Chinese shoppers pay with face

Beijing : No cash, no cards, no wallet, and no smartphones: China’s shoppers are increasingly purchasing goods with just a turn of their heads as the country embraces facial payment technology.

China’s mobile payment infrastructure is one of the most advanced in the world, but the new systems- which require only face recognition- being rolled out nationwide could make even QR codes seem old-fashioned. Customers simply make a purchase by posing in front of point-of-sale (POS) machines equipped with cameras, after linking an image of their face to a digital payment system or bank account. “I don’t even have to bring a mobile phone with me, I can go out and do shopping without taking anything,” says Bo Hu, chief information officer of Wedome bakery, which uses facial payment machines across hundreds of stores. “This was not possible either at the earliest stage of mobile payment - only after the birth of facial recognition technology can we complete the payment without anything else,” he explains.
