Biometric VeinID™

The identifier you didn’t know you had.

  • Did you know hidden within your finger we all have a unique, secret pattern that remains the same throughout our life? Unlike fingerprints, it can’t be damaged, stolen or forged.

  • It’s simple to scan the vein pattern, with a pulse of near-infrared light which is then converted into our personal digital key.

  • “Sthaler has created what is a brand new way to pay” Visa

What Sthaler Does

Sthaler is focussed on producing products and services that improve customer experience whilst providing value adding identity services to meet our client’s needs.

Live at Proud

Sthaler’s first product, Fingopay, is live at our pilot venue Proud Camden. Fingopay allows individuals to identify themselves, pay for drinks and food, access an event by using only their finger. This removes the costs of manufacturing, distributing and managing plastic cards.

No more PINs, passwords, cash, loyalty or bank cards

Fingopay provides retail, hospitality and entertainment businesses with the smartest, most effective way to initiate, personalise and extend customer relationships. For the first time retailers can instantly identify return users, take a payment, automatically apply loyalty rewards and issue the customer with a digital receipt in one transaction; without the need for customers to carry anything.


No more PINs, passwords, cash or bank cards - Allow consumers to pay for goods and services, gain entry and manage payments online using just a finger.


Builds a 3D map of veins within a finger - create a natural, personal key. Each finger is unique to each of us - the chance that two people have the same vein structure is 3.4 billion-to-1.


Conforms to Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards - There is no higher mathematical certainty of proving someone’s identity, so it’s the most secure and convenient way to protect yourself and your data.

Our Story

Sthaler was first created to solve the issue of transactions within the music festival industry, but it applies to anywhere else. Our goal was to find a fresh way to pay with no hassle like cash, reduced the chance of theft, replaced plastic, pre-loaded wrist bands or required a (charged-up) £500+ smartphone. So we started to explore…We discovered a natural and fresh way. Welcome to Vein ID – a natural biometric – it turns out to be the most secure way to prove your identity and is easy for people to use.  Now it’s possible to spend money with your finger. No plastic. No cash. No phone.  You can pay with just … you.
