This project aims at virtualization of currency supported by finger print authentication in place of Credit cards & ATM/Debit cards. We assure them a secured cloud service for all the transactions which will be updated in real time. ‘Pay by Touch’ means the shopping mall or supermarket customers can avoid using either cash or credit cards when visiting the stores. Users can register at participating stores. Fingerprint-authorized transactions are subsequently deducted from their accounts.
This makes shopping a pleasant experience to the customers. To enroll, the customer opts for the ‘Pay by Touch’ option and registers himself by submitting his fingerprints. The customer selects the account which he/she wants to use for transactions. Once enrolled, the customer can make purchases just by placing his/her finger on the reader. An immediate confirmation SMS is delivered to the customer on their phone. The team is headed by Pruthvi.N.Shetty, 6th Semester ISE student.
