How is the Vivid Prepaid Mastercard different from a credit card?
A credit card is a payment card that is issued by a bank (the card issuer). The card issuer will grant a revolving line of credit to the cardholder. The cardholder can utilise up to the full extent of the revolving line of credit. The cardholder will have to pay the amount used and interest at specific interval as stipulated under the card agreement.

The Vivid Prepaid Mastercard is a payment card issued by Singapura Finance and MatchMove Pay Pte Ltd.

The money used is deducted from the amount loaded and there is no need for the cardholder to “repay” the money or interest.


What is the advantage of having a Vivid Prepaid Mastercard as compared to a credit card/debit card?
The main advantage of a prepaid card is that in the event that a prepaid card is stolen or the account hacked into, the amount of loss is limited to the amount remaining on the card unlike in the case of a credit card where the loss can be up to the full amount of the credit limit un-utilised or the full amount in the savings account in the case of a debit card.
