In 2016, credit card fraud increased by 13% to R374.4m, and debit card fraud by 3.1% for the same period (SABRIC). As online transactions grow in number and popularity, so too do the corresponding risks of gifting a website, retailer or service provider with credit card details. 

Another concern amidst the growth of digital payments and transactions is the large proportion of the unbanked population who don’t and can’t own credit cards – how can they transact? A safe and innovative solution is a virtual credit card – with profound benefits for both bank and customer.

Here we’ll explore how and why banks in emerging markets need to adopt a disruptive approach to new financial services.
