About Us

Prepaidian is a venture-funded provider of Affinity Visa Prepaid Debit Cards headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware.

Prepaidian enables affinity groups of all kinds to offer their members several types of prepaid debit cards featuring the affinity group’s name and logo. Our affinity partners benefit by receiving a portion of the revenue generated by their cards.

Prepaidian and our partners are responsible for all aspects of the program, including card issuance, transaction processing, fraud management and customer service. All the affinity partner needs to do is endorse the card and facilitate access to its members for marketing.
