Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, wants to take one-touch payments to the next level.
Amazon plans to create payment terminals where a palm touch is enough to pay.
Amazon is reportedly planning to install new terminals in cafes, fast food restaurants, and retail outlets. When using terminals for the first time, people will scan their palms and attach biometric data to their bank account. After that, they will already be able to pay for purchases with one touch.
The company recently filed a patent application for a "contactless biometric identification system." Palm scanning should be part of this system.
Data that will pass through the terminals, including the time and place of purchase, will be stored in the Amazon cloud.
According to belta.by, while the plans are at an early stage. Recently, an online retailer began working with Visa for testing. In addition, the company is in talks with Mastercard.
