Speaking on the collaboration, Amjad Al-Sadeq, Regional President – Levant at Network International Services Limited Jordan PSC, said: “COVID-19 has accelerated a mega-shift in our region towards more secure and hygienic payments. We are confident that our issuer clients and consumers will embrace biometric payment cards as they provide an excellent check-out experience with much higher security. Zwipe Pay ONE cards will enrich our payment portfolio and further reinforce our innovation leadership.” 

Zwipe will provide Network International with technical support and services for the implementation of Zwipe Pay ONE biometric cards including deliveries to the issuers. The Zwipe Pay ONE-powered cards will be delivered by one of Zwipe’s certified smart card manufacturers in the region.
