Digicel Pacific is deploying biometric enabled payment systems into stores in New Zealand.


With this, Digicel Mobile Money users can use a convenient way to send money home to the Pacific.


The new system enables customers sending money home to register once and record their fingerprint as permanent identification within the Digicel system.  Existing customers scan their fingerprint at the VeriFone terminal to retrieve their details and make a new transaction - even if they registered at another store. 

  

Regulators in New Zealand require that photo ID is recorded each time an international money transfer is made in order to satisfy Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements.  The new fingerprint technology avoids the need for customers to provide identification each time they transact which means no forms to fill in and less time spent at the counter.
