With the higher adoption of digital payments in the country, digital wallet providers are introducing virtual prepaid card solutions to attract more customers.

The digital bank provides an FDIC-insured bank account, a Visa prepaid card, access to 50,000 in-network ATMs across the country together with remittance services, all for the subscription of US$5 per month.

The customers of the bank will be able to send remittances to Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, and Senegal without any fees.

Global payments and card providers are introducing virtual travel cards

While digitization has entered almost all the sectors, the travel industry was lagging behind. So, global payments providers are developing digital solutions to optimize supplier payments and cash flow management for the travel industry.

In December 2021, Nium, global payments and card issuance company, developed virtual card issuing solutions for travel businesses to make payments to their suppliers.

The Nium virtual card will help online travel agencies, travel management companies, travel tour operators, and corporations better manage to spend and increase productivity.

These B2B travel cards are single-use, have card limits, attachment, and matching of booking references to payments with a unique card for individual booking, scheduled card loads, etc.

The publisher expects the virtual card will further help digitize their supply chain, internal processes, helping the travel businesses increase efficiency. Since the pandemic has stagnated the travel industry, travel businesses may find it essential to improve their productivity with this innovative solution.
