Prepaid Financial Services Launch Pocket to Pocket by PFS Mobile App
Tuesday 2 July 2013

Prepaid Financial Services (PFS), a leading global provider of prepaid solutions and MasterCard® prepaid partner, has announced the launch of its exciting new Pocket to Pocket mobile application for the Apple iOS platform. The new App is designed to provide consumers with all the benefits of prepaid cards, wrapped into a mobile digital wallet, all of which can be controlled using a smartphone. An Android version of the App is set to be released later this year and the next update will also include the ability to create virtual cards and make peer to peer (P2P) payments.

The Pocket to Pocket App is available Free of charge to all PFS cardholders and is designed to take advantage of the instant, secure and hassle-free nature of mobile devices. The App comes with a built in Payzone and ATM finder, which allows users to find the nearest UK location to top up or withdraw funds from their prepaid wallet, respectively.

Cardholders can use Pocket to Pocket to perform a number of different functions to manage their physical card and create virtual cards, as follows:

  • Check their balance.
  • Review their transaction history.
  • Load their prepaid card with a pre-registered debit/credit card.
  • Load their card with a voucher.
  • Send funds to other PFS cardholders.
  • Locate the nearest UK Payzone outlet for top up.
  • ATM finder to find the nearest UK ATM for withdrawals.

Noel Moran, Chief Executive Officer at PFS, commented: “Mobile wallets are constantly evolving as are cardholders and the way that they transact. The Pocket to Pocket App is quick, convenient, secure and easy to use. Users can send and receive money in seconds, without having to enter any card details and the ability to create virtual cards provides them with greater security for online shopping. The App launch is further demonstration of how we are using innovation to make the lives of our customers and their loved ones, a whole lot easier and giving them greater control and choice of how they manage their money.”

The next update of the App will include the ability to instantly create virtual prepaid cards for secure online shopping and also allow cardholders to share funds directly with friends and family, who also have the app installed on their phone.

Constructed using the highest levels of mobile device security, user card and personal details are never stored on their phone, meaning they can be confident that their details are safe and secure.

PFS are now offering their clients the opportunity to offer a re-branded white label version of the APP to their cardholders.

PFS Cardholders can download the Pocket to Pocket App for free from the Apple Store via iTunes. For more information, visit the App Store.
