SAN DIEGO, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Payout, Inc. (OTC Pink: GOHE), a B2B purveyor of alternative and custom electronic payment solutions, announced today the launch and immediate availability of a General Purpose Reloadable (GPR) "instant issue" VISA® International prepaid debit card that does not require KYC (Know Your Customer) information. The new, fully compliant debit card offering is unlike any prepaid card currently available internationally. Employers and businesses typically encumbered by the process of gathering account information from employees and payees are now able to simply issue payments on a debit card, without having to gather detailed account information from the recipient. The prepaid debit card is fully functional allowing for: ATM withdrawals for cash, corporate reimbursement of expenses, independent contractor compensation, retail purchases, domestic and international travel expenditures, on-line purchases, bill payment, general purpose spending, gift cards, loyalty and reward capabilities, affinity programs, incentive redemption, and expense vouchers. Possessing chip and pin (EMV) and magnetic stripe functionality, the newly available card can be loaded with up to $3,300 and can be used to withdraw up to $160 per day from an ATM. The card is also equipped for Near Field Communications (NFC) providing the user with a "Tap and Pay" capability at many transit systems worldwide, as well as many merchant locations such as 7/11 and McDonalds.
Because Know Your Customer (KYC) information is not required for this "bearer" card at the time of issuance and card activation, the card provides incredible ease of use to payment issuers, employers and vendors seeking to make payments while rendering the cardholder anonymous and the cardholder's sensitive information unobtainable by hackers through security breach. Global Payout believes the easy issuance of these non-personalized cards will attract a wide range of businesses and payers from around the world. Global Payout can also distribute cards for travel and special events such as The World Cup in Brazil, incentive campaigns for employees or customers, or and a wide range of other marketing and loyalty campaigns. Global Payout anticipates the sale of 50,000 active cards in the next six months and 100,000 cards by the end of calendar year 2014 from new and existing customers.
This new prepaid card can be issued in most countries (not sanctioned by the World Financial Task Force or OFAC). Each card has its own bank account so the cardholder can subsequently re-load the card through online transfer from their own bank account or wire funds directly to the card account. For initial or subsequent corporate loads, the cards can be loaded either through a batch process or an API, integrated with a company's software and accounting technology.
From a corporate customer's perspective, as it relates to marketing and co-branding efforts, Global Payout will allow companies to include their proprietary logos, subject to network approvals.
"Instant issue and non-personalized prepaid cards here in the U.S. have been marketed, sold and cash loaded at major retailers for the last 15 years," says Bill Rochfort, President, of Global Payout, Inc., "However, we have never seen anonymous prepaid cards being distributed internationally and this results in a huge opportunity for Global Payout to aggressively acquire new accounts and significant revenue."
The VISA instant issue GPR debit card product is made possible through one of Global Payout's existing joint partnerships and a European based bank.
