Civic, a blockchain secure payments and identity verification provider, today announced a new partnership with CardConnect, a First Data company, to launch its next-generation identity and payment network.
The network, featuring Civic’s forthcoming crypto-enabled wallet, allows merchants to accept payments using the Civic Wallet, and gives customers the ability to transact everywhere privately and securely.
Whether in-store or online, with Civic Wallet, merchants can ask customers to verify their identity or to access age-restricted products when paying.
Also, customers can earn points or cashback as part of loyalty programs tailored to any business.
Accepting payments through Civic Wallet powered by CardConnect means that customers don’t have to carry all their cards with them to make payments when shopping.
Civic Wallet users may pay with any payment card of their choice, and their payment information is protected by industry-leading security features.
