What is it?
Together with 1U, Koopjesdrogisterij.nl launched an app where customers can pay through facial recognition. The app makes it possible to forget all your passwords and pay by just making a selfie. Koopjesdrogisterij.nl is the first online shop where this way of paying is possible, but hopefully there are more to come.

How does it work?
You can create an account where you can link your bank details to your personal selfie. Every time you want to pay for something online, the app asks you to take another selfie to verify it is you. After the app recognizes your facial features, you can pay.

What is its core value?
Making online shopping easier.
