Teen-focused prepaid card market has become a fertile ground for growth for fintech firms
Fintech firms are targeting teens in the Emirati market to capitalize on the growing shift towards digital payment services. These firms are launching mobile apps and prepaid cards to boost financial literacy among teenagers.
In November 2022, Leap, a fintech startup firm, announced that the firm had launched its services in the Emirati market. The firm is providing kids with a prepaid card that is linked to their Leap account.
In September 2022, Verity, another fintech firm targeting kids and teens, announced that the firm had launched its banking app in the Emirates. The firm, like Leap, also provides kids and teens with a mobile app and prepaid card to build their personal finance skills.
Amid the growing competition in the teen-focused prepaid card segment, firms are also raising funding rounds to scale and expand their presence in the region.
In October 2022, Cashee, a UAE-based digital banking platform for teenagers, announced that the firm had raised US$3 million in a funding round. The fintech firm, which provides banking solutions and prepaid cards to teenagers, is planning to use the capital for expanding its presence in Saudi Arabia.
With many fintech firms looking to offer banking solutions to teens and kids in the region, the publisher expects the competition to further intensify over the next three to four years. This will also present buyout opportunities for larger players from the short to medium-term perspective.
Prepaid payment instrument providers are raising funding rounds to further accelerate their growth
The digital payment ecosystem is projected to record strong growth over the next three to four years in the UAE. To capitalize on this growth potential, prepaid payment instrument providers are raising fresh capital to accelerate their growth.
In November 2022, Pyypl, a UAE-based fintech, and prepaid payment instrument provider announced that the firm had raised US$20 million in a Series B round, with a potential to further extended the round due to strong interest among investors. The firm is planning to use the fresh capital to further expand its mobile-based financial services platform.
Since its Series A round, the firm claims to have grown at a significant rate, with the number of users increasing four times. Furthermore, the transaction volumes and revenues have also surged fourfold during the period. As of November 2022, the firm had raised a total of US$40 million, since its inception.
From the short to medium-term perspective, the firm is also expected to expand its operations across the Middle East and Africa region as it has already received authorization for three markets, and is preparing to enter an additional 12 markets.
Firms are forging strategic alliances to launch crypto prepaid cards in the United Arab Emirates
Cryptocurrency adoption has been growing consistently in the Emirati market and holders are seeking a simple way to redeem their investments. Consequently, cryptocurrency platforms are forging partnerships with payment providers, a trend that is evident around the world.
In October 2022, BitOasis, the Dubai-based cryptocurrency platform, announced that the firm had collaborated with Mastercard to launch a crypto prepaid card for holders in the MENA region. The crypto card allows crypto holders to use their digital tokens at point-of-sale terminals and e-commerce marketplaces. These cards are expected to hit the market in early 2023 once the firm gets regulatory approval.
With a growing population of consumers investing in cryptocurrencies across the MENA region, the publisher expects significant demand for crypto cards, which will subsequently support the growth of the overall industry from the short to medium-term perspective.
