Innovative payment methods

Have a look at tomorrow’s payment methods with facial recognition.

At the 2017 DLD (Digital Life Design) conference in Berlin, Jörn Leogrande, Executive Vice President for Mobile Services at Wirecard, presented a special highlight: a bottom-up shop window.

Attendees were able use mobile payments to quickly and easily order, pay for, and get a cold beer at a Smartbar. All they had to do was download an app and take a selfie as identification―and they were all set to refresh themselves.

Sounds incredible? It actually happened. Watch this video to see for yourself!
