Wirecard: Prepaid (Virtual) Mastercard

Got the info from a local techies eGroup. A new service was launched that lets you use a Virtual Mastercard to purchase online, it is called Wirecard (https://www.wirecard.com/wirecard/app)

What is it?
“As easy as cash. As convenient as a card. Send money, receive money – worldwide and in real-time. Pay with your virtual MasterCard. Experience the advantages of convenient online access that is available 24 hours a day, worldwide. Our latest offer: receive an additional prepaid MasterCard.”

Now, how will you load money to your Prepaid Mastercard?
Currently, the only accept deposits made at Netopia Megamall, Lower Ground Floor
Mega A Building, SM Megamall, EDSA cor. Julia Vargas Ave. Mandaluyong City (soon at other Netopia branches, as posted in their website). Minimum deposit amount is US$15 or roughly Php720. They can also give you a plastic card, if you opt to have it (pamparami ng cards sa wallet).

My wishlist for Wirecard:
1. For them to accept bank deposits (via BDO, preferably);
2. For them to lower the minimum deposit amount to say, US$5 or US$10.

I just hope that with this new product, eCommerce in the Philippines will flourish.

  1. Hi there,

    Applying for a Wirecard Account is free. To get the virtual Mastercard (that will be attached to the Wirecard Account), the initial load is $10.00. Not $15 USD.

    We have change the venue of loading to this Netopia Branch: G/F CCP 154 (Cyberzone Area) SM City North Edsa, EDSA cor. North Ave. Brgy. Bagong Pag-asa, Quezon City. We are just doing his on a pilot test on this branch. And if proven successful, the plan is to role out to all the branches.

    Email me if you have inquiries about this new Internet Payment Service.

    Kind regards,

  2. good day!

    are you sure about this service? i tried to register via the wirecard website but they said they no longer accept sign-ups from the philippines due to fraud.

    i sent an email to netopia, but no reply. i even called them (cebu office) but the staff had no idea.

    can anybody help me with this? tnx.

    PS: i hope this works! the benefits are endless.

  3. I received an email from wirecard they said that they are not allowing new registrants from Philippines. Saka hindi narin sila mag o-operate dito. Ewan ko lang bakit dinaman kasi sinabi main reason.
