MAP Prepaid, a provider of Visa® Prepaid card programs for credit unions, has announced the launch of its "MAP App™" for smartphones. With the MAP App™, cardholders can manage their Visa Prepaid card account directly from an iOS or Android mobile device.
The MAP App™ is the first network-branded prepaid card exclusively serving credit unions to offer mobile banking. The full-featured app allows cardholders to check balances, view recent transaction history, suspend or reactivate cards, search for ATMs or ReadyLink locations using the built-in locator, and set up transaction and balance alerts directly from their phone.
“This application is free to download and makes it easy for you to bank on the go,” said Jaime Noyola, Vice President of Product Services for MAP. “By some estimates, the mobile banking market may soon overtake the computer online banking market in terms of usage. Prepaid cardholders should not be left behind.”
Credit union members with MAP Visa Prepaid cards can download the MAP app to their smartphone from the Apple® App Store or Google Play™. Mobile data transmissions and card information are protected by 128-bit encryption, the same security provided through online banking.
“MAP’s Visa Prepaid mobile app is an amazing solution for Visa Prepaid card users,” said Cyndie Martini, CEO of MAP Prepaid. “The speed, convenience, and ease with which members can manage their money on a Visa Prepaid Card make this a market-leading innovation for credit unions. Cardholders can now load funds onto their Visa® Prepaid cards with the Ingo Money app, and that is a real game changer for the whole prepaid industry.”
