Barclaycard has announced its intention to increase the use of its OnePulse contactless payment cards. The firm said that it will have issued over one million of the cards by the end of this year, and will have a network of thousands of retailers accepting payments.
OnePulse cards can be used to make payments without being removed from a wallet or purse. The system was launched by Barclays, along with Transport for London (TfL) and Transys, in September 2007 as a three-in-one card offering small value, travel and credit transactions. Although the cards can handle payment through a handswipe, credit transactions for larger amounts are backed up with a Pin.
