Virtual Card

Virtual Card product detail

A virtual card is a completely digital bank card you can use to shop online and load on your favourite mobile apps. It allows you to make payments and purchase online without having to use your credit or debit card details

 

 

 

Some of the Benefits

Easy and convenient

You can easily load money onto your virtual card at any time from your Standard Bank account/s instantaneously

Choose the card for you

As more partners come on board, you will be able to choose from a range of branded virtual cards.
