What are the benefits of using a virtual card?
A virtual card is most launched by a financial company (E-Wallet company) not a bank in the Philippines. Unlike a physical card, the virtual card requires you to have a smart phone to run an app. Using the app, you can view and manage the card. One the app, you can check payment history, verify your payment using Otp code, secure your card by locking or unlocking. The thing that I like as many Filippinos do is that getting the card is most easy and right away at home. Some cards can be used for withdrawing cash not in an ATM but in some unique machines in the Philippines or outside of the Philippines. The last best thing is the safety of your card. No one can steal your card or you will leave the card inattention because it is on your phone. I can not guarantee if you leave your phone too, Lol. It is the benefits of using a virtual card.
