Attention, si vous aimez faire du shopping – en ligne! I’m a definite shopaholic at heart, mind and soul. But I also hate crowds, the humidity in Singapore and forgetting to bring my credit card out when I need it to pay for purchases. That’s why I stick to online shopping most of the time – no, wait – actually I kind of do all my shopping online, now that I think of it.
But what if you don’t have a credit card (maybe you’re too young to have one, or you need to get a supplementary card from your parents), or don’t want another one to fatten up your wallet further, but you’d still like to bag that online-exclusive discount? I have just the thing you need – MatchMove Wallet!
I’m really excited to present MatchMove Wallet to you today because it makes shopping such an incredible experience and comes with a whole bunch of benefits that normal credit cards don’t. First of all, let me introduce to you what MatchMove Wallet is all about.
MatchMove Wallet is ane-wallet prepaid American Express credit card that anyone above 18 can sign up for (if you’re below 18, you’ll need a guardian who meets the age criteria, that’s all). When you sign up for a MatchMove Wallet account, you get a virtual American Express Virtual Pay card with no credit/value in it. All you need to do is to add some money into this e-card, and then you can shop online using this card once the money has been credited (it takes a few processing days)! To cut it short, it’s kind of like a Nets card which can be used just like a credit card for online purchases!
I created an account and a card, and got some money topped up in it as well. Here’s a short tutorial on MatchMove Wallet, complete with screen shots (I’ve blurred my card number for security reasons):
Now that we’ve seen some extra features of MatchMove Wallet, let’s look at the main thing we’re in this for: the Virtual Pay. First thing to do: Get a card. Second thing to do: Enter your account details such as your mailing address and NRIC number and then verify your account.
Now that everything’s set, in goes the money! There are several ways to top up your American Express Virtual Pay card:
Now that you’ve seen how to set up your account and card, here’s why you might like to set up an account of your own:
- Because there’s no physical card, your wallet does not get heavier, and neither will you lose your credit card. This saves you a whole lot of trouble in getting a card cancelled.
- You only spend what you can afford. The American Express Virtual Pay credit card needs to be topped up before it can be used. So if you’re broke for that month, you don’t shop. It’s that simple, and it helps you to keep check on your expenditure!
- You reduce your chances of being a victim of credit card fraud. At present, every credit card comes with a 3-digit security code at the back. For the American Express Virtual Pay card, this code is generated online every time you want to make a purchase, and the code expires after about 10 minutes. After that, a new code will be generated for each subsequent purchase.
- The MatchMove Virtual Pay credit card can be used on any online merchant that accepts American Express. In the near future, other card networks like Visa and Mastercard will join in the MatchMove Wallet bandwagon too. This means that you can use this card to pay for a lot of your fashion and beauty purchases online!
The only drawback of MatchMove Wallet is that in order to use your American Express Virtual Pay credit card online, you’ll have to be logged in to your MatchMove Wallet account at the same time. I suppose you could also say this is an added security measure.
I hope you found the above tutorial and review useful. Whether MatchMove Wallet will survive the test of time, we’ll have to see. But now, it’s time for you to win something!
