# About Buypass
Buypass ID is a Norwegian personal electronic ID which can be used for secure electronic identification, signature, and payment. Buypass ID can be stored on a Buypass smart card or on a mobile phone.
Buypass personal ID can be used both for private services at Buypass user locations, and as a personal ID in a business solution.
In the latter solution you can combine both local certificates (issued by the company itself), to serve the internal needs of the local logon, and qualified certificates (issued by Buypass) on a single smart card.
With Buypass ID you can log on to websites, sign contracts electronically, and pay in a simple and user-friendly way with a method that fulfills the market’s highest level of security requirements.
