Prepaid Cards are a form of pre-paid payment instruments issued by Banks and non-banks given the mandate to issue the same. PPI issuers are companies incorporated in India and registered under the Companies Act, 1956 / Companies Act, 2013. A company can issue and operate PPIs after receiving authorization from RBI.
Prepaid cards are also called a stored-value card that allows the users to spend money preloaded onto the card. Once the sum is used up, the user can again reload for their further purchases. Prepaid cards can be used for offline and online purchases to pay bills and withdraw money from ATMs. Technically, they are used like debit cards and have the number and expiration date printed on them and serve as a convenient cash-free purchasing option. One can own a prepaid card without a bank account or a credit score.
2.1 Issuer: Persons operating the payment systems issuing pre-paid payment instruments to individuals/organizations. The money so collected is used by these persons to make payment to the merchants who are part of the acceptance arrangement directly or through a settlement arrangement.
2.2 Holder: Individuals/Organizations who acquire prepaid payment instruments to purchase goods and services, including financial services.
2.3 Pre-paid Payment Instruments: Pre-paid payment instruments are payment instruments that facilitate the purchase of goods and services, including funds transfer, against the value stored on such instruments. The value stored on such instruments represents the value paid for by the holders by cash, by debit to a bank account, or by credit card. The pre-paid instruments can be issued as smart cards, magnetic stripe cards, internet accounts, internet wallets, mobile accounts, mobile wallets, paper vouchers, and any instrument that can be used to access the pre-paid amount (collectively called Prepaid Payment Instruments hereafter). The pre-paid payment instruments that can be issued in the country are classified under three categories viz. (i) Closed system payment instruments (ii) Semi-closed system payment instruments, and (iii) Open system payment instruments.
2.4 Closed System Payment Instruments: These are payment instruments issued by a person to facilitate the purchase of goods and services. These instruments do not permit cash withdrawal or redemption. As these instruments do not facilitate payments and settlement for third-party services, the issue and operation of such instruments are not classified as payment systems.
2.5 Semi-Closed System Payment Instruments: These are payment instruments that can be used to purchase goods and services, including financial services at a group of clearly identified merchant locations/ establishments that have a specific contract with the issuer to accept the payment instruments. These instruments do not permit cash withdrawal or redemption by the holder.
2.6 Open System Payment Instruments: These are payment instruments that can be used to purchase goods and services, including financial services like funds transfer at any card accepting merchant locations (point of sale terminals) and permit cash withdrawal at ATMs / BCs.
2.7 Merchants: The establishments that accept the PPIs issued by PPI issuer against the sale of goods and services.
Gift Card: Issued by a bank or retailer to make purchases at a selective store instead of cash. The sum must be used before the expiry date (usually one year) and cannot be reloaded. This also comes with banking facilities.
General Purpose Reloadable Card: These cards are similar to debit cards with online banking facilities. They are also known as ‘opened loop prepaid cards’ embedded with the payment provider’s logo like Mastercard and Visa. They can be used in the stores that accept these two providers.
Retail Prepaid Card: Retailers like department stores, petrol suppliers, supermarkets, or airlines partners with the banking provider and card network to give the card users merchandise discounts, rewards, or additional services when purchased.
Travel Card: This is the best fit for travellers to purchase and withdraw cash from ATMs globally. The users, when travelling abroad, can load money onto the card and safely enjoy the trip without the hassle of carrying around cash.
Cashback Card: This comes under the general-purpose reloadable card with an additional feature called cashback. The card users can earn a cashback when purchased with specific retailers partnered with banking providers or the card network.
Fleet Card: Fleet operators offer prepaid fleet cards for their drivers, runners, or field executives with preloaded money. They can use the card for fuel, toll payments, lodging, etc., or at point-of-sale (POS) terminals, online, and ATMs.
Corporate Card: The companies use the preloaded money for their business-related purchases and payments. The corporate cards make business spending easier and end the reimbursement process.
Medical Card: Corporates can now load a specific amount of monthly medical allowance each month for their employees. In addition, a wide range of additional benefits like exclusive discounts on medicines, health check-ups, diagnostic centres, and free ambulance services are given to employees.
KYC (Know Your Customer) is an essential part of any financial services for smooth onboarding and customer identification process.
(I) Min KYC – The user must complete minimum KYC to activate their wallet as per RBI guidelines. The user is requested to provide their name and submit the unique identification number of any documents like Passport, Voter ID, or Driving License.
(ii) e-KYC – This paperless KYC allows users to verify their credentials through an online electronic KYC service by providing Aadhaar or PAN and authenticate with an OTP.
(iii) Full KYC – A copy of the identity and address proof is submitted with in-person verification.
KYC is now digital, and the users can handle identity checks themselves using the apps.
