By Edil Corneille
Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB) has launched BisB Virtual Cards in line with its efforts to simplify money matters of the customer and transform the traditional banking experience. The bank has enabled customers to perform various banking transactions securely and seamlessly with the elimination of the requirement for physical cards. The benefits of the virtual cards remain the same with security provided for usage. The delivery time of cards has been cut down by the bank with the virtual card.
Changing the face of daily errands and the shopping experience, the Virtual Card is automatically stored in the BisB Mobile application once issued. It contains all the requisite customer details facilitating transactions.
The Virtual Cards are available for both potential and existing customers. New customers can apply for their choice of the bank’s selection of Debit, Credit, or Prepaid Cards via the BisB Mobile application and receive their card instantly. Similarly, existing customers can apply for the issuance of a virtual card against any of their existing Debit, Credit or Prepaid Cards.
“At BisB, we strive to simplify our customers money matters by constantly introducing new innovative solutions that will support them in their daily lives. With these virtual cards, we are offering new and existing customers a seamless transition to new digital payments methods, providing them with the golden opportunity to conduct transactions instantly and safely, for our entire line of products, be it our Debit, Credit or Prepaid Cards,” said Chief Retail Banking at BisB, Dalal Al Qais.
“With our newly launched ‘Virtual Card’ feature on BisB Mobile, we wanted to offer our customers the ultimate level of convenience, and an additional level of safety especially considering the risks of physical cards considering the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our customers will no longer need to wait for their card to be delivered and can instantly enjoy a fast, simple and secure payment experience, be it on online or Point of Sale transactions,” she added.
