7-Eleven testing palm-vein authentication for payments in South Korea

 

A 7-Eleven outlet in South Korea is testing a self-checkout system that will allow customers to pay for purchases using a palm-vein authentication solution called HandPay, according to a report by CNET.

Last week, the convenience store chain began testing the self-checkout system at a new store in Lotte World Tower. The pilot project lasts until the end of July.

According to a company blog post, the new outlet will be the world’s first unmanned convenience store to be equipped with HandPay and only customers that have registered will be able to enter the outlet. They will need to scan the palm of their hand at the entrance of the store to confirm their identity.

It is not yet known if the company plans to introduce this system in other countries.
