dLocal announced the launch of dLocals Direct Issuing, a service enabling merchants to issue their own branded prepaid cardsfor online and in-store shopping in local currencies. Chilean fintech, Vita Wallet, is among the first to embrace the latest dLocal product. Vita Wallet can instantly credit funds in local currencies, re-issue prepaid cards when expired, or block them when lost or stolen. Users can access their funds straight away. dLocals Direct Issuing is a flexible option to make pay-outs. Companies with a supply-side user base, such as drivers and homeowners, or gig economy businesses, can issue revenue share payments in the form of prepaid cards. Funds can then be spent for services, products, groceries, gas, ATM withdrawals, utility bills, and more, without the need for a bank account. dLocals Direct Issuing solution can also be used by merchants to build cash-reward loyalty solutions and cash-back incentive programs.
