Major Supermarkets to ban paying with Cash or Card and only accept payments via Digital ID & Facial Recognition Technology

The Expose

All major supermarkets will very soon no longer accept cash or card payments, and instead, force customers to use their face or fingerprints to pay for essential items, in what is another huge leap toward a dystopian cashless society.

Mastercard recently launched a program for retailers to offer biometric payment methods, like facial recognition and fingerprint scanning. At the checkout, users will be forced to authenticate their payment by showing their face or the palm of their hand instead of being allowed to pay by card or with cash.

The program has already gone live in five St Marche grocery stores in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with more trials also planned for Asia and the Middle East. Mastercard says it plans to roll it out globally later this year.

The payments company wants to roll the programme out worldwide for small and large retailers. Ajay Bhalla, the president of cyber and intelligence at Mastercard, said: “The way we pay needs to keep pace with the way we live, work and do business, offering choice to consumers with the highest levels of security.

“Our goal with this new programme is to make shopping a great experience for consumers and merchants alike, providing the best of both security and convenience.

“All the research that we’ve done has told us that consumers love biometrics”.

Did Mastercard only conduct its market research in China? It certainly sounds like it.

The current spin being used to justify using the biometric payment system and forcing the public to live in a dystopian cashless society is that it will “lead to shorter queues, be more hygienic than tapping in a pin, and be less vulnerable to fraud”.

A spokesman for Mastercard said: “No more fumbling for your phone or hunting for your wallet when you have your hands full – the next generation of in-person payments will only need a quick smile or wave of your hand. The trusted technology that uses your face or fingerprint to unlock your phone can now be used to help consumers speed through the checkout. With Mastercard’s new Biometric Checkout Programme, all you will need is yourself.”

Mastercard cited a study that claims 74% of the global population has a “positive attitude” towards biometrics. That number is highly questionable, but are the 74% aware of the dangers of implementing this kind of technology?

All the systems of Digital ID and data-gathering are vulnerable to security breaches. The Equifax breach, for example, compromised an astonishing 145.5 million Social Security numbers. Because of the potential for cyber breaches, hacks in the future could even larger and put entire systems at risk.

The rise of artificial intelligence also means that, as data from Digital ID systems is gathered, algorithms are being built that may have a major impact on people. These systems, though, like the data itself, are neither transparent in operation nor clear even as to who or what is building them, and for what purposes.

It may be, in the future, that people will find they no longer have consumer options such as low-cost bank loans due to the decisions of algorithms whose workings are not transparent to the public.

The only way to stop the implementation of this Draconian system is to always pay with cash whilst the use of this new technology remains optional.

    1. We discussed this and like I said they slowly led us into direct deposit. Now what happens when they demand the same for your retirement or social security? Just questions, idk.

  1. A passage from the Book of Revelation Chapter 13 comes to mind…you know the one I mean, about “buy and sell”….. Hmmmmmm….

    1. Thanks, DL. Verse 10 jumped out at me: “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.”

      Says to me, we must take care of business.

      .

  2. I don’t shop at majors , because they majorly fck their customers and usually give to the cabal for stupid shit

    and here’s the proof

  3. A comment I recently saw elsewhere that may be very applicable here –

    “I instantly boycotted (and life-banned) ANY business, even small ones, that went “no-cash” during “covid lockdowns”. Other people I know did the same. I know there’s growing resistance & this will get stronger in many ways as things ramp up. I also know that the sick maniacs & their slavish minions pushing this evil sh*t are banking on the gamble that most people will sheepishly go along to get along. Their plans for the resisters is nothing short of death, make absolutely no mistake. Let’s make sure they ALL die first!!! Despite whatever you hear from any slave, fool or shill offering a non-violent “solution”, the DEATH of ALL of these sick mthafkers is the ONLY and FINAL solution that will save humanity!!!”

  4. Boycott! Shop local! Start black & grey markets! Grow your own!

    And to end, the opening line from the very first song on the iconic 1980 Dexy’s Midnight Runners album “Searching for the Young Soul Rebels” –

    “For God’s sake, burn it down!”

  5. “All the research that we’ve done has told us that consumers love biometrics”.

    Better do your research again. It’s complete fallacy!

    “Mastercard cited a study that claims 74% of the global population has a “positive attitude” towards biometrics.“

    How can anyone study 74% of the global population? What kind of people were involved in this study? How long was this study? A few days or months? If so, you didn’t even begin to have enough time to study enough people. Did the people even know they were being studied? Where are you getting your data or is this some made up bullshit to get people to think we are all onboard with your sick evil plan for global control?

  6. “At the checkout, users will be forced to authenticate their payment by showing their face or the palm of their hand instead of being allowed to pay by card or with cash.“

    So now they control the checkout of any store even if they pay in cash? Who the hell is dumb enough to give them this authorization? A dumb business owner or corporate scumbag who is getting incentives and kickbacks for using it without the concern of their customers?

    Unfrigginbelievable!!!!

    Well, we all know the self-checkouts are acclimating the people with facial security cameras above their counters (like in Home Depot, Walmart and Target, to name a few). So now they want to take it one step further and have the people wave the palm of their hand like they’re saying goodbye.

    Sick bastards!

    1. “…people wave the palm of their hand like they’re saying goodbye.”

      Too late! The people who would do this are already gone LOL! 😀

  7. I wonder if they would let the dark hollow hole the size of a 44 pay for someone’s food ? Because when it comes to fcking with peoples access to food , someone is askin for a dirt nap
