Mastercard Follows Visa, Approves Zwipe Pay Platform for Biometric Cards

Biometric Update

“Norway-based Zwipe’s biometric payment card platform has passed a raft of Mastercard tests to win a key certification from the financial services firm. The Component Conformity Statement received by Zwipe means that its biometric platform, Pay, meets Mastercard’s security, reliability, functionality and performance standards. For Zwipe’s customers – smartcard makers – the certification means they can apply for Mastercard‘s approval for their own Mastercard-branded biometric payment cards using the Pay platform. This follows Visa’s similar certification for the Pay platform in March.”
