What are virtual prepaid cards?
A Virtual Prepaid card is a 16-digital card number that consumers can use to pay for most things online.
The Prepaid card is completely digital, so there’s no physical card. It is designed to protect your privacy and keep your personal information safe while online.
With the Scribepay Virtual prepaid card, you get one secure card number generated in the app, expiration date, and security code to protect your actual account number from being stolen during a breach or overcharged on subscription-based services.
What are differences between virtual prepaid, debit and credit cards?
Prepaid cards are loaded with a set amount of funds, which can be used to make purchases. When the bank balance is depleted, the virtual card must be reloaded.
Debit cards are linked to your bank account, allowing you to make online purchases or withdraw cash using funds that you have already deposited. You will have the ability to add funds to the bank account by paying online or visiting a bank in store. It can be argued debit cards are more secure or ‘safe’ as any transactions will not incur interest fees as long as you don’t go into an overdraft.
Credit cards are a type of loan. You can use credit cards to make purchases or withdraw cash up to your credit limit. However, you will be required to repay the full amount plus interest and fees if you do not pay off your balance in full each month.
As you can see, prepaid, debit and credit cards all have their own advantages and disadvantages.
