France-based bank Crédit Agricole de Lorraine has rolled out biometric payment cards for clients in France.

Customers of French bank Crédit Agricole de Lorraine can now apply for a biometric card that enables them to authenticate contactless payments above the country’s EUR 50 contactless transaction limit with their fingerprint and without needing to use their PIN.

The regional bank is rolling out biometric Gold Mastercard and World Elite Mastercard deferred debit cards equipped with a fingerprint sensor that customers can activate by registering their fingerprint, using an enrolment reader.

The Crédit Agricole banking group began issuing biometric deferred debit cards in April 2021 following a pilot launched in June 2019.
