Wirecard reveals cashless shopping solution with its palm scanner innovation

Wednesday 19 June 2019 11:09 CET | News

Digital financial technology company Wirecard has announced it is introducing a smart payment terminal at which consumers can pay by scanning their palm.

The aim of the new prototype is to expand Wirecards portfolio in the area of biometric payments and enable convenient payments without any further proprietary infrastructure. This method is meant to replace traditional cash registers in the future.

The solution is suitable for use in the retail industry, as well as for admissions at events, such as music festivals and sports events, or in the mobility sector including public transport or at the airport. Consumers experience a digital payment and shopping experience, and can even leave their smartphones or wallets at home. Moreover, through the smart biometrics solution, registered customers simply place their palms on the biometric scanner for identification. This triggers a real-time payment via the digital Wirecard Financial Commerce Platform.
