“Envies de Saison”, a fast food restaurant chain located at the EDHEC business school of Lille, offers since December 14 a new payment method to their 4000 students.
Students get authenticated and pay for their meal by simply placing their finger on the biometric reader. No manipulation of the smartphone is required during payment or any application launch so the smartphone can remain in user’s pocket. The user experience is totally hands-free, fast and secure.
To try out this new payment solution, students simply have to download Natural Security application, and store their biometric data during enrollment sessions and their payment card number on their smartphone (from iPhone 4s and Android 5.0).
