Boss and Tovi Sorga.
