SMS, mobile app, or web?
PIN by SMS
The PIN by SMS is a cost-effective method that requires neither an internet connection nor a smartphone to deliver a PIN.
PIN by APP
The PIN by App function is embedded within a mobile banking application to receive the PIN. Cardholders already familiar with an application won't be lost when the PIN distribution by the app is offered as a new added-value service.
PIN by WEB
The PIN by Web function is integrated into a bank's website to provide the PIN online. Using the same familiar web interface makes it more convenient for end-users and also a way to help drive traffic.
Switching from paper to SMS for sending PIN codes can significantly lower your carbon footprint; an SMS emits just 0.00432g CO2e, while a letter produces 26g CO2e, as highlighted by Firetext.
PIN definition: Let your customers choose
their card PIN
A PIN is a secret numeric password shared between the user and the issuing institution. Typically composed of 4 to 6 digits, the PIN is used to authenticate the user during electronic transactions, especially at ATMs and during point-of-sale (POS) purchases, ensuring an added layer of security.
PIN Definition allows cardholders to define their new card's PIN through a mobile banking application or website. This self-select PIN option means they can pick a memorable code for their credit card. It also helps cut costs for banks as they get fewer calls to their helpdesk and fewer cards blocked.
So, setting a PIN that can easily be recalled makes transactions a breeze!
Notification Services: track your card delivery
The Notification Services are linked to card production and based on card status. For example, this allows cardholders to be informed in real-time of the status of their card delivery with an SMS notifying them when their card has been dispatched.
Banks can also leverage this service to initiate the delivery of the PIN code to the cardholder.
A secure and certified card PIN service
The credit card PIN is the "what you have" factor and, like a signature, the key to authenticate the cardholder and to help protect them against fraud.
That's why the Thales Gemalto Digital PIN is a secure and certified service:
