Barclaycard and Orange are closing the QUick Tap service

According to Barclaycard, the company will now focus on developing other services related to mobile NFC. Having launched contactless PayTag stickers which can be attached to handsets, Barclaycard also recently launched its bPay contactless wristband.

In 2013, Orange owner EE launched a similar service to Quick Tap known as Cash on Tap in conjunction with MasterCard. Cash on Tap users in the UK will be able to pay for tube, DLR and overground services with their handsets later this month.
