Worldpay is exploring the way drone technology can help combat the growing problem of parcel fraud.
Worldpay’s Drone Pay proof-of-concept uses Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV) contactless payment card technology to verify the identity of the recipient to ensure the parcel is delivered to the correct person. EMV is embedded into a drone landing pad that looks like a doormat, which is sent out to customers. When the drone lands on the pad to deliver the package, the card details stored within the doormat are read automatically. If the information matches, the parcel is released.
