What Are Today's Challenges Surrounding Card Issuing?
Card issuing presents numerous challenges for businesses and financial institutions. Traditional methods often fall short when it comes to speed, flexibility, and efficiency, leaving many struggling to keep up. Outdated platforms from card issuing providers impede progress and hinder meeting the demands of modern users. Additionally, the high cost of entry can be a barrier, especially for smaller companies looking to compete.
Integration with legacy systems and navigating rigid ISO standards can be an arduous process, leading to significant delays in bringing card-issuing services to market. On top of that, the requirement for a sponsor bank to access Visa and Mastercard for card issuance adds complexity and reliance on external parties. The quest for BIN sponsorship, vital for issuing cards under one's own brand, can be a time-consuming and intricate journey.
Why Might a Business or Financial Institution Opt to Issue its Own Cards?
Despite the challenges, there are compelling reasons why businesses and financial institutions may choose to issue their own cards. Doing so grants complete control over card features, design, and branding, enabling tailored offerings to meet specific customer needs and enhance their brand image. Moreover, issuing your own cards allows for a seamless and personalized customer experience, providing convenient payment options and real-time fund validation.
Issuing cards also opens up additional revenue streams, such as interchange revenue and transaction fees, which contribute to the company's bottom line.
