AstroPay unveils new Visa debit card product

AstroPay has launched a new Visa debit card as part of a new strategic partnership with payment provider.

Visa is the most widely accepted payment network in Europe and AstroPay hopes the move will help expand its reach.

The product will be available in Europe with launch in other markets expected in the next few months.

Users can now apply for a Visa debit card through the AstroPay app, which is issued instantly and can be used to make payments both online and in store by using a passthrough wallet in the end.

Users can also use their balance in any merchant that accepts Visa without the need for intermediaries.

“Our partnership with VISA and Wallester advances our ambition to meet the unique needs of our users who remain at the centre of AstroPay’s work,” AstroPay CEO Mikael Lijtenstein said.

“We are focused on constantly improving our solutions and providing our users with new digital payment services that are secure, seamless and convenient.

“The new debit card will save people’s time and effort in making transactions wherever they are.”

AstroPay works with white label card issuer Wallester to provide the tech that enables transaction processing services on Visa for AstroPay users.

“Working with Wallester allows us to launch a competitive product in record time and helps us accelerate our growth,” Lijtenstein added.

“Together, we co-create tech solutions and launch new innovative products to serve the needs of our users.”

Walletster technical founder Dmitri Logvinenko had this to say: “Wallester team is extremely excited that cooperation with AstroPay has become such a successful and valuable experience for both companies.

“We are pleased that our product fully met the needs of AstroPay customers, who will now be able to make payments in a more convenient way, using effective solutions in practice.

“Wallester is looking forward to new successful launches of innovative fintech products in partnership with AstroPay.”
