AstroPay has debuted it latest product in Europe.
European customers can now apply for a Visa debit card through the AstroPay app, which it said will be issued “instantly.”
This card can then be used to make payments both online and in-store via a “passthrough wallet in the end.”
Any store that accepts Visa will permit customers to use their balance, without the need for intermediaries.
“We are focused on constantly improving our solutions and providing our users with new digital payment services that are secure, seamless and convenient,” said Mikael Lijtenstein, AstroPay CEO.
“The new debit card will save people’s time and effort in making transactions wherever they are.”
Wallester, a white label card issuer, will provide the technology and enable transaction processing services on Visa for AstroPay users.
This move also expands the company’s user base and signifies a new partnership with Visa, Europe’s preferred payment network.
“Our partnership with VISA and Wallester advances our ambition to meet the unique needs of our users who remain at the centre of AstroPay’s work,” Lijtenstein said.
He added: “Working with Wallester allows us to launch a competitive product in record time and helps us accelerate our growth.”
Meanwhile, Wallester’s Technical Founder, Dmitri Logvinenko, commented: “The Wallester team is extremely excited that the cooperation with AstroPay has become such a successful and valuable experience for both companies.
“We are pleased that our product fully met the needs of AstroPay customers, who will now be able to make payments in a more convenient way, using effective solutions in practice.”
