Snappcar currently has 400,000 users across Europe, and is looking to Onfido, which accepts 600 document types across 192 territories, to validate customer identities as it expands into other geographical regions. Onfido will help quickly and efficiently onboard new users, who will be required to upload a picture of their identity document, along with a selfie to join Snappcar.
In a statement, Erica Rasch, SnappCar Product Owner said that Onfido “improves the speed of [SnappCar’s] identity verification process.” She added, “They enable us to be much more flexible in adapting the verification criteria, which means a better verification experience for our international user base.”
Snappcar joins Onfido’s other clients in the P2P car-sharing industry, including Drivy, BlaBlaCar, EasyCar, and Turo.
Founded in 2012, Onfido has received more than $30 million in funding from investors including Salesforce Ventures and Idinvest Partners. The company provides identity checks in 195 countries for 1,500 customers across the globe. At FinovateEurope last week, Onfido demoed how it conducts a facial verification check with video (the demo video will be available next week.) Husayn Kassai is CEO.
