Issue Prepaid Cards Without Hassle

Businesses in the finance sector can now rapidly and effectively launch new payment services for their customers, without any friction, by working with specialist payment solution providers. This means they can respond quickly to the fluid, challenging conditions of what is a constantly evolving industry.

The process of a business creating its own loyalty card programme can now be streamlined. This enables the creation of a more seamless customer experience which can increase customer retention rates of the card issuer. Consequently, this can also have a positive impact on revenues.

Managing business expenses becomes easier as a business with a BIN sponsorship is able to quickly issue prepaid debit and credit cards to their relevant employees. Those employees now don’t have to worry about spending their own money and waiting for a refund, which can sometimes take a while, from their finance department.

Moorwand provides a range of services to make the financial lives of both organisations and customers easier. Tell us your idea, and we’ll make it a reality.

Prepaid Cards FAQ

  • What is a prepaid card?

    • A prepaid card works a lot like a gift card, and acts as a good cash substitute. All transactions are approved and authorised by the prepaid card provider. Which means users can’t fall into debt or an overdraft, like they can with credit or debit cards. So you can only spend what you have. But unlike cash, there’s an extra security layer to get through if it’s compromised, making it safer.

  • What is a BIN Sponsor?

    • By partnering with a direct scheme member – or “sponsor”, firms issue payment products without having to spend time and money on a direct scheme membership. Companies can go to market faster because they don’t have to raise the collateral themselves to hold a direct scheme membership, perform settlement and reconciliation and hold the client funds in segregated accounts.

  • How can we get BINs for issuing cards?

    • Moorwand, via its license, can assign ICAs and BINs to Programme Managers for issuing payment cards in the EEA.

  • What is Moorwand responsible for as the BIN Sponsor?

    • As the regulated entity, we are responsible for all programmes and products operated by our clients. Moorwand has full oversight and right to approve each proposition, monitors all offering and has access to all third party systems. Moorwand is responsible to ensure programmes are compliant with scheme rules; to perform settlement in a timely manner, and that customer funds are held in segregated accounts. Moorwand is responsible to ensure the business, clients and their programmes meet regulatory compliance. Regulatory compliance supercedes scheme rules.

  • How does BIN Sponsorship fit into the wider card issuing process?

    • BIN sponsorship provides direct access to scheme membership via an intermediary like Moorwand. BIN Sponsorship enables a card programme to operate as a Mastercard card or wallet programme, without this, a fintech would need to get access directly with the scheme (which can be costly and take more time). BIN Sponsors work with the other partners in the ecosystem (processors, card manufacturers, KYC providers etc) to ensure the programme is adhering efficiently and to regulatory standards.

Issuing Prepaid Cards is No Longer an Issue

BIN sponsorship combines speed of execution, effectiveness, and peace of mind for all businesses that take advantage of it. You can operate on your terms, effectively, safe in the knowledge that all of the nitty gritty work has been taken care of by your BIN sponsor.
