Digital Wallets

Digital wallets are a great way to virtually load a physical card into a mobile app – and store its value for fast, easy access at the point of purchase. 

Digital wallet users can download an app, provision a virtual card, make point-of-sale transactions through contactless and scan to pay or push payments. They can also make purchases or send and receive money as a remittance.
