Identity Forms the Foundation for Payments Success

Identity for Payments

April 6, 2023  

Payment service providers face a complex global market of shifting regulations, emerging fraud threats and customers who expect speed and convenience.

The constant challenge of balancing those competing priorities highlights the need for sophisticated, agile identity verification. When the technology rises to that challenge, payment service providers can enhance the onboarding experience, meet their go-to-market goals, boost customer acquisition rates and minimize fraud losses.

Unravel Global Payment Complexity

Payment service providers generally face strict licensing and compliance requirements. Regulatory compliance often varies based on a payment’s origination, destination, amount, method, network and purpose.

There are also local payment standards, systems, risk factors, vendors and nuances for global payment companies to integrate and manage. The complications multiply when payment organizations have to rely on a combination of regional point solutions for identity verification. 

Each requires a contract, integration and operational oversight. On top of that, the payments organization has to find a way for all the tools to work together.

A single global identity platform with local coverage around the world through one contract and one integration can simplify and streamline verification, compliance and risk mitigation.

Overcome the Challenge of Business Verification

Verifying payment accounts for businesses presents more complex challenges than verifying a person.

Business accounts can shield money laundering, fraud and other financial crime through higher transaction volume and value. That risk often necessitates additional due diligence.

Businesses can have convoluted structures that make it difficult to identify beneficial owners. When those businesses operate across borders, payment service providers often have to gather information from disparate sources and in different formats and languages.

Business verification, though, doesn’t have to be manual, costly and time-consuming. Payment service providers don’t have to struggle to comply with strict Know Your Business regulations.
