The card is created to allow Airtel Money customers to make payments to local and global online merchants even those that don’t have bank accounts. The customers will get access to merchants that accept Mastercards like GooglePlay, Amazon, Alibaba, Uber, Netflix, and Ali Express.
Customers will enjoy all the benefits that come with owning debit cards like being assured that their financial data is secure and private that is, it cannot be accessed by third parties without the permission of the cardholders.
The cards will also allow them to make in-person payments by scanning Quick Response (QR) codes at outlets where master QR codes are allowed or by entering a merchant identifier at any merchant location.
All these benefits just go-ahead to show how innovations these days are looking at new ways to create convenience.
A bonus is the maximum charge of UGX1000 on all transactions which makes the card affordable to use.
