GBG ID3global is an electronic identity verification solution. It has the power to check your customers’ identity information to quickly confirm that they are who they say they are and that they are appropriate to do business with. The solution has the ability to call on reference data for more than 4 billion people across 250 countries and territories and lists of politically exposed persons (PEP) and sanctioned individuals. The process is entirely automated which improves application turn-around time and provides greater accuracy and consistency when compared with manual checks.

PayGate is committed to maintaining its position as a leader in the international e-payment industry and is confident that its reputation for providing the best, most innovative payments solution will allow the business to excel in all e-payment categories in the Korean market.
