Virtual Cards: The Secure and Convenient Way to Pay Online
Have you ever been worried about your credit card information being stolen when you make an online purchase? Or maybe you've been hesitant to sign up for a new service because you don't want to give out your credit card number. If so, then you're not alone.
Virtual cards are a great way to protect your privacy and security when making online payments. They're also a convenient way to make recurring payments.
What are virtual cards?
Virtual cards are a type of payment card that exists only in electronic form. They're not physical cards that you can hold in your hand, but rather a set of numbers that can be used to make payments online or in-app.
How do virtual cards work?
When you create a virtual card, you're given a unique card number, expiration date, and CVV code. This information is used to make payments online or in-app.
The best part about virtual cards is that they're disposable. Once you've made a purchase, the card can be deactivated and cannot be used again. This makes it very difficult for hackers to steal your credit card information.
What are the benefits of using virtual cards?
There are many benefits to using virtual cards, including:
