A debit card is a bank card that is linked to your bank account. It enables you to make purchases and withdraw cash by using the funds you have deposited at the bank.
It operates pretty distinctly from a Prepaid Card. Unlike a debit one, this one is not linked to a bank account. Instead, you are spending money you loaded in the special prepaid card account in advance. No further payments or overdrafts are possible once you spend everything up until you top up your card.
Everything is aimed at saving your time. There is no need to search for developers or strike up partnerships to bring the new banking product to market. Thanks to white-label possibilities, someone can do the hard work for you.
You can earn money every time your customers use them to pay. Depending on the fees charged when a user withdraws cash at an ATM or purchases something, you can create multiple revenue streams for your company.
You can customize it according to the options and preferences of your business. You can also set everything, from fees to rewards and its designs, which will help you reflect your brand idea and satisfy customers’ needs in the best way possible.
You will also be able to launch all kinds of rewards programs, such as customer loyalty bonuses and points. Every single one of them has ID encryption, which allows you to track all customers’ spending and analyze the acquired data to increase loyalty and deliver better offers.
As your business grows, more security risks emerge because there are more and more payment card transactions and information to process, store, or transmit. To tackle security issues, PCI with compliance level 1 comes in. Its certification ensures your debit cards’ data protection through a series of requirements defined by the PCI SSC.
These include a variety of security standards designed to maintain a secure environment to protect both consumers and merchants. Some examples of the best practices can be firewall deployment, data encryption, and the use of anti-virus software.
Companies that want to obtain cards either for their customers, employees, or even themselves have a few options. One of them is white labeling of card issuing process or co-branded issuing programs support.
During white label card issuing, one company manufactures a banking product, such as a debit or prepaid card, and then sells or grants the use of that product to a second company. This company puts its logo and branding on the product and has some ownership of it, in spite of not being indirectly connected to the process of its creation or design of the product itself.
