JAKARTA - PT Bank MNC Internasional Tbk (MNC Bank) launched two types of MNC Bank Debit Cards, namely the MNC GPN Debit Card and MNC Mastercard Debit Card to provide an easier, safer and more convenient transaction experience for customers. The launch took place at Center Point, MNC Center Kebon Sirih which was attended by MNC Bank President Director Mahdan, MNC Bank Director Rita Montagna, and Mastercard Indonesia Director Tommy Singgih this Thursday (27/2).
"We present this card to all MNC Bank customers to get a better transaction experience," MNC Bank President Director Mahdan told a news conference after the launch.
Mahdan explained, the debit card launched by MNC Bank today utilizes chip technology that is embedded in the ATM card so that it is safer compared to magnetic tape. In addition to using new technology, cards launched by MNC Bank can also utilize the GPN Debit and Mastercard Debit networks. The MNC GPN Debit Card can be used throughout the GPN ATM and EDC networks in Indonesia, while the MNC Mastercard Debit Card, besides being incorporated in the GPN network, can also be utilized abroad.
Mahdan continued, this launch is expected to contribute to the fulfillment of targets according to Bank Indonesia circular no. 17/52 / DKSP dated December 30, 2015. The circular sets a target of at least 80% of the total ATM Cards and / or Debit Cards issued that have used the national standard chip technology and 6 (six) digit online PIN before January 1, 2021. MNC Bank is confident of being able to reach the target, reflecting the achievement of the 2020 target that was reached in May 2019. So with the addition of the debit facility, he believes the target can be achieved more quickly since current conversion achievement already above 67%.
"With this collaboration, and the many advantages offered by chip technology on the MNC GPN Debit Card and MNC Mastercard Debit Card, we are confident that we can achieve the chip cards usage target set by Bank Indonesia," Mahdan said.
At the same time, Tommy Singgih, Mastercard Indonesia Director, who also attended the launching event, expressed his gratitude for the partnership with MNC Bank and shared information about the various benefits of the MNC Mastercard debit card for customers.
"Mastercard is proud to be one of MNC Bank's strategic partners in Indonesia. Both companies share the same vision in providing a safer and more convenient payment experience for cardholders. With Mastercard's extensive global merchant network and technology, MNC's Mastercard debit cards will provide card holders for better shopping and travel experiences, both domestic and abroad, in addition, the partnership between MNC Bank and Mastercard is a manifestation of the joint efforts of the two companies in helping the government's vision to create a non-cash society, as well as contributing to the digital economy and inclusive finance," said Tommy.
