Why is my personal information required to make payments on CardUp?
As a payment processor, we are required to verify the identity of our customers for transactions involving the exchange for a product or service.
CardUp is permitted under the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) to collect your information, such as your NRIC/FIN to facilitate the verification of your payments. This ensures that when you make a payment using our service, we may be able to positively identify you as the individual who both registered with us and made the payment to conduct the relevant KYC checks (that also help prevent money-laundering and terrorist financing).
