PayPal trials visual payment app in UK

Paypal

Trialing new service

PayPal is trialling a new app that will allows users to pay for items by using their name and profile, as opposed to a credit card. The app is currently being trialled in the UK.

Once users have checked in at relevant retailers, the sales assistant will be able to see their face appear on a payment screen, once the sales assistant has clicked on the image the transaction is complete and the user will receive an electronic receipt. Users will still need to enter a password at the start of each transaction. The app, which has already launched in the US, is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. 

Check out PaymentEye’s exclusive interview with PayPal’s Head of Retaill Services, Robert Harper at the RBT Expo earlier this year.
