Airtel Uganda, in partnership with Mastercard, has unveiled its virtual debit card. Dubbed the ‘Airtel Money Mastercard’, the card is designed to offer Airtel Money customers a safe, convenient and secure platform to transact online globally.
The product is a virtual card which allows Airtel Money customers, including those without a bank account, to make payments to local and global online merchants that accept Mastercard. These include platforms like Netflix, Uber, Amazon, Google Play, AliExpress, Alibaba, while ensuring that the customer’s financial data is always secure and private. All transactions have a maximum charge of Shs1,000.
The card is attached to the Airtel Money subscriber’s wallet which means that the balance of your Airtel Money account is the balance of your Airtel Money Mastercard.
