With the tragic event of COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing society is starting to become the norm where most of our activities are done at home and online. This leads to a constant need for a safe and convenient option for online payments. Usually, the answer is to get a debit or credit card, however, how can you get a card for these purposes if you cannot get out of the house? The answer is quite simple, get a digital prepaid card.
Digital prepaid cards, also known as virtual prepaid cards, are produced online and emails delivered cards for performing online transactions. This type of card is as capable as any normal debit and credit cards with similar card numbers and a card verification value (CVV) code, they even come with 3D-security for safety measures. Therefore, you can do online shopping with digital prepaid cards without worrying about cybercriminals.
Digital prepaid cards, a new but very familiar concept
Just as the name prepaid card suggested, each card will have a virtual account and you would need to top-up the prepaid card before making any purchases, but once the money is loaded, it is ready to be used just as capable as your wallet or any debit cards you have with you.
