Product Description:
Pay By Touch Online is a new payment and identification service that gives consumers a fast, easy and secure way to identify themselves and make purchases on the Internet by providing a quick finger scan on their personal computers. The new service, which uses Pay By Touch’s U.S. patented biometric technology, increases both security and convenience at the same time.

Market Opportunity:
Pay By Touch Online was created to protect consumers’ personal and financial information from increasing security threats to online commerce. The company’s target market includes 186 million U.S. Internet users estimated for 2006 (2003 U.S. Census, eMarketer, April 2004) and the more than 450,000 Internet merchants conducting U.S. business (Forrester, 2004)

There’s no more simple way to tender payment than the touch of a button, and that's what Pay By Touch Online offers consumers. A quick fingerprint scan triggers a debit or credit payment at the checkout or online. In regional trials, consumers have overwhelmingly embraced the Pay By Touch Online system. And because it reduces fraud, speeds checkout, and requires little or no change to transaction processing, Pay By Touch Online is being adopted by national supermarket chains. If early trials are an accurate indicator, it won’t be long before we can leave our wallets at home and simply Pay By Touch.
