Wednesday 19 October 2022 14:46 CET | News

India-based payments and API banking solution Cashfree Payments has launched Issuance to enable businesses to launch prepaid cards and wallets.


Issuance is a prepaid card and wallet issuance API stack that can be used for payroll and incentive disbursals, customer loyalty programmes, and expense management among other use cases, while also allowing businesses such as fintechs and platforms to launch mono-branded and co-branded prepaid cards, both physical and virtual, and wallets for their customers, employees, and partners.

Offering low-code and no-code flows, Issuance will enable businesses to launch customised prepaid card or wallet in a matter of weeks, with no deep integration with multiple entities being needed. Additionally, the solution allows platforms to design and customise their own features for prepaid card such as:
  • Spend limits assignation;

  • Closed loop, open loop, or hybrid payment options creation;

  • Minimum and full KYC (Know Your Customer) prepaid cards facilitation.

With Issuance, businesses are enabled to create tools, as it can be bundled with Cashfree Payments’ Payment Gateway and Payouts; as an example, fintechs can leverage these solutions to scale neo-banking use cases (e.g.: parent-child or family expense management), amongst other use cases.

Cashfree Payments representatives have stated in their press release that the launch of the Issuance solution strengthens the company’s focus on accelerating digital payments for India.
