This new innovation will allow user to pay for items with their car key instead of them going all around with their wallet, debit or credit card.
The hi-tech car keys are currently only available with DS Automobiles, which are owned by Citroen, but are expected to be adopted by other car makers if they are successful.
The 2-in-1 device is the first of its kind and uses a payment chip which uses Radio-Frequency IDentification technology, to turn the car key into a convenient way to pay.
Tami Hargreaves, director of innovation and partnerships at Barclaycard mobile payments, said: “At Barclaycard, we are constantly looking for ways to innovate from trialing contactless beer pumps, to piloting a contactless ice-cream van that allows customers to pay, and serve themselves an ice-cream in less than 60 seconds.
“Similarly, just this week, we launched the UK’s first contactless payment key card with DS Automobiles. This 2 – in – 1 device is the first of its kind in production and integrates our bPay payment chip with an existing DS car key to offer drivers a fast, easy and secure way to make contactless purchases with just a touch of their car keys.”
