Orange launches ‘Orange Cash’ – the UK’s first major contactless prepaid card

Last week Orange announced the launch of Orange Cash, the UK’s first major contactless prepaid MasterCard card. The announcement follows the launch of the Orange contactless credit card in 2010 and this year’s roll out of a commercial contactless mobile payments service on Orange.

Perfect for the first time bank card user, the Orange Cash prepaid card costs just £5 and can be loaded up to £5,000 with the peace of mind that you can never spend more than you load. Orange says that the card is ideal for students who want to manage their spending and for holidaymakers who want a hassle free, safe alternative to cash so they can focus on “kicking back and enjoying the sun”. Orange Cash prepaid cards can be loaded with money at over 22,000 shops and petrol stations across the UK with the PayPoint logo, at 12,000 Post Offices, over 450 Orange Retail stores and online on the Orange Cash website.

More importantly (for us) Orange Cash prepaid customers also benefit from the ease and convenience afforded by contactless technology. By simply holding their Orange Cash card close to a contactless reader, customers can pay for purchases of £15 and under without the hassle of loose change. Contactless payments offer a quicker and more convenient way to pay.

The prepaid card has been developed for Orange by PrePay Solutions, the UK and Europe’s leading prepaid services company.

Orange Cash also helps customers manage their money securely from their mobile while on the move. After registering their card, customers can access the main features of their Orange Cash account from their mobile to keep up to date on any transactions. In addition Orange Pay As You Go customers can manage their account just by texting 311. It’s also easy to top up an Orange Pay As You Go Phone from the Orange Cash account, while funds can also be transferred between Orange Cash cards.

Pippa Dunn, Vice President of Orange Propositions said: “We’re excited to be launching such an innovative product for UK consumers in the financial services space. With Orange Cash, users will not only benefit from the convenience and control our new contactless prepaid card will offer them, but the unique ability to collect and redeem rewards against future Orange products and services – helping them make their money really work for them each time they spend.”

    With this never-ending recession a growing number of individuals are being affected by credit card debt.

    Regrettably when times are good lots of people buy things
    as if there’s no tomorrow and have only themselves to blame. However, the main culprit is the financial institutions that urge people to enter into debt by providing them more credit and then don’t stop pursuing
    once you already have difficulties repaying!
