Banque Populaire and Caisse d’Epargne (BPCE) has teamed up with Natixis Payment Solutions and Oberthur Technologies (OT) to pilot the first payment card integrating OT’s dynamic cryptogram solution, Motion Code.
The payment card replaces the three-figure CVV code on the back of the card with a small screen display that automatically changes periodically.
BPCE is planning to pilot OT’s Motion Code solution in September 2015 with 1,000 customers.
The payment card is completely transparent and features three-figure cryptogram mini-screen on the back of the card.
Using OT’s technology, the card prevents fraudsters from stealing the code either visually or online by regularly and automatically changing the card security code.
Additionally, the solution does not require any change in e-retailers online payment acceptance system, both in the form of a new plug-in or a new payment button.
Caisse d’Epargne deputy director personal banking Romy Lecoq-Champeau said: "By deciding to go with the Motion CodeTM solution from Oberthur Technologies, Caisse d’Epargne is offering its customers the first dynamic cryptogram payment card.
BPCE Group head of development payments, strategic marketing and studies commercial banking Nicolas Chatillon said: "This initiative is an integral part of the BPCE Group’s commitment to payment solutions and its determination to step up the battle against fraud."
