Tech-savvy Australians will soon be able to pay for their daily coffee as simply as tapping their reusable SmartCup, which is embedded with smart payment capabilities.

Customers who purchase one of environmentally friendly SmartCups, designed by Australian product innovator Frank Green, can download the CafePay smartphone app. Then they simply order their coffee as usual and pay for it with a swipe of their cup, using tap payment. Customers can pre-pay for coffees or gift them to others via the app, which also includes loyalty rewards from participating coffee shops.
