A new type of payment card that allows for biometric-based payment authentication is being tested by a British bank. The new NFC payment card allows users to make contactless payments without needing to input a pin or offer a signature. 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 fingerprint.
