UK-based fintech company Fingopay is launching its biometric vein payment system in Manchester. Using infrared light to map the pattern of a customer’s finger veins, the system will be initially used at leisure and hospitality venues across the city following successful trials at Festival Number 6, Brunel University, Proud bar Camden and Copenhagen Business School.
The payment solution is based on Hitachi VeinID technology that cross checks and converts vein patterns into an encrypted template. It eliminates the need for cash, cards or mobile.
Fingopay CMO Simon Binns said: “Manchester has a dynamic hospitality sector with some highly innovative operators, a large student population and positive environment for fintech businesses.
“This city-wide scheme will be a world-first, and we’ve had real encouragement from Greater Manchester Combined Authority to invest and create jobs in the city.”
