InstantPay, India’s leading open banking platform, today announced the launch of the InstantPay Cashback Card in partnership with NPCI and YES Bank. It is a premium, ‘future ready’ contactless card powered by RuPay that offers 1% unlimited cashback on most spends, so consumers can now grow their money, even when they spend.
The InstantPay card comes with a zero minimum balance requirement and has a maximum balance limit of Rs. 2 lakh, which makes it a perfect secondary account for everyday transactions of any individual. This also ensures that there is zero exposure to customers’ primary bank account. Corporates on the other hand can issue these as expense cards to their employees to effectively manage the travel, entertainment, and day to day business expenses while saving a lot of money with the cashback program. InstantPay offers an end-to-end expense management solution to such businesses.
The InstantPay RuPay Contactless Card is in line with the specifications of the National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) program that ensures that the customer gets a ‘One Card for all Payments’ experience. The card comes with various features and benefits including offers from leading merchants and a complimentary personal accident insurance coverage of upto 2 lakhs.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Shailendra Agarwal, CEO, InstantPay said, “The InstantPay Cashback Card is just not another card, it’s a disruptive product designed by InstantPay in partnership with the digital first YES Bank, and NPCI, India’s own and largest payments network. The card gives the customer security and freedom to transact digitally while earning cashback on spends. This launch is in line with our commitment of empowering more and more people to transact digitally and safely.”
