Neocash is a prepaid MasterCard that can be purchased online or across France and used worldwide.
Centred on the French market, Neocash is a prepaid card solution that can be bought across the country or online and used at a wide range of merchants including gambling sites. It's offered by Neosurf in conjunction with MasterCard, which gives it all the benefits of operating without needing a bank account, but still allows withdrawals from compatible ATMs'.
How Neocash Works
There are 35,000 registered partner sites across France where Neocash cards can be purchased for immediate use. Available at tobacconists', garages and also online, customers simply charge the card with a set amount and can then use it as a regular MasterCard. Some 32 million places in 210 countries worldwide accept MasterCard and there are over 2 million ATM machines where cash can be withdrawn.
It can be used as a giftcard, or verified users can transfer cash between Neocash cards with no charge.
Using Neocash Online
Any merchant who accepts MasterCard can be paid using Neocash, including online shops, casinos and sportsbooks. Payments are made in the same way as any other debit card and will usually be instantly processed, as the funds are already loaded onto the card.
As Neocash isn't linked to a bank account, there is no requirement to pass on potentially sensitive personal details, but of course users must have sufficient funds loaded for a successful transaction.
