Wirecard, Oney Bank to launch biometric payment system in Romania

Thursday 7 February 2019 | 12:19 PM CET

Wirecard has partnered with Oney Bank to implement mobile app Well.com, which allows biometric authentication payment by fingerprint in Romania.

Oney Bank, the banking and financial arm of Auchan Retail Romania, will allow consumers to pay with the app in over 30 Auchan stores throughout the country. Other countries and merchants are taken into consideration to be offered the solution as a payment method in the future.

Well.com allows users to pay with their fingerprint or QR code in a secure way, while Wirecard integrates the wallet in the mobile app, enables card registration, and activation via 3-D Secure. Also, it processes the fingerprint and QR transactions. Currently, the mobile app is available for both Android and iOS, along with any Mastercard or Visa debit or credit card issued in Romania.
