GTBank unveils Nigeria’s first virtual MasterCard

Guaranty Trust Bank plc has reaffirmed its position as a leading provider of e-payment gateway solutions with the recent launch of its Virtual Prepaid MasterCard. The card which is issued instantly via Internet Banking, provides an added comfort for security conscious online shoppers who prefer not to use their regular debit/credit cards when making online payments.

The GTBank Virtual card has all the essential features of a physical card and can be used to make both international and local online payments. It also serves as a fall back option for customers who have forgotten or lost their card, but need to perform urgent online purchases. The introduction of the virtual card has bridged the gap between traditional e-wallets and bank accounts by providing a low cost alternative to physical debit cards. Customers also have the option of converting the virtual card to a physical card.

Commenting on the launch, Segun Agbaje, Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer of GTBank said: “This marks another milestone in our quest to make banking more seamless for our customers.
