Biometric payments spread to two more US states
Biometric payment technology provider, BioPay, has new retail clients in Kentucky and Missouri for its system that allows customers to pay for purchases with a touch of a finger.
The BioPay system uses a person's unique finger image and their chosen BioPay number (usually a phone number) to authorise a secured debit direct from their cheque account. The one-time enrolment can be completed at any merchant that offers the biometric payment service and the entire process takes less than two minutes. Once enrolled, the customer can purchase in seconds using a finger at any BioPay payment location across the US. The service is free to the consumer.
Saves money BioPay has over 1.9 million registered consumers, and some 1,400 merchant locations are using one or more of BioPay's methods for processing financial and other transactions requiring identification such as payroll cheque cashing, loyalty programmes, age verification and stored value programmes.
BioPay's two new retail clients are Cheers Food and Fuel in Paducah, Kentucky, and Express Mart-Arnold in Arnold, Missouri. According to BioPay, the system saves the retailer money on payment processing costs.
