Wirecard launches new prepaid Visa card – mycard2go

mycard2goA new prepaid Visa card from Wirecard is now available to consumers: mycard2go.  Issued by Wirecard Bank AG, 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. Users of the mycard2go prepaid card can make cashless payments at over 24 million Visa acceptance points.

“Our objective is to fulfil the needs of our customers by leveraging innovations. Our collaboration with Wirecard has enabled this. We are delighted to launch the mycard2go prepaid visa card solution, a modern product which also represents the first Simply One Visa solution on the market,” said Albrecht Kiel, Regional Managing Director Central Europe at Visa Europe.

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.

Alexander von Knoop, Executive Board member at Wirecard said, “The mycard2go prepaid card offers state-of-the-art functionality. In developing these features, the focus was on the needs of end consumers. We look forward to consistently further developing the product in collaboration with our customers and partners in the coming years. Our goal is to establish our appealing prepaid Visa card solution throughout Europe in tandem with retail partners.”

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.
