Our Story

company-about-3rd

Founded in 2013, the company first developed an identity verification product that aimed to prevent Card Not Present (CNP) fraud in order to protect consumers and merchants from the growing challenge of online fraud.

Listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2015, iSignthis was granted patents in a number of jurisdictions and used those patents to form the basis of enhanced due diligence for the purposes of on-boarding, becoming Australia’s first listed RegTech (Regulatory Technology) company.

In the last four years since its listing, the company has developed new products that add value to regulated, online businesses and brings unique innovation in the ecosystem of online payments and neobanking. Our people and culture are the secret behind our technology and product success. We are equipped with specialized legal and technical know-how, but most importantly we have a shared vision of offering innovative services for the businesses of today.

What makes us different

company-about-4th

We simplify the complexity of consuming financial services online. For companies in the regulated AML/CFT space, accepting payments can be a devious task as more and more consumer data needs to be collected at every step, to mitigate concerns of financial fraud and meet compliance requirements.

We step in to fill-in the regulatory gaps and help our customers achieve more through seamless and secure global payments.

Security is our top priority

We develop proprietary technology to offer solutions that optimize the entire payments cycle, leading to faster and simpler onboarding and processing for both the benefit of merchants and end-users.

Reliable yet Disruptive Innovation

We don’t take the easy way out. We plan for long-term success with transparency along the way.

Our in-house developed and patented platforms Paydentity ,Probanx ® and ISXPay ® are at the forefront of financial technologies and it is our mission to keep evolving and inventing solutions that help our customers achieve more.
