Tesco partners with fintech Onfido for Clubcard Pay+ customers

Tesco Bank has partnered with Onfido, the global identity and authentication provider, to provide a secure application process for new Clubcard Pay+ customers.

The partnership will enable a “smooth and fast online user journey” for customer applications, using biometric identity verification

Rather than filling out postal applications, customers can now apply directly for Clubcard Pay+ through the Tesco Bank app.

Users can simply take a photo of their ID and upload a selfie, for Onfido to check the ID is genuine and match it with the user’s face.

Therefore, customers are able to prove their identity “anywhere and anytime” to quickly open an account.
