Share

With IDEMIA’s Global Fintech Accelerator Card Program, the Pakistan-based fintech firm can now effectively scale-up its operations and offer a superior payment experience, powered by state of the art technology. As the world goes digital, payment cards are arguably the last physical touch-point between the bank and its customers. SadaPay’s approach to financial services is to offer free basic services by bypassing the high costs of physical bank branches and staff. Instead, they will be focusing on solving deep-rooted problems in Pakistan’s financial services landscape through a seamless and delightful mobile-first experience.

SadaPay was granted approval by the State Bank of Pakistan at the end of 2020 to begin pilot operations. During its pilot phase, SadaPay will offer digital payment services such as allowing users to send and receive local transfers via its app, and issue a Mastercard debit card to its customers. With time, they plan to add more features and products based on user feedback. In fact, the pre-launch demand for SadaPay has exceeded all expectations, and they have almost 200.000 individuals on their waiting list. SadaPay chose IDEMIA’s Global Fintech Accelerator Card Program in order to effectively scale-up and meet these demands.

“We are pleased to work with IDEMIA to commence and eventually scale-up our operations. With IDEMIA’s knowledge of the local market and capability to rapidly respond to our needs, it allows us to focus on our mission of delivering financial services to the wider public that are sada (simple) and inclusive1, ” said Brandon Timinsky, CEO and Founder, SadaPay.

The Global Fintech Accelerator Card Program is a fast-track program designed to enable new entrants to the industry, such as SadaPay, to utilize IDEMIA’s unrivalled network of personalization centers and financial services to reach even more customers. With a full service, state-of-the-art card personalization center in Karachi, IDEMIA has been a trusted partner to Pakistani financial institutions for over a decade.
