A mobile payments start-up has teamed up with an industry giant to integrate its technology.

Future50 firm Thyngs will offer PayPal payments on its contactless platform.

The proximity technology company, which is based at Whitespace, in Whitefriars, Norwich, is hoping the partnership will give it access to PayPal's 200 million-strong active user base.

'We're delighted to be able offer PayPal as another core payment option through our platform,' said Neil Garner, chief executive of Thyngs. 'It furthers our objective of providing our clients and their customers with the best possible on-the-go payment experience, helping to make cashless payments as familiar, easy and convenient as paying with cash.'

Thyngs' technology allows consumers to tap their mobile phone against stickers on objects such as charity tins to make payments or find out more information via near field communication (NFC), bluetooth and QR codes.
