Shell Tests Fingerprint-Scanning Payment System in Chicago
November 5, 2007
• by Staff
--- Ten Shell stations in Chicago are participating in a pilot program testing the use of biometric systems that let customers scan their fingerprints on a payment device.
The system ties individual customer fingerprints to their checking or credit-card accounts, according to a report in the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Customers scan their fingerprints at a kiosk inside the gas station.
The aim of the trial is to see if this system creates a more convenient and quicker way to pay for filling up.
