Payment cards provide consumers a secure and convenient alternative to cash and checks when making purchases. Payment cards, such as MasterCard credit cards, provide consumers with a line of credit. MasterCard debit cards provide consumers with a tool to manage daily expenses via accessing their personal funds directly from their bank accounts. Both card programs allow consumers to enjoy global acceptance, flexibility, convenience and security as consumers go about their daily lives.

With Prepaid MasterCard cards, consumers who obtain the card simply need to upload the card with any amount of funds they would like to store on the card, and they can use it for shopping, bill payments or everyday purchases. Prepaid MasterCard cards are accepted wherever MasterCard is accepted. Another flexible and convenient option for a gift for friends and loved ones is the Warka MasterCard Gift card. MasterCard gift cards work just like prepaid MasterCard cards and are accepted globally.
