The pilot project with payment cards from G+D Mobile Security will be carried out by Crédit Agricole Touraine Poitou from June 2019 and is the first of its kind in France with this technology. It is scheduled for a period of six months, managed by Credit Agricole Payment Services, and the market launch of the tested technology is planned for 2020.
G+D’s biometric payment cards with integrated fingerprint reader enable Crédit Agricole customers to make quick and easy contactless payments. All one needs to do is place a finger on the impression reader to securely authorize the payment process.
The cards used in the pilot project will be produced and personalized by the security technology group G+D Mobile Security. Other partners involved in the project are NXP Semiconductors and Mastercard.
