If you want cardholders to have access to Hydrogen cards instantly, then virtual cards are the perfect solution. As opposed to physical cards, which need to be shipped through the mail, virtual cards are available digitally. This allows the cardholder to use the cards as soon as they are funded!
Hydrogen contracts with the sponsor bank, processor, and Visa/Mastercard to allow you to create and manage virtual cards through our no-code components. We also take care of the PCI compliance needed to show the cardholder the PAN, expiry, and CVV digitally.
Virtual cards can be used anywhere that Visa or Mastercard (depending on the card product you use from Hydrogen) are accepted. They are perfect for digital transactions and payments. To use them in a store at a point of sale terminal, the virtual cards can be tokenized and added to a digital wallet from Apple, Google, and/or Samsung (only available in our consumer card programs).
The virtual cards can be branded with your logo, and you can select from 1 of 10 approved colors for the cards. You will be able to view and approve the virtual card proof in our card editor, before any end cardholder can access them. It's embedded finance, simplified!
