In recent years, prepaid debit (stored value) cards have become a fast-growing and convenient way to access funds, make purchases, and complete payments via American Express®, Discover®, MasterCard® and Visa® cards, ATM networks, private networks, and the Internet. Combining the convenience and acceptance of debit cards with the simplicity of cash means prepaid debit cards have limitless possibilities. They’re safer than cash, more convenient than checks, and easier to obtain than credit or debit cards. Indeed, prepaid debit has the potential to radically impact the manner in which organizations deliver value and conduct business today.
Prepaid cards represent an opportunity for financial institutions to further capitalize on the growth of debit cards, which have surpassed credit cards as the most popular form of electronic payment (by transaction volume). Prepaid cards provide a growing source of non-interest income portfolios, attract new customers, and strengthen existing relationships. Additionally, the unique nature of prepaid cards provides a channel to non-traditional and under-banked market segments – extending your reach into the marketplace.
