ECARD NEWS: EMV Enabled UnionPay Prepaid Card in the U.S.
by ecardinc | Mar 15, 2019
In a monumental step for the security of our customer, beginning in March, ECARD will become one of the first EMV enabled UnionPay Prepaid cards in the United States.
EMV (Europay, Mastercard, Visa) is the international standard for cards equipped with computer chip technology. The new ECARD chips will generate unique transaction codes during each payment that cannot be used again. This technology makes it difficult to duplicate card information and provides more security to our customers.
The newly upgraded ECARD is equipped with both a magnetic stripe and an EMV chip. Merchants who have not upgraded to accept EMV chip can still rely on the ECARD magnetic stripe. With more powerful and versatile functions, ECARD will be your best choice when traveling around the world.
The ECARD UnionPay Prepaid card is issued by Global Bank of New York (Member FDIC), pursuant to a license by UnionPay International Company, Ltd.
