  • SEPA mandates and transactions management : SEPA mandate creation and the conversion of domestic formats to SEPA formats, production of payment instructions in SEPA format (direct debit and credit transfer),
  • E-signature of SEPA mandates,
  • Fraud: fraud management tools in simple or scoring modes,
  • PayButton: payment platform for the development of recurring payments in e-commerce.


This service, which is actually used by more than 700 creditors all over Europe, allows merchants and consumers to find the right balance between security and digitalization of the recurring payment thanks to the electronic signature of mandate.

WL Trusted Authentication with FIDO (Fast ID Online) compliance

Worldline offers a solution designed and developed to address its clients’ needs for end users’ strong authentication during the access to an online personal space or during the approval of a financial transaction, while maintaining an efficient user experience.

Simple and economical, the solution is based on the well-established concept of "what I own” (the mobile), "what I know" (a secret code) or of "what I am" (the fingerprint). The combination of, at least, two of these factors, is considered as a strong authentication, according to the FIDO alliance. Biometrics having been adopted by the main smartphones manufacturers (Apple and Samsung) as a security and identification component, our offer WL Trusted Authentication with FIDO compliance is ready to be used on the latest smartphones generation as well as future ones.

It also offers an additional physically owned factor (a FIDO key) which strengthens the authentication process and can be used on the customer’s different devices of via USB, NFC or BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy).

FIDO (Fast ID Online) is a renowned technical specification, based on an open and interoperable set of mechanisms, for online strong authentication. It is currently supported by more than 200 large IT companies. The coupling of our strong authentication with FIDO interoperability opens up new business opportunities for our customers but also prepares them in terms of compliancy with upcoming regulations.
