See information posted on NRF Big Show Website .  The kiosk association in conjunction with Datacap has nominated PopID Pay-By-Face as a candidate for Best Payment Innovation.  Please visit and vote so we can help promote contactless payment options such as this for a myriad of industries. This is a current solution already deployed and being deployed nationwide. It is not a trial balloon or idea.

About — PopID is a universal gateway for verifying an individual’s identity based on their face. Applications such as loyalty, payment and entry are available. PopID has various enter-by-face and pay-by-face solutions, PopPay. Ideal for retail and restaurants, PopPay can be used at drive-thrus, cashier/counter spaces, pay-at-table or via unattended kiosks.

Testimonial — An example of one of PopID’s many locations, Daddy’s Chicken Shack (located in Old Pasadena, California), implemented PopID’s kiosks early in the COVID-19 pandemic. Owner Chris Georgalas commented “We brought PopID’s kiosks in a few months into the pandemic, partly to act as a physical barrier between people and partly to help ease the ordering process… There’s no touching, there’s nothing whatsoever for [the customer] to do. I think it’s just amazing.”

Deployments — As of September 2021, PopID announced that more than 100 restaurants and retail brands now accept PopPay throughout Southern California with around 70,000 registered users and more than four million facial authentications.  On September 7th, 2021, PopID announced they plan to go national.

Vote for innovation such as this which makes it possible for small to medium to large businesses all easily use. Benefits are:

  • Improved Safety and health factors
  • Higher Sales
  • Lower payment processing fees
  • Increased throughput (faster transactions)
  • Higher loyalty program participation
  • Scalable with full integration support
