Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2015 -- The prepaid card market has a promising future in most of the countries chiefly due to its growing awareness and convenience of usage. As prepaid cards are not linked to the bank accounts of the consumers, there is no fear of paying overdraft charges to the banks. One of the major features which prepaid cards provide is that the consumers cannot exceed the amount of funds that is loaded onto them. Developing countries are accepting the prepaid cards more than the developed countries.
Prepaid cards are classified into open-loop and closed-loop prepaid cards. The demand for closed-loop prepaid cards is limited as they can be used only at some specific location. Therefore, these types of cards are widely used in developing countries. On the other hand, open-loop prepaid cards can be used everywhere where debit and credit cards are accepted and thus, they are used more often in developed countries but now developing countries are also accepting this category of prepaid cards. Major features, which open-loop provides is that they are accepted internationally and consumers need not carry cash everywhere so the risk of money being stolen is completely avoided.
