Finger vein payment tech installed at campus convenience store in Britian
Sthaler’s Fingopay technology has been installed at a campus convenience store at Brunel University London. The biometrics payments company is backed by Hitachi and is partners of Worldpay.
Fingopay works via an electronic biometric reader which builds a 3D map of the customer’s finger veins, generating a unique personal key. Following a simple registration process, the customer can then use their finger to make a payment.
“Fingopay offers the convenience and retail sector the opportunity to gain richer data, and a faster point of sale service – and we look forward to introducing it as the first retail pilot in the UK.” commented Nick Dryden, chief executive and founder of Sthaler.
In June it was revealed that Nordic payments provider Nets was testing Fingopay in its Idea Lab when Sthaler exhibited the technology at the Nets stand at Money 20/20 Europe.
