Razer Fintech and IDEMIA clinched the Singapore Business Review (SBR) Technology Excellence Award for ‘FinTech Payment Cards’ for its LED-enabled Razer Card, the first of its kind in Singapore.

The Razer Card, aimed at the e-wallet’s gamer-centric customer segment, absorbs power from the electric payment terminals when tapped, which would then power the LED embedded in the card to light up for several seconds while the payment is being processed - making a battery-powered card a thing of the past.
Each card is linked to the respective customer’s Razer Pay mobile app and can be used to make contactless payments at credit card terminals, after which the appropriate amount will be debited from the e-wallet balance.
“IDEMIA is dedicated to quality and innovation, which is reflected in our creation of one-of-a-kind products and solutions customised to suit our clients’ unique profile and needs. As Razer Fintech is synonymous with innovation and excellence – whether within the gaming ecosystem or the fast-growing FinTech market – we worked closely with them to provide their end-users with a unique and attractive payment, one that distinguishes themselves as e-wallet users in terms of status and technology,” said Romain Zanolo, Managing Director of APAC Financial Institutions, IDEMIA.
As part of the Razer Card’s initial roll-out, the Razer Card was opened to 1337 select beta users from October 2020 till January 2021. As with all IDEMIA cards, the Razer Pay card also incorporates advanced contact and contactless transaction technology for payment convenience. It also adheres to all typical credit card requirements, including meeting ISO specifications and schemes, and maintaining compliance with EMV chips and standard magnetic stripes.
“As many of our users are part of the high-end gaming segment, they have exacting standards and would settle for no less when it comes to product and solution excellence. Our Razer Card offers them just that and we have received great feedback on it from our customers thus far. IDEMIA has an unmatched track record in card production and security; with their technology, we are offering our discerning customers a product that helps them enjoy more value from our financial services via both style and substance,” said Lee Li Meng, CEO of Razer Fintech.
IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, provides a trusted environment enabling citizens and consumers alike to perform their daily critical activities (such as pay, connect and travel), in the physical as well as digital space.
