First Data announced that prepaid cards having the STAR-network brand, will now be able to be loaded and reloaded at participating STAR-network ATM and POS locations.
Prepaid cards having the STAR network logo (check the back of your card for a STAR network logo) will now be able to be activated and loaded and reloaded at participating STAR-network ATM and point of sale terminals. The new STAR RELOAD service icon denoting load/reload card capabilities will be displayed with the STAR brand on participating cards, merchant point-of-sale and ATM locations.
“The launch of this functionality clearly demonstrates the commitment to technology and higher security that First Data and STAR continue to make on behalf of STAR member financial institutions and general purpose prepaid issuers,” said Julie Saville, vice president, product development. “It’s another example of how First Data and STAR are enabling the full spectrum of profitable, secure payment transactions for card issuers and ATM deployers.”
STAR is a leading EFT network in the U.S. with more than 2 million retail and ATM locations. Check out PaymentsNews for more information.
