SAN DIEGO, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Payout, Inc. (OTC Pink: GOHE) has formed a registered company in the United Kingdom, Global Funding Ltd., to become Program Manager of prepaid cards in the European region. Global Funding Ltd., formed in August 2012, has contracted with an issuing bank and stored value processor to issue a prepaid MasterCard® to European residents who require EMV ("Chip and Pin") technology for use in the Euro region. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa® , a global standard for inter-operation of integrated circuit cards (IC cards or "chip cards"), capable of acceptance at point of sale terminals and automated teller machines (ATMs) for authenticating credit and debit card transactions. The EMV technology ensures additional security and eliminates potential fraud and illegal card usage. Global Funding Ltd. will be launching their first prepaid card product in March 2013 to accommodate their European business clients requiring "chip and pin" prepaid cards.
Presently, in the United States, EMV technology for prepaid, debit and credit cards is not available. The existing technology in the United States is the magnetic stripe on the back of the cards that is accepted at POS terminals and ATM machines, nationwide.
"Global Payout's expansion to the European Region illustrates our commitment to a more comprehensive offering for our international clients", says Jim Hancock, Chief Executive Officer, Global Payout, Inc., "Our presence in the United Kingdom opens up many revenue opportunities for us in 2013".
