Worldline has become the first player to be end-to-end Visa-certified to run in-house HCE payments solution.
This enables Issuers to provide their clients with Visa payWave on their Android mobile NFC phones with
embedded HCE (Host Card Emulation) technology. These highly secured transactions will be accepted on all Visa enabled contactless terminals around the world. Thanks to this Visa certification, Worldline is differentiating itself from its competitors by a particularly high degree of security.
“Worldline has been a pioneer in this technology, launching several pilots across Europe in 2015. With this certification, Worldline is reaching industrial pace in powering issuers to offer mobile payments services to their customers. Meeting the Visa functional & security requirements, reinforces Worldline commitment in delivering innovative payments to its customers,” comments Wolf Kunisch, Managing Director for Financial Processing & Software Licensing and for Germany & CEE.
Worldline’s solution is digitalizing payment credentials and provisioning them into Android mobile devices. It also manages secure authentication of user identity and secure storage of credentials into the Digital Wallet (using components of its own in-house developed and hosted solution named WL Trusted Authentication).
