The company launched the service as part of its growth goals and with the aim of allowing consumers, particularly those without bank accounts, to access the digital economy and make online transactions.

The Visa prepaid card will also allow users to pay in both American dollars and Peruvian Soles. AstroPay is highly active within the gaming payments market.   Previously launched in the UK and now Peru, AstroPay plans to expand its prepaid card product across the rest of Latin America, targeting Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.   Guillermo Dotta, CTO & Chief Product Officer of AstroPay, said: “It is a great time for AstroPay to strengthen its position as a key player in Peru’s growing payments industry.   "Standing on our existing operations in the country, we are not only offering our existing and new users a simpler experience with their finances but also creating a frictionless experience for unbanked customers looking to enter the financial system.   “This launch is part of our continuous effort to deliver simple, safe and convenient solutions tailored to meet the needs of our loyal customers in all of Latin America.”   Gilberto Chaparro, General Manager for Visa Peru, said: "At Visa, we work with fintechs around the world to transform the digital payments industry and offer more and more people and businesses the benefits of digitalisation.”   Recently, AstroPay’s CEO, Mikael Lijtenstein, spoke to Gambling Insider about the business’ expansion plans, its service and what can be expected soon.
