Giftcards might be the most commonly known form factor of prepaid, but with healthcare, payroll services and financial inclusion just three areas where prepaid is accelerating it’s clear this industry is just getting started. Speaking during an interview in the Finetics™ Studio at Money 20/20 in Las Vegas, Jeremy Kuiper, MD at The Bancorp, shares his insights on the promise, challenges and evolution of prepaid.
“There are three platforms: credit, debit and prepaid,” says Kuiper. “Prepaid is very unique and different from all the others in the sense that it is really a mechanism of facilitating alternative ways of facilitating payments and a variety of products and verticals are available – very different to credit and debit.
“As a result of that it’s really evolved in terms of some very unique applications in the payments space. It’s been a lot of fun creating and having that platform and ability to innovate and create new payment technologies.”
