CashCuff® - The World's First Smart Payment Shirt
What is it?
We design and make shirts, a celebration of the technology around us, with useful technology integrated into every shirt. CashCuff uses contactless payment technology via an NFC chip, putting your cash on your cuff, allowing you to buy goods and services directly with your shirt – no phone or wallet required.
The security of our products is just as important as the way they look and feel. There are no compromises, we work with the best of the best, using technology from some of the biggest names in fintech - Digiseq and MuchBetter.
Your CashCuff cannot be skimmed and should you lose the chip it can be deactivated in seconds. In the unlikely event that someone did manage to use your CashCuff without your knowledge, our pre-pay configuration allows you to control the funds available, minimising financial exposure and increasing your security.
Every aspect of our shirts is carefully considered, from the materials and craftspeople who make our shirts to the technology and its ability to deliver a first class service. Our goal is simple, to design and produce the best, and most effective products possible.
The way we pay for goods has changed a lot in recent years. Contactless payments were first introduced in 2007 and in 2020 the transaction limit was raised to £45 before further rising to £100 early in 2021.
Natural to wear with an organic user experience (UX). CashCuff is a wearable product and we believe that the clothes we wear can deliver much more functionality. It’s exciting, we are creating human-centred user experiences from our clothes and believe that the clothes we wear will become as ‘smart’ as mobile and cell technology.
Wait, what? You're paying with your shirt? asks a wide-eyed barman as I swipe my cuff over his contactless card machine.
Everyone can relate to doing that dance of digging around for your wallet or purse when your hands are full, which explains why contactless payments are so popular. Taking cashless convenience up a notch is this collection of tailored smart shirts from start-up DressCode.
The CashCuff is one of the newest examples of modern fashion-tech, a marriage of the simplicity of contactless payment with shirt tailoring.
The materials we use for clothing offer immense possibilities for greater functionality whilst respecting our environment. Not only will our clothes make you feel good, they will also make you healthier, happier and more productive.
What tech is involved?
Can I switch it off?
Yes, via the MuchBetter® platform, the CashCuff® can be switched off in seconds, rendering it completely useless. It can then be reactivated just as quickly, using MuchBetter®.
What about washing and ironing the shirt?
In the same way you wouldn’t wash your credit card and expect that to keep working, the CashCuff® is removable. We believe this creates a more convenient solution for our customers – allowing them move the CashCuff® chip from shirt to shirt.
Can I Iron it?
Just as you would remove collar stays or cufflinks from your shirt to iron it, you remove your CashCuff® chip to iron the shirt.
Is the CashCuff® a ‘wearable’?
The CashCuff® could be described as passive wearable technology, in the form of smart clothing, using EMV waves from POS terminals for power generation. We prefer to describe the CashCuff® as smart clothing, offering technology within the construction of the garment without the need for external devices or controls.
Working with two globally recognised financial technology (fintech) companies ensures that CashCuff® cannot be skimmed, should the customer loose the chip it can be deactivated in seconds, in the unlikely event that someone did manage to use your CashCuff® without your knowledge, because it is a pre-pay system that you control, the financial exposure to you and your money is contained.
The CashCuff has coverage throughout Europe, we're hopeful of extended coverage into the USA next year and global coverage soon after that, email us to check the coverage in your country.
Your CashCuff account is FREE for 24 months. There will be a small monthly subscription cost to facilitate the continued use of the accounts and services. We will write to you ahead of time explaining the options.
