Who we are

We’re the world’s first identity authentication and payment solution powered by Hitachi’s VeinID technology. With just a scan of a finger, Fingopay delivers simple, speedy and secure transactions. So there’s no need to carry cash, cards or mobile devices for identification, payment, access and loyalty schemes. 

The Fingopay solution

Our solution is multi-purpose. That’s what gets Fingopay customers excited. Because no other product brings together such a wide range of identity services. Or simultaneously delivers payment, access, age verification and reward offers. All with a single scan of a finger.

Why VeinID? 

It’s the future of biometrics.  Everyone has a unique vein pattern in their fingers, and unlike fingerprints, vein patterns leave no trace and can’t be copied, making it ideal for high security authentication. Fingopay VeinID can’t be spoofed and outperforms other biometrics, such as face recognition and fingerprint, in terms of security, speed, reliability and accuracy. 

How does it work?

Fingopay’s VeinID reader scans finger vein patterns using harmless infrared light. It’s then converted into an individual ‘digital ID’ key and stored securely in the cloud. Users register to link their vein pattern with their bank card. Then all they need to do is scan their finger to pay, prove their age and earn rewards.

Leading the charge

Fingopay was founded by music entrepreneur Nick Dryden, from the desire to create a cashless experience for festival goers.  Since then we’ve brought together an experienced team of proven entrepreneurs and experts who share one common goal. To create a universal identity authentication solution. One that helps everyone complete transactions in seconds.
