Each card can be easily activated by customers instantly and without a fee and can be used to pay online at any merchant or ecommerce platform that accepts Visa.

To make the card more attractive for new customers, it also comes with a series of benefits, including cashbacks that can be later used for discount purchases. 

Peru is the latest country on AstroPay’s expansion strategy list and represents a key target for the company thanks to its rapid growth and development in its digital payments industry. At the same time, there is a wide acceptance of Visa for merchants across the country, which will further benefit customers and the overall digital payments industry. 

The biggest innovation of the Visa prepaid card is that customers can choose to pay for online purchases at any shop across the globe both in US dollars and Peruvian Soles, which will significantly cut transaction and exchange fees for both end-customers and merchants who are processing the payment.
