mastercardFinGo has entered into a strategic partnership with Mastercard. The partnership gives FinGo access to the white-labelled Mastercard Payment Gateway Services (MPGS) enabling FinGo to grow its footprint for payment services across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Asia Pacific, Australia, and North America.

Simon Binns, FinGo’s Chief Commercial Officer, commented, “Our partnership with MPGS will allow us to bring biometric payments to a much wider global audience and accelerate our expansion particularly within MENA, which is one of our key strategic regions. With MPGS integrated, we are able to access hundreds of acquirers, and in turn, millions of merchants, to help them make payment transactions as simple and frictionless as possible.

“We’re delighted that MPGS recognises the added value and potential of FinGo, and fully shares our commitment towards making payments accessible for all by embracing biometric identity technology. You don’t need a card or smartphone to pay with FinGo as point of purchase.”

FinGo will be integrating the MPGS tokenisation service to securely store personal data associated with any transactions, which allows registered users to make payments by scanning their unique finger vein pattern. With digital payments on the rise and an increased focus on security for both consumers and vendors, biometric authentication will make payments simpler, quicker and more secure.

Keith Douglas, Executive Vice President, Payment Gateway Services: “FinGo’s focus on identity-enabled transactions and the work the team is doing in biometric applications will add to the checkout choice vendors can offer their customers. We look forward to working with the team to bring more safe, simple and smart ways to pay.”
