Atlanta-based Brightwell offers prepaid solutions for consumers and businesses with products ranging from maritime payments to payroll to loyalty schemes. Speaking during an interview in the Finetics™ Studio by The Bancorp at Money 20/20 in Las Vegas, Ken Goins, Vice Chairman of Brightwell, shared his insights on the challenges and opportunity of prepaid in cross border payments.
“Prepaid is just part of a process, it’s a component,” says Goins. “What we’ve determined is that it’s the best defined way of using that vehicle today and over time change will happen in this industry. The card is a form factor and something else will replace it. It could be mobile or it could be something else. The plastic itself or card is just a form factor in how you deliver money or a service to a cardholder.”
