Network International, a leading enabler of digital commerce in the Middle East and Africa region, and Carrefour – owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE – have announced that they have implemented Face Pay for payments from PopID.
Customers are now able to purchase food and daily essentials using Face Pay. Consumers can enrol for the service through Carrefour’s mobile app or website and then purchase products at Carrefour by smiling at a payment terminal instead of pulling out a phone or card. This solution is based on proprietary facial recognition technology developed by PopID and provisioned through Network International’s acceptance network for mass adoption across the UAE.
“Carrefour is a leader in introducing new technologies that enhance the customer experience while finding solutions that can eliminate friction,” said Bernardo Perloiro, Chief Operating Officer – GCC at Majid Futtaim Retail. “Face verification will make it easier and more convenient for our customers to check out efficiently – without having to reach for their wallets. This safe, seamless payment method only takes a few seconds and we are excited to be one of the first retailers to be rolling this out across the UAE in partnership with PopID and Network International.”Click below to share this article
