London – 3rd April 2013 – GB Group Plc, the leading Identity Management specialist, has announced today that it can now provide an in-depth ID Verification solution for New Zealand, Singapore and Luxembourg.

The release of this new country coverage means that businesses will be able to verify the identity of citizens who reside in these countries, whilst complying to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations or age verification requirements.  It also increases GBGroup’s (GBG) ability to provide a deeper level of ID Verification of citizens in countries that represent approximately 55% of global GDP.

According to the latest MasterCard Online Shopping Survey, two-thirds (68%) of New Zealanders use the internet for online shopping among other activities, and 82.3% shopped online in the past three months. Singapore recorded the biggest increases in online shopping behavior, registering a 9 Index Point increase in 2012.

John Lord, Managing Director at GBG comments, “Asia-Pacific is hugely significant from an eCommerce growth perspective. Recent research completed by eMarketer, detailed that with a projected growth of more than 30% to over USD$433 billion, Asia-Pacific is forecast to deliver more than one-third of all global B2C eCommerce sales and surpass North America to become the world’s No. 1 market in 2013.

“As the number of citizens who venture cross border to purchase their goods online increases, our latest market additions to our ID3global product suite will present new sales opportunities for companies wishing to trade with consumers from New Zealand and Singapore, plus Luxembourg. The expansion of our ID Verification capability re-enforces our position as the world’s leading global ID Verification provider.”
