The Products and Services-
Customers are generally keener on the security of their payments, especially with a card to make sure they aren’t falling prey to the threats. Prepaid Ventures perceives this interest, and in this way, it actualizes any administrative changes quickly, screens its frameworks, and depends on stringent risk management approaches to deal with guarantee buyer assurance. The organization utilizes security apparatuses on an item, program, and portfolio level. Here are some of the ways Prepaid Ventures employs its solutions-
Account Shield: Customers have full control over their account security by blocking transactions. They can instantly protect their card by turning on Account Shield. This option temporarily enables or disables account transactions. Cardholders can do this by using the mobile app or website.
Prepaid Ventures can help merchants who look to give their consumers excellent debit card services and unrivaled customer support.
Biometrics: The company secures customers’ data with 256-bit encryption, a high level of data security. Using biometrics like Touch ID and Face ID protects the information with automatic sign-out if a customer leaves the app open. It also uses two-factor authentication for an extra layer of protection when a customer creates their account or performs certain actions.
EMV chip technology: This technology is used to support safe and secure payments. It offers enhanced fraud protection, smart security, and is the global standard to safeguard customers’ data and transactions.
Real-Time Alerts: Any time a customer uses their card, it sends instant transaction reminders to that customer. As a result, the customer will know their balance in the account. Additionally, its card programs support a robust alert/notification system.
Visa’s Zero Liability Policy: Visa’s Zero Liability Policy covers card programs to ensure that cardholders are not liable for unauthorized charges. This is a guarantee from Visa that customers will not be held responsible for unauthorized charges resulting from their account or account details. They are protected even when their Visa credit or debit card is lost, stolen or fraudulently used, online or offline.
FDIC Insured: PPV’s top priority is to protect its customers — that starts with keeping their information and money secure and safe. Therefore, card programs are FDIC insured. Funds are insured up to $250,000 through its issuing bank, Metropolitan Commercial Bank, Member FDIC.
Enhanced Fraud Engine: Using industry best practices, cardholder experience, past transactional history and knowledge of the retailer environment, PPV makes it possible to prevent what may seem like an assault by fraudsters who also threaten prepaid cards and prepaid industries
