WestStein Prepaid Card: Key Benefits
The main difference between a prepaid carrier and a debit carrier is autonomy and confidentiality. A prepaid card is not linked to your main bank account and is intended not for storage, but for spending money.
Its convenience lies in a fixed limit on purchases and the absence of a credit part – so its holder does not spend more than he wanted. Experts recommend replenishing such “plastic” immediately before shopping, in order to avoid force majeure situations.
At the same time, a free online account is protected no worse than any bank account. Its holder can freely implement monetary transactions, make international transfers, receive wages in foreign currency (euro) and control all monetary manipulations.
