Germany’s Wirecard has introduced mycard2go, reloadable, can be used abroad and online.
Issued by Wirecard Bank, it is the first Visa Simply One combined card, bringing together the functionality of a traditional credit card with that of a V PAY debit card. The solution combines high-level security in the form of PIN entry with global acceptance. In this way, users of the mycard2go prepaid card can make cashless payments at over 24 million Visa acceptance points.
Consumers are able to obtain the mycard2go prepaid visa card at numerous outlets across Germany – including petrol stations and kiosks – where they can also conveniently top up the cards with cash. One important partner is wholesaler Lekkerland, which supplies more than 58,000 convenience stores, petrol stations and kiosks throughout Germany.
After purchasing, customers simply need to activate their mycard2go by SMS or online, which takes just seconds. This allows them not only to make payments at conventional payment terminals and online, but also to benefit from a range of other services: there is no additional international service fee for payments made outside of the Eurozone. Moreover, there are flexible product levels. For example, mycard2go LIMITED upgrade allows users to top up their card by bank transfer or cash, while the mycard2go ULTIMATE upgrade means that they can withdraw cash at ATMs and make go2go payments between mycard2go cards.
