A hackathon bringing payments into the Internet of Things

Payments & IoT

Sept 23-24-25

#IoTPay

Your coffee machine knows exactly when it is out of cups, and will automatically place the order for new ones and proceed with the payment. You can apply this on every product in your connected fridge (beer!). While we're at it: for those two minutes you used your coffee machine, there’s been usage of electricity.


Why not let the objects of your house pay for their actual energy consumption?

Unquestionably, you can be as creative as you want. You can also bring payments in IoT areas such as travel, tourism, gambling, retail, office, video games, digital content, etc. 

And if you're a Blockchain enthusiast, you're more than welcome too.

CHALLENGE

It's time for digital payments to go to the next level!

Worldpay challenges you to develop the next generation of payments within the IoT.


The Worldpay Within SDK will be made open-source, so this is your chance to really contribute to the future of payments and make your mark on the Internet of Things! 

Smart City

Home

A package can automatically process the payment once arrived on the client’s destination. Or when you want to charge your electric car, the connected car can make the payment based on the charging time.


To give you another example of how the Worldpay Within technology can be integrated to connected cars, check out our video.

> Discover and train yourself on a new IoT open-source technology: Worldpay Within, a pluggable payments agent which enables smart devices to make and receive payments


> The chance to develop the first use cases for M2M payment 


> The opportunity to build your coolest POC ever with Raspberry Pi, Lego and loads of different objects



We think that the two areas below are a perfect fit for integrating

payment in IoT, so let's dig into a couple of things that could be done.
