There could soon be no excuse for not donating to charities if other banks follow the lead of ING and introduce contactless collection boxes.
With fewer people these days choosing to have cash on hand, Dutch start-up Whydonate and ING came up with the contactless collection box where people can donate quickly, easily and safely with a contactless debit card or their mobile phone.
The contactless collection box was co-developed with Whydonate in ING’s innovation lab ICEC in only 10 days. It will be introduced as a pilot in 2017 in the Netherlands.
