At Mobile World Congress 2016, Visa will join innovators from around the world to demonstrate the increasingly important role mobile is playing in how people pay and get paid. Visitors to the Visa booth can explore how a wave of a hand could pay for groceries, or how a connected car can allow a consumer to pay for gas and parking from the comfort of the driver’s seat.

Visa will showcase the future of payments, including:

  • Connected Commerce: Explore new ways to pay with mobile devices using mVisa and Visa Checkout, as well as a number of wearable contactless payment devices, such as Barclaycard’s bPay wristbands, keychains and stickers
  • Connected Car: Experience the latest fuel and parking proof-of-concept apps in a connected car that bring greater simplicity and convenience to everyday tasks
  • Biometric Authentication: Preview the future of payment authentication prototypes through biometrics. Learn how you could pay at the register with the simple wave of hand, or through facial recognition and fingerprint capabilities on mobile devices
