The card is linked to a broad range of financial services. 4. It also offers an online payment alternative for eCommerce savvy individuals, small businesses and corporate companies, membership associations, and more.

Mr. Gavin Young, Deputy Managing Director ChamsMobile said, “It’s unique in that customers actually see an image of their card on their mobile phones, tablets and PCs, whereby all the essential features of a physical card are shown in its ‘Virtual form’; card number, expiry date and CVV number, for example. This, for many customers, negates the need for a physical plastic card, although we offer plastic cards as an option for customers requiring such. E-commerce savvy users can shop securely online by loading funds from a bank account or any other financial card. For those without a formal banking relationship, they will suddenly have the means to make their money work for them and move towards financial inclusion.”
