TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- DCR Strategies Inc. and Group of Gold Line are pleased to announce the launch of the TruCash Reload Network via Gold Line reload stations nationwide on June 21, 2014. DCR Strategies Inc. is a leading Canadian provider of prepaid products under the brand name "TruCash". The Group of Gold Line (GL) is a Canadian company specializing in the research, development, marketing and worldwide distribution of telecommunication solutions and technology products.
Powered by MasterCard rePower, the TruCash Prepaid MasterCard is the first card that can be loaded by consumers at reload stations in Canada. With the launch of this program, Group of Gold Line has become the first to offer this function at their locations nationwide. TruCash will enable cardholders to load funds by simply using cash or other accepted forms of payment at participating Gold Line locations, then swiping their card through an electronic point-of-sale device at checkout. Reloads are securely processed through the MasterCard rePower Network in real time, giving cardholders access to their funds immediately.
TruCash has partnered with Home Trust to provide acquiring services and Carta Worldwide to provide processing.
"We are taking an already successful concept, the merchant reload network, and have added some unique twists to make prepaid more attractive for both consumers and businesses. Green Dot for instance has created a multi-million dollar business from such opportunities. We hope to hone in on this success by expanding our merchant network and adding new and exciting contactless payment possibilities for the future," said Diana Fletcher, President of DCR Strategies Inc./TruCash.
"Launching this great new prepaid MasterCard is a fantastic opportunity for us at Group of Gold Line to offer our customers yet another product that gets us closer to our goal of facilitating meaningful connections. The GLPrepaid MasterCard is an empowering tool for Canadians that wish to do secure online shopping, that are underserved or companies that wish to save money by using GLPrepaid as an alternative for their payroll. We are proud to offer it." says Ata Moeini, CEO and President of Group of Gold Line.
Brian Semkiw, CEO of Carta Worldwide said, "We are pleased to have been selected as a partner in this major initiative. Canada has never seen anything like this and we look forward to extending its capability into mobile account loading from a variety of methods, including contactless."
TruCash and Group of Gold Line already have a long history of successful partner projects. Most notably, the companies launched the Gold Line Prepaid Visa card last year. The card has all the convenience of a regular prepaid card as well as long distance calling capability.
