Zenith Bank (Ghana) Limited has become the first in Ghana to roll out the Eazypay GH Dual Card, combining the e-zwich and Gh-Link functions.
Powered by the Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems (GhIPSS), the Eazypay Card is accepted on all local bank ATMs, POS terminals and Hybrid terminals on the Gh-link platform as well as on local eCommerce platforms. It comes with a 3D secure authentication that provides additional security for payments made with the Gh-link option of the card only.
It is chip and pin enabled and has a validity period of two years. Customers also have the option of personalizing their card if they so desire.
In a statement issued by the bank, the Chief Executive Officer of GhIPSS, Mr. Archie Hesse, commended Zenith Bank for partnering with GhIPSS on this project and for championing the nation’s cashlite agenda.
On his part, the MD and CEO of Zenith Bank, Mr. Akindele Ogunranti noted that, “the innovation by GhIPSS to merge the two cards gives customers the opportunity to experience the ‘Power of two in one’. This means that, this single card can now perform functions that hitherto were done using two cards (e-zwich and Gh-link)”.
He further encouraged GhIPSS to continue to come up with more innovative digital products and services for the benefit of the Ghanaian populace. He added that Zenith Bank remains committed to partnering with GhIPSS on the roll out of future projects.
