Payza launches prepaid card internationally

Global payments platform Payza, which is based in London, has announced the international expansion of the Payza Prepaid Card, now available to most countries all over the globe.

Payza which in addition to providing a payments service, allows members to buy and sell bitcoin online using their bitcoin marketplace. In December of 2015, Payza launched a limited version of their prepaid card available in the U.S.  The card gives Payza members an easy and convenient way to withdraw the funds in their Payza account and spend them almost anywhere credit cards are accepted: online, in stores, and even at ATMs.

With the latest update from Payza, members in almost every country around the world can now use the prepaid card. In an official blog post from the company, they said,

“In the past six months, we learned a lot from our initial launch of the Payza Prepaid Card in select countries. We had the opportunity to engage with Payza members and learn which features of the card you appreciate most. Feedback from our first cohort of Payza Prepaid Card holders informed us that they appreciate their ability to withdraw funds from their Payza accounts to their cards with ease. As a cardholder, you can then withdraw your funds from an ATM and get cash in hand, or make purchases both in person or online at any store that accepts MasterCard.”

Members can order the prepaid card by logging into their Payza account. You can pay for the card from your Payza wallet, which the card runs for $19.99 USD. All international shipping and handling costs are included in the price.

In June, Payza expanded their services to Turkey to support Turkish businesses and professionals in light of the recent events in Turkey where PayPal suspended their operations there.
