What is a prepaid card?

  • Updated

The Higlobe prepaid cards are a universally recognized payment alternative that functions seamlessly anywhere in the world on online stores that acknowledge the card's emblem. 

The loading fee assessed corresponds to the precise amount you select to load onto your virtual card. Its purpose is to facilitate the creation of a unique number that enhances the security and convenience of the card during its usage.

By utilizing this card, you can exercise better control over your spending habits by defining the specific amounts to be utilized in your purchases. In addition, since the recharge amounts originate directly from your Higlobe account, there is no requirement for credit evaluations or checks.

Opting for the Higlobe virtual card guarantees you a secure and stress-free shopping experience, as well as cost savings and safety since you avoid carrying physical currency.

What are the benefits of a virtual card vs a physical card?

Virtual cards provide increased security compared to physical cards, as they are less vulnerable to theft and fraud. 

Additionally, they offer flexibility since they can be created quickly, making them ideal for short-term or one-time use. The convenience of virtual cards lies in their ability to be used online without the need to physically carry the card. 

In terms of cost-effectiveness, virtual cards are generally less expensive to produce and maintain than physical cards. Furthermore, virtual cards have a lower environmental impact as they eliminate the need for paper and plastic.
