Vita Wallet adopts dLocal’s latest offering to issue branded virtual and physical prepaid cards to its twenty-five thousand plus users

Montevideo, September 21st, 2021 – dLocal, a technology-first payments platform enabling global enterprise merchants to connect with billions of consumers in emerging markets, announces the launch of dLocal’s Direct Issuing, a service enabling merchants to issue their own branded prepaid cards for online and in-store shopping in local currencies.

Chilean fintech, Vita Wallet, is among the first to embrace the latest dLocal product. “Our Vita Card product aims to give our clients the best possible customer experience. With our cards – issued in partnership with dLocal – people will be able to shop, pay their bills, cash out, or even make and receive international payments much faster and cheaper than they would through banks,” says Moisés Zambrano, CBO, and Founder of Vita Wallet.

Vita Wallet can instantly credit funds in local currencies, re-issue prepaid cards when expired, or block them when lost or stolen. Users can access their funds straight away. “Direct Issuing is part of our One dLocal integration. Through one API, one platform, and one contract, you can easily manage your users’ cards, send funds and approve payments with no extra hassle,” says Rodrigo Sanchez Prandi, SVP of Product, at dLocal.

dLocal’s Direct Issuing is a flexible option to make pay-outs. Companies with a supply-side user base, such as drivers and homeowners, or gig economy businesses, can issue revenue share payments in the form of prepaid cards. Funds can then be spent for services, products, groceries, gas, ATM withdrawals, utility bills, and more, without the need for a bank account.

dLocal’s Direct Issuing solution can also be used by merchants to build cash-reward loyalty solutions and cash-back incentive programs.
