If you can’t soar on the slopes like a Winter Olympian, you can at least dress like one. Visa and NBC are unveiling an interactive shopping platform that lets fans buy similar Team USA gear worn by their favorite athletes—today and through the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. Want to bring a bit of Olympic Winter Games cheer to your gift-giving? Here’s a game plan.
Anyone can cozy up in the same gear that USA Olympic Slalom Gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin and other Team Visa athletes are sporting. Simply visit NBC’s newly launched platform, and breeze through checkout with Visa Checkout, the preferred payment method on the platform (bonus: by signing up for Visa Checkout, you don’t have to enter your contact details every time you order online where you see the Visa Checkout button).
Go for the gold
Once the Olympic Winter Games begin in PyeongChang, South Korea this February, Visa, the official payment technology partner of the Olympic Winter Games, and NBC will take their digital commerce experience to the next level. As fans watch the event on TV or online, they can buy the same or similar Team USA official gear the athletes are wearing in real-time.
Take it to the next level
For super-fans traveling to South Korea with Olympic Winter Games tickets in tow, the shopping experience will be even more immersive. Visa’s wearable payment devices, such as payment-enabled gloves, stickers and commemorative pins, make paying for things fast, easy and secure, not to mention hands-free.
Just by tapping these devices at contactless-enabled terminals set up throughout the Olympic venues, fans will be able to buy what they want without missing out on the action.
Get and give
The best part of seamless Team USA official gear shopping? All sales help support the United States Olympic Committee, the organization supporting athletes as they achieve their dreams—win-win.
