Singapore-based OCBC Bank has partnered with local technology company Touché to bring biometric payment and loyalty management solution to its credit card merchant customers in the country.

The fingerprint-based solution comprises a device and software meant to ensure quick, secure, convenient and personalised point-of-sale (POS) transactions.

It requires a one-time registration for customers to add credit cards, loyalty/membership cards and link to their fingerprints.

Under the collaboration, Touché will provide its service to all OCBC card acceptance merchants operating through physical stores.

As the solution accepts both standard card and fingerprint-based payments, it eliminates the requirement for different acceptance devices.

It also eliminates paper use as transactions are electronically recorded and receipts are sent through e-mail.
