This blog explains how to start your own Prepaid Debit Card Reseller Program with a Customized Co-Branded Solution with Visa or MasterCard Prepaid Reseller Programs. Co-Branded Customized prepaid debit card programs are tailored to meet the needs of the your selected market or for your clients that require payment solutions or Independent Sales Organizations that wish to enter the open loop debit card industry as resellers. Open-loop prepaid card is defined as a prepaid debit card which is globally accepted using one of the associations such as the example of Visa or MasterCard.
New innovative prepaid payment solutions are being developed through intellectual property to streamline technology with the current prepaid models.

If they don't have that history they won't know the trade secrets of the industry.
These cards are to be used for various purposes such as disbursement, remittance, loyalty and commercial use. The Global market is primed to receive an accessible payment solution, whether for enterprise, rewards, rebates, payroll, under-banked or simply for a banking instrument solution that can be trusted!

With thousands of transactions and emails per month by the customer support department alone, a solid system is not only necessary but places the programs in a position to provide far superior service than other competitors in the industry.
While other sites struggle to compete using outdated and inadequate tracking management software, the platform should have the ability to provide Card Program Owners with not only timely, educated responses but also with an integrated support correspondence history browser and a searchable knowledge base to help resolve frequently asked questions.
