Pay with your palm? Amazon unveils biometric ID, touting convenience and testing customer trust

Amazon has developed a new biometric ID system that works by scanning the palms of participating customers, planning to ultimately let people make in-store payments, gain access to office buildings, and move quickly through stadium turnstiles by holding out a hand.

The system, called “Amazon One,” comes with numerous safeguards designed to protect user data. Even so, Amazon’s use of biometrics in stores and other commercial settings promises to attract scrutiny at a time of heightened awareness of digital security and privacy, testing the limits of customer trust in the company.

Amazon One is set to debut Tuesday at two Amazon Go convenience stores near the company’s Seattle headquarters, giving customers an alternative to the regular process of checking into the automated retail stores, which normally involves using a QR code in an app.

Beyond that, the company says it’s already in talks with other retailers about using Amazon One (similar to its approach with its Amazon Go technology) and it envisions many different settings and applications for the technology.

“We designed the service to be applicable for a variety of use cases,” said Dilip Kumar, Amazon’s vice president of physical retail and technology, discussing Amazon One in an interview with GeekWire this week.

Biometric identification has been rising in popularity as an alternative to passwords and other forms of authentication, in everything from PC operating systems to airport security. Companies including Fujitsu and AEON Credit Service have also tested palm-scanning technologies for retail payment and checkout.

Amazon is letting customers pay with the palm of their hand at two of its Seattle convenience stores.

The e-commerce giant is trialling its new contactless Amazon One payment method, which connects your palm print to a credit card so that you can pay by waving your hand in front of a scanner, it announced Tuesday.

Your palm print also opens the electronic entry gates at the two Amazon Go stores, which usually require a code.

The tech would roll out to all 20-plus Go stores as the trial grows, Amazon told Recode. It was encouraging other retailers to sign up, it said.

Amazon One could also be used for people to identify themselves, Amazon said – such as when they enter offices and sports stadiums.

Customers can sign up by going to one of the two stores, entering their credit card details and mobile number into a device, and scanning their palm on a biometric reader. The process takes less than a minute, Amazon said, and customers can register both of their palms. The scan then connects to their Amazon One ID.
