INNOVATING WITH TECHNOLOGY

 ACCEPT CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS

 

We partnered with iZettle in 2018 to create a new software patch to

pre-set contactless tipping amounts and keep the payment units awake.

 

This tech innovation was a world first and enabled passers by to quickly and easily

tip a busker without having to wait until the end of a song.

 

2021

Contactless payments are more important than ever due to the global pandemic.

Click on the link below for all information on our exclusive Busk in London iZettle partnership and how it works for performers.

Once registered you will need to switch on the specially designed Repeat Payments app in the iZettle Go app to ensure a smooth busking experience. To learn how click here
