Pockit – Pre Paid Master Card


Pockit – Award Winning Online Account & MasterCard.  The challenge was to reach out to the financially excluded Africans in the UK, who rely on cash in the absence of bank accounts. The Promota with its partners were contracted for the maiden introduction of a number of product “refinements” such as  account numbers and sort codes, meaning that its accounts “now have all the attributes of an online current account”.

Simple, quick and transparent

Pockit is a prepaid MasterCard, not a bank. Applicants must be UK residents aged 18 or over. Subject to successful identity and residency verification.
