Blackhawk Network partners with MatchMove to launch Only 1® Mastercard Gift Card in Singapore
Only 1® Mastercard Gift Card enables those who do not have online banking or credit cards to shop at extensive merchants island-wide
Singapore, 15 January 2019 – MatchMove, one of the world’s fastest-growing and leading fintech companies, today announced that it has partnered with Blackhawk Network, a global financial technology company and a leader in connecting brands and people, to launch the “Only 1® Mastercard Gift Card” in Singapore. Powered by MatchMove’s proprietary Banking Wallet OSTM, Only 1® Mastercard Gift Card is perfect for smartphone users who do not have access to online banking, credit cards or other digital payment methods, or those who prefer not to use credit or debit cards but want to enjoy digital commerce. The payments solution lets users spend across e-commerce sites and brick-and-mortar shops island-wide where Mastercard is accepted while enjoying the unique “Dynamic CVC” security feature.
Students, domestic helpers and foreign workers in Singapore can purchase the gift card and use it at eligible merchants across Singapore where Mastercard is accepted. When shopping online, the Dynamic CVC feature enhances the security level of online payment where a new CVC code will be generated for each online transaction. In addition, digital payment methods allow users to keep track of their expenses via Only 1® Mastercard Gift Card’s website.
“We are pleased to partner with MatchMove on the launch of the Only 1® Mastercard Gift Card in Singapore,” said Nick Sadlier, Country Manager, Singapore, Blackhawk Network. “The Only 1® Mastercard Gift Card expands financial inclusion for the unbanked or cash customers, and enables them to enjoy the convenience of shopping online ― just in time for the festivities.”
