No need to carry cash around, and no minimum spend, just quick and easy contactless payment from your college ID card that is always on you.

Manage your money, view your balance, and view your loyalty offers from the College Coin mobile app available on Android and iPhone, or from the web portal.


To use Way2Pay you need to login to a web port or use the mobile app to add funds to your ID card. Once money is added, you can tap and hold your card at any of our tills to see and spend your balance.



To get started

  • Login using your Derby College credentials to either the website for Way2Pay, or the mobile app. Links listed below. 
  • You can then press Topup in the app, or Settings and manage payment methods on the website to add funds.
  • To use your card, go to any till and when you're ready to pay, tell the cashier you are paying cashless and then touch your ID card to the scanner at the front of the till screen.  You can also touch and hold here without buying anything to quickly see your balance.  If you do not have the full amount left on your card, you have the option to part pay in cash.


Loyalty offers will also be available through the app and website and be collected automatically.  For example, there is a coffee points system in place within the Starbucks areas.  View Loyalty and rewards within the app to see how many points you have automatically collected buying coffee.  Once you have purchased 9 to get 9 virtual stamps, the 10th will automatically become free.
