The Zwipe supports Easy Pay at all stages of the pilot to systematically record end-user experiences and feedback and thoroughly assess their impact on business cases.
Nilay Patel, Founder and CEO of EasyPay said: There are many use cases for biometrics other than payment transactions, such as access cards used in hotel chains, high-end real estate with long-term contracts and a demanding customer base, and smart city projects. Following internal testing and external pilot projects, we aim to launch a biometric card commercially in the summer of 2022.
Zwipe CEO André Løvestam said: “As you can see, the largest and fastest growing payments market. Easy Pay is a pioneer in driving innovative payment services, and biometrics can further differentiate you based on security, protection and user experience. We are pleased that our card manufacturing partner, KL HITECH, is part of this exciting journey. This is a lot of fun.”

The Zwipe’s only silicon biometric card platform has received widespread interest in many Middle Eastern markets. The bank is supported by areeba, one of Zwipe’s strategic partners established in the region. Areeba has recently launched a biometric card pilot project with many of the region’s largest banks.
