What makes the Excelera Prepaid MasterCard so special?
You will ask yourself why our product is so different from other providers and even in comparison with Banking products. Our aim was from the beginning to provide a high-quality payment product with accessible prices and the utmost flexibility we could offer to our clients. The Excelera Prepaid MasterCard was the result of this effort. International validity, online payments, multiple load possibilities and extensive usage possibilities with different online platforms, spiced with low ATM fees thanks to our affiliate partners, an individual IBAN account number for each card and free Online Banking, makes our product so outstanding from competitors and easily competes with regular debit cards issued by banks.
The additional advantages of the prepaid environment provide our clients with a full scale payment product without obligations, penalties and late interest which does not let you down even in the worst financial situation. We will also never check your credit score, report to credit agencies or ask for your income within the legal set limits.
