FBNBank Ghana has released an internationally accepted and multiple-use visa prepaid card into the market.
This is the latest of its offerings to customers and clients of the bank aimed at delivering convenience, security and privacy.
The card which was launched as one of the highlights of the bank’s 25th anniversary celebration delivers several benefits to users.
These include multiple use over a 36-month period and worldwide acceptance on all Visa-enabled platforms and Automated Teller Machines (ATMs).
A media release issued in Accra by the bank said the card also limited spending to only the funds available on it as it was a “stand-alone” and, therefore, not linked to customers’ accounts.
Other benefits include a dual currency feature which allows for loading in Ghana cedi and US dollars, in addition to the fact that it can be used by individuals, corporate entities and families to restrict spending on travels, projects or errands.
Speaking about the benefits and features of the card, the Head, E-Business Solutions at the bank, Mr Alexander Markwei, said, “In our daily dealings with our customers and clients, we are able to pick out what they expect of us and what their needs are. These insights enable us to make available products which meet their expectations and make life less stressful for them.”
He said “the features of the FBNBank Ghana Visa Prepaid Card uniquely address the needs of a number of customer groups with the added benefit of overlapping into areas which though offer a benefit, completely come as a plus.
With features such as EMV Chip and PIN-enabled in addition to being a “stand-alone”, our customers can enjoy the use of a low-risk product on several platforms, including the internet, to make purchases.
The multiple use lends the card to a variety of needs from personal through family or group use to several corporate purposes.
For us at FBNBank, our commitment to our brand promise enjoins us to continue offering our customers and clients the ultimate gold standard of value and excellence. This is what drives us to remain focused on making life easier for our customers and clients”.
The FBNBank Ghana Visa Prepaid Card can be co-branded for organisations for specific occasions and comes with several safety features, including Contactless, EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) Chip and PIN-enabled for optimum protection, default but adjustable spend limit for ATMs and Point of Sale (POS) devices and customised daily spending limit. It also offers low risk in terms of fraud when used on the internet. In addition to its use for personal reasons, the FBNBank Ghana Visa Prepaid Card can also be used as a gift card, a salary card, a health card, a travel card, savings card and also an internet card.
