New Zealand’s contactless payment provider Snapper has announced the launch of its new product range, new online top-up application and new accessories.
The new Snapper product range includes three new Snapper devices – the Mini, the Mini Jr. and the Sprat – that are smaller and easier to use than the classic Snapper card, while maintaining the same everyday contactless payment capabilities, according to the company.
The first of the new devices, the Snapper Mini, is about half the size of the classic Snapper wallet card, featuring a hole and elastic loop that allows it to be attached to a key ring or lanyard. The Mini is available as either a red adult card or in green (as the Mini.Jr) for primary or intermediate school children.
The Snapper Sprat is designed to be more rugged and durable, with a small and solid form factor. The Sprat is designed to be hung on a keyring, a schoolbag, a wallet, or a mobile phone, and can be electronically personalized so that students can use it on public transport and receive any child fare concessions and discounts they are entitled to.
Snapper is also launching the new MySnapper Top Up Application, which is free to download and allows Snapper’s 125,000 customers to load credit onto their cards online via Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
In addition, the company has released an official Snapper lanyard and a sturdy card case to protect new cards from everyday wear and tear.
