Fingerprints and MoriX Collaborate to Launch Biometric Payment Card in Japan

Fingerprint Cards AB and MoriX Co., Ltd, a leading Tokyo-based electronics company, are collaborating to develop and launch biometric payment cards. The card will feature Fingerprints’ T-Shape® module, which has ultra-low power consumption and is tailored to be integrated in payment cards using standard automated manufacturing processes.

There is a growing preference for card transactions among Japanese consumers, who are choosing touch-free, safe and seamless ways to pay. Adding biometrics to the contactless payment card will increase security, making it possible to remove the payment cap, currently at ¥20,000, and allow for hygienic and worriless contactless payments for all transactions.
