Droplet Launches in London with Chiltern and Airpark

On Monday, we ran a spotlight piece on a new kind of mobile payments solution, Droplet.

After a pilot in Birmingham, the company officially launched in London with Chiltern Railways and Airparks. People who have downloaded the app will now be able to make free, cardless mobile payments across the companies networks of trains and airport parking locations.

They are the first national retailers to back the platform, which works with a unique merchant QR code or GPS when the user wants to make a payment. The pilot focused on independent shops and the company managed to get 60 retailers on board. They are now in talks with a number of high street chains.
