Veriff to provide IDV services to Twisto's BNPL clients

Friday 1 July 2022 14:37 CET | News

Estonian identity verification provider Veriff has teamed with Twisto, owned by BNPL provider Zip, to provide identity verification (IDV) services for online merchants. 

With this partnership, Veriff will be expediting the IDV process for Twisto customers, while ensuring compliance with KYC regulations. Veriff’s identity verification technology is now available through Twisto’s platform, enabling consumers to verify their identities. Veriff provides KYC verification with its video-first technology and offers an extra layer of protection for users through location verification.

Pavel Prucek, Head of Product at Twisto has stated in the company press release that the BNPL payments market is highly regulated. Businesses need to ensure that they comply with KYC and anti-money laundering (AML) regulations which require companies like Veriff to check the identity of their customers. The Twisto official further explained that the biggest challenge they faced was balancing the tradeoff between the customer friction and the reliability of data gathered in the IDV process. Veriff enables a quick IDV flow that also provides the customer data and information Twisto needs to ensure compliance.

Since integrating Veriff’s technology, Twisto has almost fully eliminated verification application returns due to Veriff’s IDV process and ability to identify and flag low-quality or incomplete pictures submitted to the verification process.

IDV market is on the rise

A MarketsandMarkets study forecasts that the digital identity verification technology will register a 16.6% compound annual growth rate leading to a value of USD 18.6 billion by 2026. Biometrics are expected to gain ground within that market on non-biometric solutions.
