Overview & Guide

Overview

Prepaid instruments are a variant of card instruments that can facilitate multiple use-cases spanning Lending, Expense management, financial planning, Neobanking, etc. Decentro has partnered with both bank and non-bank partners for platforms to launch with the issuer of their choice.

Decentro powers platforms to launch co-branded or mono-branded card programs with any of its issuers with minimal hassles and effort. Decentro manages the entire lifecycle from onboarding to go-live while the platform can focus on customer experience.

Program Types

Decentro typically powers 2 types of programs across all its PPI programs.

  • Mono-branded: these are programs that are run by a platform on a PPI issuer’s program only. Any cards, physical or virtual issued under these programs cannot have the platform’s logo on the card
  • Co-branded: these are programs that are run by a platform with a PPI issuer where the platform’s logo is fully visible on the card. Any cards, physical or virtual issued under these programs cannot have the platform’s logo on the card

Program Funding: The platform (merchant) can load funds directly into the wallet using the pool account provided by Decentro or load funds using the associated Virtual Account.
