Missouri Says "Show Me" to Biometric Payment

A convenience store chain in Jefferson County, Missouri has debuted a biometric payment system that uses customers' finger images to access their debit accounts.

An Express Pay store (affiliated with Citgo and Phillips 66 gas stations in the region) in Arnold, MO has begun using BioPay for its biometric payment services. Express Pay hopes that the system can reduce costs of transactions by nearly 70%.
