The most populated country in the world is seeing a growing middle class, larger digital consumer presence, and more online verification needs.
McKinsey states that despite over 50% of Chinese digital consumers residing in low-tier cities, most companies are focused on high-tier cities. As companies begin to include lower-tier cities and the Chinese population shifts online, eIDV will be more important than ever.

Data Sources Available for Chinese Identity Verification

With GDC’s Data as a Service model, all data is stored and maintained in China in compliance with the Cybersecurity Law. The sources are independent reference data sets that are qualified for identity verification use cases, and they are reliably updated and maintained by GDC’s data partners. No personally identifiable information leaves the source databases in the process of verifying identities.

How Global Data Consortium Works

The GDC global identity verification platform integrates the best available data and verification intelligence curated from our dozens of in-country partners. Each partner maintains identity verification solutions in their home country, helping in-country clients solve a variety of business problems. They deliver the most reliable identity verification results because they speak the language, understand the regulatory environment, and offer local expertise. Before joining the consortium, partners are required to go through a thorough vetting process, and their data must pass rigorous testing before it is released to GDC customers. But once they qualify to participate, they are our true partners and a big part of the GDC difference.
