Garanti BBVA, Turkey, FinTech, Biometric Payment Card, Bonus Platinum Biometric Card, Contactless Payments, TurkeyBBVA’s Turkish unit Garanti BBVA has launched the Bonus Platinum Biometric Card, allowing users to make secure payments by simply scanning their fingerprints. The innovative new card will be made available to customers shortly.

Users can make payments by simply placing the card near the contactless area of the POS terminal after setting up their fingerprint. They then place their finger on the sensor on their card to verify their fingerprint.

This will initiate the payment process in seconds without the need to enter a password unless users prefer to do so. Those interested in the multiple benefits of the Bonus Platinum Biometric Card can apply on Garanti BBVA online and mobile banking channels, the BonusFlaş app, at bank branches and by contacting the call centre.

Garanti BBVA Deputy General Manager Murat Çağrı Süzer explained that the bank’s goal is to make customers’ lives easier through innovative products and services.

“Garanti has been a pioneer in the payment field, launching a variety of new solutions including Turkey’s first chip and multi-brand credit card, the first transparent card, the first contactless credit card and the first environmentally friendly card. With the Bonus Platinum Biometric Card, customers can make secure payments quickly and easily by simply scanning their fingerprints. There is no need for them to have to remember their PINs or set up contactless limits. By harnessing the power of technology, we will continue to bring our customers innovative products and services that add value to their lives,” he said.

Meanwhile, the General Manager for Türkiye and Azerbaijan at Mastercard, Avşar Gürdal, cited his appreciation for the long-standing collaboration with Garanti BBVA.

“We have adopted biometric payment authentication as one of the cornerstones of our security infrastructure, as it is considered the global standard for secure verification,” Gürdal said, adding, “By investing in biometric solutions, we are not only addressing the evolving security challenges of the digital age but also improving the payment experience, making it safer, faster and more convenient for everyone.”
