Central Group-JD.com Joint Venture Brings eKYC Technology to Thailand

October 2019

In September 2019 the Dolfin Intelligent Platform was launched by Central JD Fintech Holding, a joint venture company owned by JD Digits, and Central Group, the largest retailer in Thailand. JD Digits is part of Chinese online retail giant, JD.com.

The new platform offers digital finance solutions which are customized to the local Thai market, and it is based on five intelligent services platforms, namely, smart transaction, digital lending, digital insurance, digital wealth management, and digital marketing.

The Dolfin app is the first platform in Thailand to use eKYC (electronic Know-Your-Customer) technology for user identity verification, as well as the first application in the country to support an open-loop payment system.

Currently, the Dolfin app can be used at 2,700 digital payment points in Thailand in retail stores owned by the Central Group and cinemas under Major Cineplex Group. Moreover, the service can be used via PromptPay at all 4.5 million PromptPay locations. The network of supported retailers also covers merchants on Bangkok Bank and KASIKORNBANK’s respective platforms.
