The modern payment card issuance platform Convego® Service Market bundles G+D’s Convego® services to simplify their use for banks and financial service providers, making it easier to access and operate intelligent solutions for a phygital customer experience that perfectly combines physical and digital offerings. After onboarding once, the unified platform allows issuers to access all relevant apps or APIs.

Giesecke+Devrient (G+D), a global SecurityTech company, offers a comprehensive range of tailored solutions in its Convego® portfolio, designed to meet the needs of customers at every stage of the typical payment card issuance lifecycle. These include Convego® Card Credentials for digital-first card issuing, Convego® eActivate for frictionless and safe card activation, and other solutions. In 2023, G+D was recognized as one of the "Established Leaders" in Modern Issuance by Juniper Research.

All of these solutions are now also available "as-a-Service" on the new modular platform Convego® Service Market, simplifying access to the various products and solutions and making their use more efficient. Among other features, the platform offers a quick overview of all available PayTech services from G+D and how they interact.

Developers have access to a development environment including APIs and a sandbox environment for test, provided by Convego® Service Market. For issuers who prefer a less integrated approach or lack the necessary development resources, G+D also offers the option of using out-of-the-box portal applications to get started.
