ECommLink, a leading value added prepaid debit processor, announced today the integration of its prepaid debit processing platform with The Western Union Company, a leader in the money transfer segment of global payments.
The integration with Western Union enables eCommLink prepaid debit card programs to offer cash reloads at hundreds of thousands of Western Union locations worldwide.
"One of the keys to our success as a prepaid debit processor is the array of features and options that we offer our program managers. Western Union is a powerful addition to this feature set. Not only is it one of the most recognizable brands in the world, but the convenience it offers cardholders in terms of the numbers and locations of its agents is unparalleled," stated Paul Smith, Senior Vice President of Business Development, eCommLink, Inc.
Fast and simple reloads are a critical part of increasing the life and transaction volume of a prepaid card, which in turn directly relates to the profitability of a prepaid debit program. With this integration, eCommLink processed prepaid debit programs can now offer cardholders cash reloads at Green Dot and Western Union locations, ACH (including direct deposit), credit card reloads online or by phone, and loads from card or account transfers.
