The last month of 2020 was an important one for Bankera, mainly because we fulfilled one of our long-term goals – started issuing Visa debit cards to Bankera’s personal clients. It was a massive milestone for us.
2020 was a significant year for Bankera. We have achieved some key milestones, such as launching Bankera wallet, becoming issuers of Visa cards, and offering business loans. However, this is just the beginning. The strong foundation we have now will allow us to speed-up the release of new functionalities in 2021.
This November has left a mark in Bankera’s history as the month when the first Bankera card transaction was completed. This was a symbolic finish point to one of the major goals we have been working on since the launch of Bankera – being able to issue cards on our own.
Becoming an issuer of payment cards has been one of our key objectives since starting Bankera. We have now successfully achieved this goal with our electronic money institution license holder Pervesk becoming the principal member of Visa card network. Direct membership in the Visa network will allow us to expand the variety of services offered for individual clients and digital businesses.
