BNP Paribas to Charge €24 a Year for Biometric Card

Fench bank BNP Paribas is offering its Visa Premier cardholders the chance to upgrade to a contactless fingerprint option – for a €24 annual fee.

BNP began trialling the cards – which use technology from Thales – with customers last year.

They enable users to make contactless payments above the usual limit by placing a finger on the card at the point-of-sale.
