According to the latest ECB report, around 60% of fraud in 2012 resulted from remote payment, i.e. payments made via post, telephone or over the internet.
The solution offered by Anytime allows you to limit fraud to the amount deposited on the card.
The Visa card is an immediate debit card, meaning that the merchant who accepts the Anytime card must systematically question the available balance on the card. If the balance is insufficient, the transaction is declined.
When you wish to make a purchase over the internet or a remote telephone sale, fund the Anytime card for free via bank transfer. If you wish to make an emergency purchase, you can fund the Anytime card with your usual credit card (3,8% fee apply). The funds will then be available on the card within two minutes.
Choose the amount you wish to deposit on the card.There is no minimum required.
When you have made your purchases, the card will be debited and the available balance on the card will be weak, which will considerably reduce the risk of fraud.
