A Cost Cutter store in London allows customers to pay for their items using a fingerprint reader linked to their bank account

Students attending Brunel University in London have the opportunity to pay for their groceries at Cost Cutter using a finger scanner called Fingopay. Prior to paying for an item, customers need to link their bank accounts with Fingopay along with a biometric map of their finger’s vein structure. Fingopay uses infrared scanners to examine the customer’s unique vein structure to confirm their payment.

The system makes it quick and simple for customers to walk up to the counter, press their finger in the scanner and have the payment confirmed as the cashier runs their items. Following a valid payment, all customers receive an email with a receipt of their transaction. Fingopay was created by London-based technology company Sthaler, which plans to trial its device elsewhere in the world soon.
