Wirecard AG (WDI.XE) said Wednesday that it has partnered with India's private sector bank Yes Bank Ltd. (532648.BY) to expand the scope of a biometric payment system developed by the National Payments Corp. of India.

"As a result, digital payments and banking transactions will be more readily accessible to Indian residents, including those living in remote areas," the German payments firm said.

Wirecard didn't disclose the financial details of the deal.
