The usage of credit/debit cards for making payments in shopping, lodges and online payments for reserving hotels, booking movie tickets and flight tickets have increased over the last decade. One of the problems associated with this payment method is that the customer has to carry the card wherever he goes and is prone to misplace the card. There are also chances that, the card might get forged/manipulated. Also, the customer has to go through the trouble of remembering the PIN numbers for different cards. So, this conventional payment method clearly lacks security and reliability. Over the recent years, security has become vital in securing our data and ensuring privacy. Thus, an effective payment system needs to be developed that will overcome the drawbacks of the conventional system.

    A payment system based on facial recognition is proposed. It provides more security compared to other authentication techniques. The human face cannot be manipulated as it is a primary focus in our daily and social life that plays an important role in communicating identity and even emotions. This also avoids the need for customers to remember their PIN numbers.
