    You can choose a wristband, fob or sticker, which all work just like a contactless card, so you can pay for anything up to £30.

    You can also use the bPay mobile app with your contactless device. It lets you track your spending and top up your account on the go.

    You can choose your device on the bPay website. If you’d like your bPay welcome pack and chip ID in Braille, large print or audio, please email your full name, phone number and order number to help@bpay.co.uk.
