Daimler, Visa team up to create in-car payment technology

Daimler and Visa have partnered to offer in-car payment features in vehicles to eliminate the hassle of relying on mobile devices for payment authentication. Through this feature, one can make payments through the vehicle which will become a biometrically enabled payments device thanks to Visa’s Delegated Authentication technology.

Mercedes-Benz will provide its customers in the UK and Germany with this service and they will be able to make payments using a fingerprint sensor in the car. The company informed that purchases can then be made directly through the car’s head unit, or MBUX. The automaker stated that the facility will be offered to other European markets as well as global markets at a later stage.
