Netherland Supermarket Chain Trying Biometric Payment

Are European retailers going to have any better luck than American retailers with consumer-facing biometric payments? The 750-store Albert Heijn supermarket chain, the largest such chain in the Netherlands, is about to find out.

While various European chains (such as Germany's Wagener Department Stores) have enjoyed modest success with biometrics, the Albert Heijn chain's June 17 statement said it would commit to the trial for six months.
