Power secure card transactions

One of Fincra’s Management Identity services is the Resolve BIN API which provides a way to validate debit and credit card information before a transaction is initiated.

This API can help to prevent fraud and ensure that transactions are secure.

BVN Resolution API

Fincra’s Bank Verification Number (BVN) Resolution API allows merchants to validate the BVN of customers in Nigeria and verify their identity. This API is useful for performing proper KYC checks, which can help to prevent fraud and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. By validating the BVN, merchants can ensure that the person making the transaction is who they claim to be and that their BVN is associated with the bank account they are trying to use.
