China UnionPay certifies Goldpac payment card with IDEX Biometrics

Wednesday 6 January 2021 12:56 CET | News

The Goldpac Group has achieved China UnionPay certification for a biometric payment card featuring dual interface technology from IDEX Biometrics.

According to Mobile ID World, Goldpac and IDEX are hoping that the certification will lead to a formal Letter of Approval (LOA) from China UnionPay that will enable them to expand manufacturing and distribution. The Goldpac card was evaluated by the Bank Card Testing Center (BCTC) in Beijing. 

Furthermore, Goldpac also has a biometric card partnership with Zwipe, which has integrated IDEX sensors into its own Pay ONE platform. The three companies are hoping to accelerate the commercial deployment and adoption of biometric payment cards, through this collaboration. To that end, IDEX’s tech has appeared in a card from an unnamed Tier 1 manufacturer in Europe that was certified by a separate payment network, Mobile ID World reported.
