Vacationers at the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel in Ibiza, Spain, now have an easier way to pay for things thanks to the PayTouch system. The PayTouch system is a biometric payment system, designed to link a person's credit card with their fingerprints.
Guests at the hotel can link their credit card to the fingerprint of their middle and index finger upon checking in. All of the hotel's facilities are equipped with the PayTouch system, letting guests keep their wallets safely in their rooms. The system is free for guests to use, and the hotel rewards guests for using it, offering prizes, discounts access to special events and more. Giving guests the option to pay with their fingerprints is a stroke of genius, and one that could soon be replicated at hotels and resorts worldwide.
