Paying For It

News Roundup: In-Display Fingerprint Sensors Are ComingWalmart was back in the mobile wallet news with the announcement that it is going to support Chase Pay by way of its own QR code payment app, Walmart Pay. Meanwhile, Apple Pay dramatically expanded its support base in Russia where it only recently launched, and, in the US,  FirstBank updated its iOS app to support Touch ID. Last week we were still unpacking the amazing biometrics and identity tech success at Money20/20 with the FIDO Alliance weighing in with a post-mortem on the leading FinTech conference.

Last week also marked the date of our FinSev webinar event co-hosted by Samsung SDS America. The live webcast was recorded and can be watched in full at the link below.
