We recently launched a Living Roadmap on our Backstage Community Forum. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at payment cards we’re working on for Debut.
In this spotlight, we take look at Virtual Cards inside of Debut.
You’ll likely have used your bank card to pay for things online, like something flash from ASOS, your Disney+ subscription or cloud storage for all those photos of your cat. All of these things, from online shopping to dinner with friends are often on the same card, so when it expires, or you lose it – or worse – it means you can no longer pay for things until you get a new card.
Instantly generate a new virtual card whenever you need it for online and real-world contactless payments. Generate a card for your family’s growing number of streaming services or create a new one purely to make a one-off purchase for that cool thing you saw on Instagram.
If you use one card for everything, it only takes one dodgy website leak to expose your card details to the internet. Set up virtual cards with spending notifications, spending limits and auto-delete. You can also pause or delete a card at any time.
With just a tap, you can restrict a card from being used overseas, online or in stores. Set up safety limits to prevent large transactions and approval notifications so you can make sure there’s no funny business.
Understand where your money is going and spot trends to stay on top of your spending. See all your transactions for a card.
Use your virtual cards for anything online by securely accessing your card details from the app or by using Apple Pay or Google Pay. Use your card in shops using contactless payments.
As you might expect, your real-world Debut card lets you pay for things like a normal debit card, and it’s ready for contactless payments out of the box. Many of the smart features also apply to your real-world card, like being able to see all of your transactions in one place, notifications and the ability to set controls, pause or deactivate your card.
There’s heaps more news and information still to come. What would you like to hear about next? Get in touch in the comments or send me an email.
