YUSU is rolling out a new payment system across its campus bars, cafés and shop.
YoYo Wallet allows students to link their credit or debit card to a mobile phone app, meaning that payments can be made simply by scanning your screen.
The app also collects points for each transaction, allowing students to earn rewards, such as free drinks and meals.
It is hoped that the system will help to reduce queues and eventually replace traditional chip and pin machines across campus. The app is available to download now for both Apple and Android devices.
A second-year student told Nouse: “For a long time, the credit card payment systems in YUSU bars and food outlets have been antiquated. This, alongside the relaxation of the minimum spend rule for card transactions, represents much-needed progress in this area.”
A third-year student also welcomed the new system, saying: “I think the fact you can earn rewards is a good idea.”
