The service can be configured to meet a variety of business requirements including usage restriction to particular stores or promotional periods.
Flexible issuing options
Cards can be issued with or without a balance. For unloaded cards, your customers can select a value at the time of purchase and the value will be loaded in real-time.
Pin based and Anonymous cards
Our Card Management service is capable of issuing both pin based cards and anonymous cards (typically used as gift cards).
Configurable card behaviour
This service can be configured to link one card to one account or multiple cards to the same account. Cards can be set to expire after a fixed period of time or they can be set to never expire. Card expiry periods are defined at the program level and can be configured to take effect at the time of purchase.
Cards can be set up as single load or reloadable cards, enabling your business to offer once-off promotion cards or reloadable pre-paid cards.
Card usage can be set as single use, allowing only one purchase off the card or multi-use, enabling multiple purchases off the card.
In addition to plastic cards, this service can be utilised to offer customers paper-based or electronic vouchers. Our Card Management system allows you to issue stored value in any physical or virtual form based on your business needs.
