Money 20/20—Booth 1025- CPI Card Group (Nasdaq:PMTS, TSX:PNT), a global leader in financial and EMV® chip card production and related services, today announced enhancements to its MYCA card ordering system that expand the gift card options available to program managers and financial institutions. CPI customers now have the ability to order and fulfill open-loop digital gift cards, which are delivered electronically through the MYCA platform and can be redeemed online.

The newly announced enhancements allow prepaid program managers to offer the option of physical or digital cards as part of their omni-channel gift, reward and incentive, and rebate programs. Consumers simply use the convenient online interface offered by MYCA to choose between a physical card delivered by mail and a digital card delivered to their email.

"With our enhancements to MYCA, CPI Card Group has eliminated significant hindrances on gift card functionality, chief among them that historically, open-loop cards were not available in a digital format," said Lane Dubin, senior vice president of sales and marketing at CPI Card Group. "Consumer choice between physical and digital cards is becoming increasingly important to our customers, and now we can provide that flexibility alongside an easy-to-use interface that simplifies the customer journey."

MYCA is a turnkey B2B software solution used by financial institutions, program managers, and merchants to design and order payment cards. The platform, which supports bulk card ordering and multi-currency and multi-language programs, can be integrated seamlessly into customers' existing websites. Additionally, the software's hierarchical structure enables fast onboarding of new programs, increasing speed to market.

CPI Card Group offers a free ebook that discusses prepaid card program opportunities. You can find the ebook on the company's blog:
