I’d looked at Kerv (a contactless payment ring) a few months ago, but decided to take the plunge recently and get one, which arrived today.
For those who don’t know about Kerv, it’s a ring that uses the same technology as contactless cards, so no charging, needed. It is effectively a pre-paid Mastercard but in a ring, so you top it up via debit/credit card or bank transfer, and then use it for contactless payments up to £30 per transaction.
I’ve linked it to my Starling account and made the initial topup, which went without a hitch. I’ve yet to try it out with a payment but I’ll use it over the next few days and provide an update on the experience. I will of course lose the individual transaction data for anything I spend using Kerv, but who know, perhaps Kerv will integrate with Starling at some point?
