Middle East Payment Services (MEPS) announces the commercial launch of biometric payment cards based on the Zwipe Pay solution, using Mastercard’s Biometric Card technology.
MEPS is a leading regional player in card issuance, payment processing and merchant acquiring services in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and a principal member of major international issuing and acquiring schemes.
As a result of a deep collaboration, Zwipe and MEPS have tested and successfully piloted the new cards based on the Zwipe Pay platform for biometric payment cards, and approved by Mastercard. These pilots, conducted over the last months, led to this major milestone, making it possible for several banks and issuers to launch the cards swiftly.
