Clear2Pay joins forces with bpaid to launch Belgium’s first prepaid card

Belgium's first prepaid card: bpaid

Clear2Pay is collaborating with Belgium postal provider bpost to launch bpaid, the county’s first MasterCard Paypass prepaid card. Clear2Pay is a Brussels based next-generation payment solution provider and has been supporting bpost on the project over the past 15 months. The bpaid card has a distinctive, vertical design and allows consumers to make payments quickly by tapping the PayPass reader. The card will be available at bpost post offices nationwide from 13th February and will not be personalised to the cardholder, enabling bpost to issue and activate them for immediate use upon purchase. The card will be compatible at a wide range of retailers in Belgium and worldwide. It is hoped that bpaid will increase the adoption of e-commerce in Belgium, where many consumers have concerns over putting their financial details online, as it isn’t directly connected with the consumer’s bank account. The card is processed in Luxembourg by Cetrel and uses Oberthur Technologies dual interface cards.
