Debit Card built-in fingerprint payment: British Bank Natwest tested a new type of payment card that allows for biometric-based payment authentication.

The new NFC payment card let a user make contactless payments without inputting the PIN or offer a signature.

As per the latest technology news, when the fingerprint is used, standard 30 euro-limit will not be applicable for contactless payment.
