The payments marketplace is dominated by payment solutions, adding convenience to your daily online and offline payments. While most of them are fairly ordinary, we believe there is a safer and much more rewarding way to manage your money. That’s why we have developed some of the world’s most unique contactless payment devices, making your daily payments easier and more secure with a twist of unrivaled style.
The MuchBetter contactless payment key fob* is the perfect accessory to bring you added safety and convenience. Attach it to your keys and leave your wallet at home. The key fob enables you to make contactless payments safe and secure; in the same way as your bank card.
MuchBetter’s contactless payment cards and key fobs are supported by Mastercard®, which means they function exactly like any other Mastercard® payment device. Use them to make payments all over the world, anywhere that displays Mastercard® or contactless payment symbol.
*Available to customers in the EEA only. The key fob charges a one-off fee of £10 and can be ordered in the app.
In 2020, we went even further to develop a partnership with the Swiss based craftsmen STISS, to propose you a smart payment functionality inside sapphire glass.
STISS is the first company to seal a payment chip (EMV) and antenna within a glass watch face – the kind of technology jump you may expect from a Q-made James Bond watch. It can be used at millions of locations worldwide where Mastercard® or contactless is accepted. With its smart technology integrated in the glass, there is no emission of electromagnetic waves and thus needs no charging, This unique functionality is integrated in many beautiful and traditional watch brands. Pair this timeless design with your MuchBetter e-wallet in just seconds.
In 2019, MuchBetter partnered with Cambridge-based high-tech fashion start-up, DressCode, to launch the world’s first contactless payment smart shirt. The CashCuff enables contactless payments from the cuff with no extra device required. With a CashCuff shirt from DressCode, customers have one less thing to worry about. Money available on-demand, no wallet…no phone…no problem. It’s perfect for going about your day, safe in the knowledge that you have cash on hand whenever you need it.
The contactless payment module within the shirt is controlled via the MuchBetter app. This simple user interface allows you to allocate specific amounts of money to the virtual card, monitor the usage and switch the chip on/off at will.
Dresscode CEO, Andy Boothman said: “We designed CashCuff for the fashion-conscious high-tech lover, it’s hidden away out of sight, but always there when you want it.”
CashCuff has been featured in The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, Metro and The Industry fashion
In 2017, MuchBetter partnered with GPS (an emerging payment issuer processor) & DIGISEQ (NFC provisioning company) to support Lucozade Energy in producing a revolutionary paytech bottle that was distributed free at major London train stations and commuter hot-spots. Each special bottle included a contactless payment chip pre-loaded with a credit to pay for one journey on the London Underground.
Team GB gymnast Nile Wilson, Britain’s Got Talent finalists Twist and Pulse and ballet star Alessia Lugoboni all featured in the ad campaign which urged London commuters to ‘Find your flow’ with a free journey using the Lucozade bottles for contactless payment.
