Electronic Fingerprint Reader

Hi, I'm looking for a commercially viable fingerprint sensor to use in my product. Most fingerprint sensors I have been looking at on Digikey are super expensive ($20+) and don't seem to be able to be ordered in bulk. This reduces my product's potential profit margins by an absurd amount. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for a cheaper fingerprint sensor that can be ordered in bulk for a commercial product. The sensor can be of any size but ideally it would be as small as possible. Any suggestions help, thanks!

Less than 6.00 US (+shipping ) at ali express ( from their russian warehouse, 40 days max for the delivery, but comments are about a much faster delivery from them). Less than 10$CAN at eBay ( + shipping, probably from Shenzhen/Hong Kong)
