Zwipe expands biometric payment cards to Africa and Asia

Biometric FinTech Zwipe has partnered with card payment processor ICPS to bring its biometric payment cards to banks across Africa and Asia.

Fingerprint sensors are embedded with the biometric cards, which means customers don’t need to use pin codes.

“Together with Zwipe we will bring a new payment solution that will help financial institutions to differentiate their services, provide safer and much more secure payment solutions and uplift customer loyalty,” said Khevin Seebah, chief executive at ICPS. “Zwipe is a well-regarded technology brand in the biometric payment space and we are very happy to join forces with them.”

ICPS has 30 clients based in 22 countries across Africa and Southeast Asia.

“We are delighted to collaborate with ICPS and bring the next generation of contactless payment cards to banks in Africa and Asia. ICPS’ strong position among financial institutions across Africa and Asia, and Zwipe’s disruptive technology and deep expertise within biometric payment cards, will create a strategic foundation for a mutually rewarding partnership,” said André Løvestam, chief executive of Zwipe.
