Alipay's 'Dragonfly' plug-and-play device (formerly known as 'Smile to Pay') boasts a new and improved design that helps to make facial recognition accessible to consumers and merchants alike.

The Dragonfly device itself is roughly one-tenth the size of traditional self-service POS machines, is highly adaptable to different frameworks, as well as a cost-effective solution, especially for small businesses. As facial recognition technology is a key component of the design, the updated POS system design boasts an updated processor and an integrated 3D structured light camera to maximize accuracy.

Thousands of merchants across hundreds of Chinese cities are already using Alipay's facial recognition payment solutions and with this updated device, consumers will be able to enjoy faster payments and less time waiting in line.
