Norway-based biometrics provider Zwipe has partnered with Easy Pay and areeba to launch biometric payment cards and signed a new manufacturing deal with Forzacard.

Easy Pay is planning a pilot of fingerprint biometrics-enabled payment cards in India ahead of commercial launches planned for the summer of 2022, in collaboration with Zwipe and its Indian manufacturing partner, KL Hi-Tech. Easy Pay is a payment services company currently used by more than 2 million retailers.
