Why you don’t need a purse on you anymore

Once upon a time, carrying a purse or a
handbag around with you was compulsory, whether it was for the purpose of an
accessory and fashion statement, or to carry the hundreds of items that you
probably don’t need but you’re going to bring, just in case, on a night out.
But now, you can be perfectly purseless without a worry, whether you’re popping
to the shops, going on a night out or looking to play a quick game of bingo
with the girls. With a growth in technology, e-wallets, touch payments and
contactless has all become a major step in pushing the limits to prove why you
don’t need a purse on you anymore.

Although a purse or handbag may be an
excellent fashion accessory, that can glam up any outfit, they can be big and
heavy objects that you have to worry about leaving unattended or leaving in the
changing room of a shop. E-Wallets have given a whole new meaning to fast
payment particularly when it comes to online. E-Wallets allow you to store
multiple credit card and bank account numbers in a secure place, giving you the
ultimate efficient access to purchasing online. When it comes to online gaming and
bingo too, you don’t necessarily have to enter your card details every time you
want to make a deposit – you can simply login to an e-wallet like PayPal
and start gaming straight away.
 

Another huge advancement in card payments
especially, is touch payment on an iPhone and now,
Android Pay
. Although for the moment this will only work with payments of
up to £30 (the same as a contactless card) there is a huge potential for growth
in this market, further reducing the need to bring a purse with you. Setting up
phone payments is easy and all you have to do is unlock a phone, place it near
a contactless terminal, and if you’re using an iPhone 6+ your fingerprint will
be needed to confirm the payment. Now, you can go out and about with just your
phone, unless you’re planning on spending more than £30 at one time.

On top of being convenient and secure,
major retailers are accepting this form of payment, and many banks have also
been encouraging people to use contactless Apple Pay with cashback and other
incentives. Some researchers have even tipped that touch payments and digital
wallets could lead to an end of queues
in shops, so not only will you not
need to carry a purse, you may also not have to queue much longer.

On top of this, your
phone can also carry loyalty cards around with you
. Whether it’s your
Nectar card, or a Costa loyalty card, there’s plenty of different apps
available on smartphones that allow you to store your cards all in one place,
digitally, so you will never have to carry a purse on you again. Some apps such
as the Apple Wallet also provide a place for you to store boarding passes,
tickets, reward cards along with Apple Pay credit and debit cards too.

With
the vast increased in technology, the need to carry a purse with you has become
diminished. Unless you’re looking to use a purse as a fashion statement, all
you need to take out with you now is a mobile phone, making your trips much
lighter without the worry of leaving a purse or handbag somewhere you
shouldn’t.
