What is a virtual card?
A virtual card is a card that exists entirely online. There is no delivery of a physical card but rather, the card details are issued to you immediately on approval. This means that you can apply and be issued your card details in a matter of minutes!
“South Africans are increasingly shopping online to access what they need without leaving their home, but the safety of their payment details remains a key concern. The new virtual card means that consumers no longer need to use their primary bank card for online shopping.”
