London [UK], Mar 11 (ANI): A new type of payment card that allows for biometric-based payment authentication is being tested by British bank Natwest.
The new NFC payment card allows the user to make contactless payments without needing to input a PIN or offer a signature. According to The Verge, the standard 30 euro-limit for contactless payments will not be applicable when the fingerprint is used.
The trial with 200 customers will begin in mid-April. As part of the trial, customers will be first required to visit the bank branch to register their fingerprints. (ANI)
