Card issuing isn’t limited to big banks anymore. Technology companies, small and mid-sized enterprises, and regional business groups (not to mention modern neobanks) are all seeing the value of launching payment cards and other financial products.
Democratization of the financial industry is driven primarily by software companies that have seen the writing on the wall — and can promise the new generation of financial services providers an easy path to launching complicated products.
Kard and Hydrogen’s new partnership will enable organizations to quickly offer rewards and cash-back in a seamless way, and with a great user experience for the cardholders. Hydrogen’s no-code platform takes the pain out of adding debit products to almost any business, with a fully orchestrated and bundled offering. When this is combined with Kard’s reward platform, which manages the relationships with the merchants and facilitates transaction matching and payments to the card issuers, companies are empowered with the only card-linked rewards offering that can be embedded in any app or site, and deployed immediately.
“Kard’s merchant network and software infrastructure have integrated nicely with our no-code platform, making it easy for our customers to quickly get to market and offer merchant rewards to their consumers.”Matt Kane, co-founder and CEO of Hydrogen
“Hydrogen’s no-code approach opens up doors for a huge variety of customers to launch fintech products in general, not to mention rewards with us. We’re excited to work with a team that has a similar vision of a democratized fintech industry, providing end cardholders with unique and compelling experiences.”Ben Mackinnon, CEO and founder of Kard
