CASH CARDS: Quiz players can tap or scan special plastic cards to donate to the British Legion

The Royal British Legion is distributing contactless cards at charity events in the UK which participants can scan with an NFC phone to be automatically directed to a website where they can make a donation using either Paypal or a bank card.

The cards, which are passed around at specially organised fundraising pub quizzes, also carry a QR code so that users without NFC can scan them. Each quiz has its own web page, where a live total of the amount raised at that event can be seen.

The contactless cards and underlying platform have been supplied by Norwich-based Thyngs, a startup specialising in mobile engagement and headed by NFC marketing veteran Neil Garner.

All donations made using the NFC cards are paid directly to The Royal British Legion, Thyngs says, “reducing administration costs, and simplifying the supporter experience.”

UK consumers can make a donation to The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal by tapping their contactless card or NFC device against contactless donation tins in 13 branches of UK bank Natwest. The tins are being trialled in collaboration with Worldpay and Thyngs. “One tin, developed by Worldpay, doubles up as a contactless terminal charging £2 (US$2.48) per tap,” Worldpay says. “Another will feature Thyngs Styckers which uses mobile phone technology to instantly direct mobile users to a dedicated donation page.” Mobile donations are currently being trialled, with contactless card donations set to be piloted next week.
