TransCard Announces, Switch for Free, a Turnkey Bank and Prepaid Processing Solution for Members of the Prepaid Community

Now through March 31, 2011, TransCard will waive the implementation fee for program managers and ISOs that join the program*.

This solution is offered to program managers that are with existing processors and issuers and have portfolios of business they wish to convert to a new issuer and processor. The bundled solution makes it easy for customers that have portfolios of cards and want to find new partners, but don’t want to pay for bank and processing implementation fees.

“We are looking for high quality and reputable program managers that are looking for a partner to help them scale their business. We don’t want the economics of switching to a new solution to be prohibitive for program conversion,” Craig Fuller, CEO of TransCard stated.

In addition to providing free implementation to qualified program managers, TransCard will pay for any bank related implementation or on-boarding fees.

To qualify, the program manager must have established portfolios with $1 million dollars in annual spend, be in business for more than 2 years, and be a registered ISO of a network association. The program is targeted towards high-quality reloadable prepaid portfolios.

Switch For Free is also available to banks that wish to convert their prepaid agent program to a direct issuer program through the Community Bank Prepaid Program, partnered with Business Solutions, a subsidiary of the American Banker’s Association.
