Issuing as a service for Fintechs

Focus on your business, we take care of the entire card program

Looking for embedded finance services? Considering issuing your own payment cards? It's really not an easy task that requires your company to be a regulated institution, a card scheme member, possess in-depth knowledge and experience of the payment industry, have systems that run with high availability, and have a team of specialists. But there's no need to worry – Global Payments has everything you need. As a regulated institution, we provide fintechs, neobanks, and corporate businesses access to scheme rails and payment licenses to facilitate financial operations.

We've designed our physical and virtual card programs to enable you to customize and issue payment cards in alignment with your business strategy.

Getting all services from the entire issuing ecosystem from a single partner reduces the administration and coordination and ensures that processes are aligned and optimised. We help you speed up time-to-market and launch your new business at reasonable costs.
