PayPal could soon introduce face verification for mobile payments

PayPal is currently testing face verification system for mobile payments, better get your hair done

In a not-so-surprising move, PayPal is reportedly testing out a new face verification system for mobile payment transactions. PayPal's app currently features a tab called "Local," which allows users to find nearby stores and restaurants that accept mobile PayPal payments.




When a customer checks into a PayPal-capable store, their name and photo appear on the store's PayPal app. The customer can then use the app to pay for items, with the cashier completing the transaction by clicking on the customers profile picture. Head of retail services at PayPal, Rob Harper, has said: "We're pleased to help local businesses of all sizes offer a new more personal experience, while never having to turn away customers who don't have enough cash on them to pay."
