Airtel Uganda, Mastercard to introduce virtual debit card

Tuesday 12 January 2021 10:19 CET | News

Airtel Uganda, in partnership with Mastercard, has introduced a virtual debit card, offering Airtel Money customers a secure platform to transact online globally.

The virtual card allows Airtel Money customers, even those without a bank account, to make payments to local and global online merchants that accept Mastercard cards – like Netflix, Uber, Amazon, Google play, Aliexpress, Alibaba – while ensuring that the customer’s financial data is always secure and private.

The virtual card is valid for one year and the customer has the option to delete it at any time and generate another one instantly re-emphasising the security proofing the card offers.

Since the virtual card is linked to the customer’s Airtel Money Wallet, the Airtel Money balance is always the card balance.
