In a first for biometric payments in the UAE, Network International, the leading enabler of digital commerce in the Middle East and Africa region, and Carrefour, owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE, announced today that they have implemented the Face Pay face verification platform for payments from consumer authentication service provider PopID.

Customers to Carrefour stores in Deira and Amsaf are now able to purchase food, daily essentials, and more using Face Pay. Consumers can enroll for the service through the Carrefour 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.
