Will Mastercard’s selfie verification idea revolutionize how consumers secure their online transaction processes?

What began as an idea by one credit card company could mark as the next big solution to online payment security.

New data from Acquity Group and Walker Sands shows the value consumers place on payment security, supporting the potential for Mastercard’s selfie verification idea in reaching mainstream adoption:

  • Retailers will lose one-fifth of their customers (21%) from not offering enhanced payment security measures such as a finger print or other biometric sensors for mobile shopping (Acquity Group’s 2015 Next Generation of Commerce Study)
  • Nearly 1 in 5 shoppers (19%) have been the victim of fraudulent purchases as a result of a security breach at a major retailer
  • More confidence in payment security would make half of consumers more likely to shop online (48% in 2014 vs 42% in 2013) (Walker Sands’ 2015 Future of Retail Study)
