Cornèrcard Launches Biometric Credit Card

Payments , Credit Cards

Switzerland's Cornèrcard has teamed up with Gemalto and Visa to launch the country's first credit card featuring a biometric fingerprint reader.

To register a fingerprint on the limited edition Cornèrcard biometric gold Visa credit card, users touch a sensor, with an LED signalling the successful capture.

Then, for the first transaction with the card, users enter a PIN. After this, they can confirm payments at the point of sale by touching the sensor on the card with their finger.

Davide Rigamonti, director, Cornèrcard, says: "The biometric payment card is not only special in terms of its appearance; it also guarantees a special payment experience and fits perfectly into the everyday life of the modern consumer."
