Cashless payments work much like credit cards. Your festival bracelet will serve as a digital wallet for purchases at the festival. Simply place your festival bracelet close to the terminal to pay for your purchases. The chip will record how much you charge the bracelet with and you can add funds later at Cashless Top Up points within the festival grounds or online. Everything is free and there are no refund fees (with the exception of foreign accounts where banks charge transaction fees).
