Amazon exploring palm biometric technology for retail checkout

Amazon is working on new checkout terminals that would allow shoppers to make payments using biometric data found on their palm prints rather than having to whip out a credit or debit card, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The report follows a September 2019 report in the New York Post that Amazon was testing hand biometrics technology at Whole Foods stores and for use in vending machines.

A spokesperson for Amazon declined to comment to Mobile Payments Today.
