Are you in the business of issuing or processing the countless varieties of plastic currency cards to people around the world?
Or have you ever wondered just how these little plastic cards work and what exactly makes them tick?
Credit cards have become a more viable alternative to cash, since they allow cardholders to purchase goods and services and then pay for them at a later date, with accrued interest if not paid at a certain point.
Cardholders are given a credit score based on how often and how soon they pay off their loan balances, and these scores are usually handled by a number of companies who specialize in calculating these scores.
Other companies handle more the processing side of credit and debit card use. These companies focus on what happens when you swipe your card in a card terminal.
This article will be focusing on one of those very companies: Netspend Corporation. Since the late 80s, NetSpend has been one of the leading debit card processing companies in the US.
