Prepaid Day

What is Prepaid Day?

Prepaid Day May 9th Is it time to start thinking about prepaid as a mainstream, commonly held consumer payment vehicle?

Will it take its place in customers' wallets next to credit and debit cards?

Will it replace them? And as prepaid's profile increases, so does the regulatory scrutiny. Attend this special addition to Card Forum to better understand prepaid in the context of today's payments landscape, how it will impact your business, and what stake you should take in it.
