With a robust prepaid program, you can gain new cardholders and build consumer loyalty. Fiserv offers prepaid processing, program management and support of prepaid cards for financial institutions.
Prepaid card use is growing rapidly because cards are a convenient and safe alternative to checks and cash - especially general purpose reloadable cards. Prepaid cards serve the young and unbanked/underbanked consumers not currently in the financial mainstream. Given current revenue pressures from recent interchange and overdraft regulations, being able to attract and retain more customers with a solution that can help you drive new revenues is extremely attractive.
Our prepaid cards carry the Visa® or MasterCard® brands, providing consumers with the utmost in flexibility and choice. Card buyers choose how much value to load onto a card and use them like cash wherever debit cards are accepted at the point-of-sale.
With Prepaid Solutions from Fiserv, you can acquire new accounts and generate year-round fee income. And because card buyers will identify the prepaid card and its benefits exclusively with your financial institution, you have an opportunity to establish new one-on-one relationships and connections.

- Replenish value by direct depositing funds - including paychecks and government checks
