NEW YORK, February 22, 2019 – ECARD Inc, a New York City based FinTech has joined the prestigious Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA). ECARD Inc has been developed to specifically focus on the needs in the travel industry, particularly focused on travel to the Asian/Pacific Rim countries. The focus of ECARD is to allow travelers to transact globally using only one simple method of payment that is completely frictionless versus needing to adjust to different financial climates. The association with PATA has a secondary focus around those exchange students traveling to the USA from any Asian/Pacific Rim country as ECARD offers them the ability to have all their banking needs set-up prior to arrival in the USA for college studies. Utilizing advanced technologies, ECARD delivers a better, faster, and simpler manner to transact globally as well as the ability to purchase locally. ECARD is powered by UnionPay, the world’s largest card association and offers the most robust global rewards program in the industry. The UnionPay Rewards Program covers all segments of the retail industry from travel and entertainment to restaurants and all major retail shopping outlets. An important aspect of the UnionPay Rewards Program is that there is zero cost to join, unlike other card associations that might charge an annual fee.
