Orange Bank, which claims more than 1.1 million customers, announces new Mastercard cards and launches an offer aimed at families.
Orange Bank celebrates its three years, the service was launched at the end of 2017. We had already given a big overview of what mobile banking had to offer. Orange claims between 400,000 and 1.1 million customers, depending on whether or not you count the customers who have subscribed to the insurance offer (Orange Courtage). For this anniversary, Orange is taking the opportunity to develop its offer.
The new Mastercard cards and their new functions
The first change to note is the arrival of new Mastercard cards. These cards are… fluorescent. They therefore light up at night to be able to easily spot them.
These cards also bring new functions to Orange Bank offers, such as modification of the card’s PIN code from the application, strong authentication of Internet payments as well as simplified online purchases with a copy / paste function of the credit card number. As a reminder, it is a card with contactless payment that also supports Apple Pay and Google Pay.
If you have a Premium card, new services are also planned. Among the latter, purchasing insurance incorporating an extended warranty. This purchase guarantee is a service that can reimburse the cost of damaged items or repairs.
The Premium offer now includes Mastercard Travel Rewards, a system of cashback available worldwide, and Mastercard Priceless Cities which gives access to exclusive offers. As a reminder, it is a card that offers free payments and withdrawals anywhere in the world and exclusively 5% of cashback on Orange purchases and invoices.
An offer for the family
Orange also decides to tackle the market for children and adolescents between 10 and 18 years old. To do this, a new Premium Pack offer has been launched with a Premium card for the parent and a classic “Plus” card for the children.
Parents will be able to receive a notification for each child’s banking transaction, manage a daily spending limit, block / unblock the card remotely … but also make immediate transfers. Overdrafts are not possible and Orange announces no charges on this “child” account. The offer also includes an account with an IBAN, a suitable application, a piggy bank system to save money and of course payments on the internet and abroad.
