To help minimise possible fraud or abuse of the NETS Prepaid Card if it is misplaced, users can lock the card with the simple tap of a button on the NETS App. Locking and unlocking the card takes effect immediately and there is also an option to permanently terminate the NETS Prepaid Card to refund the stored value.
Lawrence Chan, Group CEO of NETS said, “The NETS Prepaid Card is part of our continued effort to connect communities and empower lives. Families will be empowered to take control of daily expenses as they can provide their dependants and domestic helper with contactless payment options that can be easily tracked. Additionally, this card can be quickly disabled if it is lost. This card is most valuable as it can be used at all NETS acceptance points and mass transit.”
The perfect card for retail and as a gift for friends and family
The NETS Prepaid Card is also an excellent gifting card as consumers can spend at any NETS accepting merchants for shopping or for public transport. Users are also not limited to fixed denominations in their gift cards and can top up auspicious numbers like $88, up to a cap of $100 per top-up.
Whether it be a nice cup of coffee at a café, some additional groceries at the supermarket, or a shopping spree at a nearby mall, the ubiquitous acceptance means that recipients of the NETS Prepaid gift card can spend it on their preferred options. From S$5, users can also customise the card face of their NETS Prepaid Cards at www.customcards.com.sg/nets-prepaid-card/.
Hassle-free purchase, smooth public transport travel
Additionally, the NETS Prepaid Card can be used for public transport, allowing commuters to top up the card on-the-go instead of spending time queuing at physical top-up machines. The NETS Prepaid Card can also be topped up and managed via the NETS App, available on both Google Play and Apple App Store. Through the NETS App, users can also set up automatic top-ups for the card to ensure that there are always sufficient funds for their daily commute.
There is no minimum age or income requirement, no annual subscription fees and no credit checks for the purchase of the NETS Prepaid Card. Consumers can purchase the NETS Prepaid Card at 7-Eleven convenience stores, Buzz, Japan Home, Mustafa, Sir Handphone, TransitLink Ticket Offices at MRT stations and bus interchanges, NETS Customer Service Centre as well as Lazada and Shopee. The card will also be sold at Sunshine Star and J.B.I Trading from December onwards.
