Equifax Partners with Jumio for Mobile Commerce

Equifax logo 140pxEquifax has announced a partnership with Jumio to develop "a series of solutions that will create a more streamlined, secure mobile transaction process for both consumers and retailers."

One of the biggest challenges facing the mobile commerce industry is shopping cart abandonment. Almost 47 percent of consumers have abandoned a mobile purchase specifically due to the difficulty of entering personal information and card data on a small device. By leveraging the strengths of Equifax 1-Touch Services and Jumio’s proprietary Netverify and Netswipe technology, Equifax will be able to auto-fill the personally identifiable information needed to complete a transaction on a mobile device. Equifax consumer information resources will be utilized in tandem with Jumio’s authentication and validation capabilities to reduce fraud, increase purchases and ultimately improve the consumer mobile commerce experience.

“The partnership with Jumio will bring our mobile commerce capabilities to the forefront of a very dynamic, cutting-edge industry,” said Anand Krishnaswamy, Vice President of Mobile Commerce, Equifax Inc.

“Our joint initiatives are unmatched in the market, and we’ll be working very closely with Jumio to take our technologies and solutions to the next level by making mobile transactions easier than ever and more secure for consumers and retailers alike. Consumer identity verification, device authentication and credit card origination can now be done in real-time with just the tap of a finger.”

The solutions will also be integrated with the Equifax Mobile Wallet functionality, allowing consumers to access their cards on their mobile device to use for purchases. Shoppers can choose to either scan their credit card with their smartphone, or utilize their smartphones in-store at the checkout counter to complete the transaction. Additionally, users can opt in for instant, store-brand credit card offers. If the line of credit is extended to the user, they can instantly use the card on their mobile device. Most importantly to the consumer – no consumer credit data is stored or cached on their smartphones.

Jumio Introduces Port - A Device-based Mobile Wallet

JumioJumio has announced the launch of Jumio PORT - calling it "a new secure embedded wallet infrastructure designed to integrate with mobile OS utilities such as Apple Passbook, and the recently-launched Samsung Wallet."

With PORT, consumers can easily make one-click purchases and transactions requiring identity verification, without having to download a standalone wallet app, as is the case with most digital wallet offerings today.

"Unlike today's digital wallets that function solely for mobile payments, and require consumers to download individual merchant apps, PORT enables efficient transactions in both digital and real world environments, mirroring the full functionality of a traditional wallet," says Jumio CEO Daniel Mattes.

"The current absence of a comprehensive device-based wallet offering that is securely integrated into the merchant apps, at the point of transaction, is what has hindered mobile wallets from reaching the critical tipping point."

PORT builds upon the utility of Jumio's Netswipe and Netverify products, leveraged today by leading online and mobile merchants to enable frictionless credit card and ID scanning and validation for seven types of credit cards and IDs issued by more than 90 countries. PORT will be available to merchants in late Q1 of 2014.
