SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Fast Phil's customers can now conveniently and securely pay for gas and snacks with the touch of a finger at all 11 Fast Phil's locations throughout the Spartanburg, S.C., area.
"The system debits a shopper's checking account just like writing a check or using a debit card, but without having to hassle with wallets, cards, PINs, paper or checks," said Ben Willard, vice president of Fast Phil's. "Because account numbers are not exposed, the finger-scan technology is helping us provide our customers with faster checkouts and more secure transactions."
The new finger-scan service is powered by biometric payments leader, Pay By Touch, which recently acquired BioPay and owns and operates the BioPay-branded biometric payment network throughout the country.
As an introductory offer, customers who enroll in the new finger-scan service will receive a large coffee or fountain drink and a Nestle candy bar, plus they will receive a 2-cent discount on each gallon of gas purchased. Signing up is free and consists of simply providing identification, checking account information and a finger scan. Once signed up, customers can immediately make purchases with the touch of a finger at any Fast Phil's location.
Besides convenience, finger-scan payments provide the ultimate security. No one -- not even the store associate -- sees the checking account number, or the payment method used to make purchases. Customer information is securely stored and never sold.
"Paying with the touch of a finger is a win-win for consumers and merchants," said John Rogers, founder, chairman and CEO of Pay By Touch. "Shoppers can conveniently and securely make purchases with the confidence that their personal information remains secure before, during and after the transaction."
