Can your business benefit from a payment card programme?

Updated: May 16, 2023

Have you ever wondered whether your business can benefit from providing customers with their own pre-paid cards? Would it help your marketing to have these cards branded with your own company logo?

Lerex provides the technology and services you need to start your own pre-paid card programme in the UK and across the EEA.

Our clients come from a variety of industries, including payroll, broking, travel, insurance and crypto.

Here are some of the ways they benefit from issuing their own cards.

Revenue generation

Your cards can help to generate new revenues and become a serious source of new income.

All card providers charge service fees, interchange fees and a margin on foreign exchange transactions.

By having your own card you can turn these charges into new revenue for your business. Some of our clients benefit their customers by undercutting established providers and still create a new source of profit. And being seen to be fair, clear and transparent works in their favour.

Customer acquisition, retention and branding

Having your own card program allows you to move money around more quickly and conveniently, and to pass on this benefit to your customers.

By using this to pay them or to allow them to pay you, you are creating a great customer retention tool. Insurers looking to get disbursements in the hands of their customers as quickly as possible provide a great example. Sending money instantly, at the push of a button, will create customer loyalty.

If you’re in a market where your competitors start offering such programmes to their customers, it won’t be long until you feel you need one too. But ,if you are second, you may not get the same impact.

Branding provides the icing on the cake. By having your own logo on your customers’ cards, you create a constant reminder of your business that is in your customer’s hands on a daily basis – and you project the image of a large and successful company.

Operational improvements

Money is at the heart of every business. Moving that money efficiently and reconciling it accurately and easily is critical to any company’s success.

Our modern technology and APIs make it easy to connect your payment mechanism to all your internal systems – and, if you want, to create your own apps or to use ours.

All this allows you to simplify and automate your payment and reconciliation processes, minimising errors, increasing transparency and saving precious man-hours.
