Electronic Identity Verification in the United States

World’s largest economy by nominal GDP and net wealth.

  • GDC covers over 87% of the American adult population 87%

The COVID-19 pandemic decimated the American brick and mortar industry by moving over $158 billion of their retail sales online. Retailers must now gain consumers’ trust to collect sensitive payment information and securely store their data.

Successful ecommerce starts with a smooth transition from in-person commerce to ecommerce. A seamless, secure payment process that minimizes the identity and payment verification processes is the key to maximizing conversions. We work directly with in-country American partners to provide access to credit-related data as well as commercial, and consumer sources. Each complies fully with American law.

Data Sources Available for United States Identity Verification

With GDC’s Data as a Service model, all data is stored and maintained in the US in compliance with the American 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.
