The Digiwell Payment Implant FlexPAY1 (Germany)

So, I recreated the FlexPAY1 from Digiwell.

I bought a microcard and sent it to DT, just like digiwell.
The next batch from digiwell drops at the end of this month, I didn’t want to wait tho’.
I have the exact same chip as the digiwell and IAR implants use. Thx @JennyMcLane!

Setting up the implant was done in 5 minutes, then I went and tested it while still in the pouch.

I got it installed last week, the wound looks nice so far.

It’s on my arm, I copied @JennyMcLane’s position.

I’ve just picked the nearest red partner from the DT map, wrote a very long email and got it installed in like 15 minutes (after a good 30 minutes talking). I paid around the price of the implant.

Nice, the next 4 years and some months I can pay with my arm!

I change waterproof plasters every day, if I can I let it breathe for some time in between.
I only touch it with sterile things to clean it every now and then with saline (Cleany Skin). Sweat + waterproof plaster sux.
EDIT: no plasters anymore.

Currently my arm feels a little weird, I guess from not moving it much, I know that from my first implant, also it tingles every now and then.

This week I’ll get my stiches removed, will wear a plaster for 1 or 2 days and then, I should be through.
Swelling increases when I walk around, but it’s way less than it was the first 2 days.
I ate the rest of the vitamins I had from my first implant, can’t be bad.

If you live in germany (I believe austria also works?) you should really consider getting one of these!
Buying the chip + converting it + shipping to DT ended up costing ~200€, so exactly like digiwell sells them for.

If you don’t live here, have fun searching for something to convert!

Special thanks to @JennyMcLane @Devilclarke and all others!

This is the same chip.

I was the firstcone, who shipped the card to Amal.
Then Patrick shipped some cards to DT.
So it started :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
People in Austria can’t buy the microcard. Ut was a bit complicated to get one. :wink:

I guess people could dm german people or just order from digiwell now :slight_smile:

Looks really nice and I’m honestly a little jealous of you being able to pay with your body (in a non-sexual way :smiley: )

I know what you’re talking about… since you live in germany, see if you can get “Cleany Skin” Piercing spray somewhere, I’m currently using it twice a day for cleaning and it feels fine.

It’s exactly what my installer gave me :slight_smile:
Agree, it’s awesome. I don’t use it twice tho’ cuz I feel removing the plasters all the time aint good for my swelling.

I handle plasters reaaally bad, after a day or so my skin turns all red and blistery below, so I decided to use sterile compresses and a bandage instead - feels a lot better, tbh :wink:

Good man! :smiley:

If I may ask, was this recommended by someone (or by the manufacturer of your plasters)? When I had my flexNExT done, I used some waterproof bandages, but my installer said they’re good up to 5 days, and it seems to me like changing them everyday would introduce way more chances of infection when you’re messing with it daily. Just a thought though.

Regardless, as an American, I’m extremely jealous. I’m anxiously awaiting the moment we can all just enjoy this same luxury :sob:

Whoa I have the same symtom, I thought that’s from ripping it off daily.
I have transparent bandage, maybe it has other adhesive.
If that doesn’t help I’l get some bandages and just dont get the arm wet!

I can literally see drops of sweat at the sides, can’t be good.
I believe my installer said I should change them daily, idk, I also do that to monitor it.

You’ll find something… or just pay fees.

I think yours were this “tegaderm”-stuff - I know that from tattoos, it really seals the wound completely so it can heal below in a “moist environment”, in a way… On my tat, I took it away after 3 or 4 days, because it got on my nerves, but normal plasters should be changed at least once a day.

Try that out, it feels so much more comfortable! :wink: I keep it that way and just wrap some foil around it when I’m gettin wet, that works fine for me

Maybe that’s it then! I definitely did use the Tegaderm stuff, so that would make sense.

The great thing with payment implants is, if you want to be extra-sure your installer does a good job, tell them “I didn’t bring cash. I’ll pay with the implant after it’s in.” :slight_smile:

I actually tried that with my installer, Contactless payment is “everywhere” except my piercer unfortunately, that would have been the icing on the cake :birthday:

Next payment implant will be in my hand for sure… this is hard to reach with my arm ^^.

I wrote my guy about my host card to see when live is, as they told me 10 days, 13 days ago.

I was thinking of putting it somewhere close to my wrist on this side.

Not trying to derail you. I plan to start my own when I get it.

So if you card expired you have to remove the implant and put a new one in

Yep, we’re hoping the apex will overcome this but we don’t know much. #soon
