Birmingham businesses sign up to new payment app

More than 50 businesses in Birmingham have signed up to a new app, which allows people to pay for items via their mobile phone.

The creators of Droplet, the contact-less payment system, are hoping to secure millions of pounds of funding in the US so the app can be launched nationwide.

Customers upload a certain amount of money to Droplet, they then send a specified amount to vendors who have signed up to this.

The benefit to businesses is they don't have to pay bank fees for the payments.
