10 October 2012 – Prepaid International Forum (PIF) has produced a concise introduction to prepaid in its new White Paper, ‘Prepaid: Issues, Economics & Growth’. The paper forms part of PIF’s drive to promote understanding, of who issues prepaid products and how they are used, to regulators, consumer bodies and the media.
The paper has been produced in consultation with PIF members and other industry experts. It provides an overview of prepaid in selected markets with references to how prepaid products are used by consumers, government bodies and corporations and considers the drivers behind the various products. The paper also sets out the factors that are currently impacting prepaid business models, from potential increased competition to fraud and public scrutiny. The paper begins by considering the latest definition of e-money within the context of prepaid and explains the rationale behind current e-money regulations.
