Instant issue prepaid cards: buy, activate, load and spend

PFS has developed a bespoke platform for the creation, delivery, distribution and maintenance of instant issue prepaid cards and preloaded card programmes. Instant issue preloaded cards are purchased over the counter. They hold zero value until the customer confirms the amount of cash they wish to load onto the card, which is then activated via the PFS SMS system.

Instant Issue

Benefits of our instant issue solutions:

There are a number of unique benefits to our prepaid cards. They:

  • Promote financial inclusion: prepaid cards are available to a wider proportion of the public, as they are not dependent on credit checking
  • Provide great foreign exchange (FX) rates when paired up with our multi-currency solutions
  • Are not linked to a bank account: these cards are prepaid, meaning they have no credit or loan facility alongside. Customers can only spend what they load
  • Receive global acceptance: our cards can be used wherever the scheme logo is accepted (Mastercard or VISA)
  • They come with secure online accounts: accessible 24/7
