Crédit Agricole to test biometric payment cards

Wednesday 3 July 2019 14:02 CET | News

Crédit Agricole and G+D Mobile Security have teamed up for a six-month pilot project in order to test biometric payment cards.

The trial of contactless cards with integrated fingerprint readers is the first of its kind in France. If the pilot – involving 200 of the French banking group’s customers – is successful, the technology will be launched to market in 2020.

Produced and personalised by G+D Mobile Security, the biometric payment cards offer streamlined contactless payments. Customers simply have to place a finger on the reader to authorise the payment and transactions are not subject to the usual contactless limit of EUR 30.

NXP Semiconductors and Mastercard are also partners in the project.
