Systems, methods and computer programs for use in processing payment authorization requests for payment transactions to be conducted via a data communications network. At a trusted intermediary system, data indicative of the user having been authenticated by a first authentication process conducted between the user and a data communication interface associated with a bank data processing system is received via a data communication network. In response to the receipt of the authentication-indicative data, a user account corresponding to one or more transactional accounts held by a user at the bank data processing system is activated. Payment data associated with the one or more transactional accounts is stored in a data store in association with the user account. Following a subsequent authentication of the user by a second authentication process conducted between the user and the trusted intermediary system, the stored payment data is retrieved from the data store for use in processing at least one payment authorization request involving the user.

Systems and methods described herein are for transmitting a command to a remote system. A processing system determines the identity of the user based on the unique identifier and the biometric information. Thereafter, a sensor detects a gesture performed by the user. The sensor is configured to detect the gesture performed by the user when the user is located within the detectable range of the wireless antenna. The processing system determines an action associated with the detected gesture based on the identity of the user and sends a command to a remote computer system to cause it to perform the action associated with the detected gesture.
