Time was, if you wanted a Frappuccino you’d have to pay for it with your credit or debit card like an animal. And don’t get me started on cash. Fortunately, muggles have evolved to the point where we can pay for things with our smartphones. It’s almost like magic, but not quite. For real magic, you need a wizard.
You need a wizard with an Ollivander19.
The Ollivander19 is a wizarding wand with an RFID chip that can be scanned by most tap-and-go payment points. Just remove your wand, wave it on front of the scanner, and voila! Your payment is made, and you only looked slightly silly doing it. Alas, there are only eight of these wands in existence, and the only way to get one is to sign up on Card Cutter’s website and hope you’re one of the lucky few who are chosen.
Of course, reaching into your pocket (or robe) and pulling out a large stick may represent something of a new frontier for store security, but I’m sure they’ll be reasonable if you explain that you are a well-to-do wizard in desperate need of a large coffee and pan au chocolat. Check out a promo video for the Ollivander19 below.
