Fundof Launches Visa Debit Card for Content Creators Powered by Intergiro and Onfidoby Fintechnews Switzerland July 26, 2022
Fundof, an Italian platform that provides smart payments for creators, announced that it has partnered with Onfido, a London-based identity verification and authentication provider, and Intergiro, to launch a free Visa™ debit card and payment account conceived for creators.
Fundof provides a bio link tool with an integrated tip jar, plus an account featuring a free Visa debit card, all in one service.
On their Fundof profiles, users can create a storefront including all their valuable links and accept donations on the same page.
With the Visa card, users can instantly spend the tips and payments they receive through Fundof, without having to wait for a bank transfer or extra fees.
Fundof is partnering with Onfido and Intergiro to onboard customers to its platform in 30 European countries, including France, Netherlands and Germany.
Content creators are able to sign up by simply taking a photo of their government-issued identity document (ID) and a selfie.
Onfido first checks that the ID is genuine and not fraudulent, and then matches it to the user’s selfie. This ensures the person presenting the identity is its legitimate owner and is physically present, mitigating attempts of creating fake accounts, money laundering or spreading false information.
After this 30-second process of identity verification and confirmation from Interigo’s automated onboarding system, content creators are then given a free Fundof payment account and Visa debit card powered by Intergiro’s embedded banking technology.
“Fundof is all about seamless tipping and instant access to funds, and the only way to achieve this in a secure and trusted way was through this unique collaboration with Onfido and Intergiro.
We wanted to create the ultimate tool to help content creators get paid and for their loyal fans to be able to support with just one click on any platform.”
said Joakim Hultin, Co-founder of Fundof.
“Being able to verify the identity of Fundof users helps build trust throughout its community of content creators. Users increasingly expect a user-friendly and fast digital experience, and we’re pleased to be supporting Fundof to scale and meet regulations while mitigating fraud.
Onfido provides an experience that is both fast and secure, enabling a transparent and safe environment for content creators to get rewarded from their followers.”
said Alex Valle, Chief Product Officer at Onfido.
