Tame the overspending beast 💳

Is overspending your pet peeve? Grab yourself a nugget from our FinTalk wisdom.

Irrespective of whether it's business or pleasure, spend control can be a huge bugbear. To tame the beast and bring it to submission, you need a potent weapon like prepaid cards.

Slated to reach a whopping $4.1 trillion by 2027, prepaid cards are a fast-growing favorite among businesses, banks, NBFCs, and end consumers. Thanks to key features such as zero liability protection, dynamic spend control, just-in-time funding, and multicurrency wallet, these iconic cards are safe, cost-effective, and convenient.

Government entities, banks, and businesses issue prepaid cards (shown below) to cut costs, reach more beneficiaries/customers, increase revenue, and enhance loyalty and lifetime value.


Though issuing prepaid cards is highly beneficial for businesses, the process is fraught with challenges below.

Transaction risk management


Compliance (ACS & PCI-DSS)

Operations (Reconciliation)

Customer service

Gliding through these challenges will be a breeze if you have the right API partner for card issuance and program management. Seek out deep domain expertise, experience, and network strength while looking for issuance partners.
