Frequently asked questions

Financial institutions, such as banks or FinTechs, issue physical or virtual cards to their customers. The card issuers tap into the service network of card schemes, such as Visa, Mastercard, or Diners, to avail of these services. They have tie-ups with card management platforms to manage the technology required for issuing cards as a financial product.

A card management system offers the underlying technology for issuing and managing cards. This includes delivering cards as a product, setting up secure infrastructure for financial transactions, and partnering with card schemes. Modern card management systems offer a range of value-added services leveraging BaaS capabilities.

Any organization that issues physical or virtual cards to its customers can be termed a “card issuer.” A card issuer allows cardholders to make payments for goods and services with the help of these cards.

The process of debit card issuance involves an issuer, which is a banking or non-banking financial entity, and a cardholder, who has an active account with the issuer. A cardholder could be an individual or an organization.

The cost of a card management system may vary a lot based on the number of features it offers. Unlike traditional platforms, a modern card management system provides access to a range of self-serving options and value-added services to cardholders. As a result, modern platforms deliver higher value for money.
