FNBO Launches Instant Card Issuance to Digital Wallets

New Offering Delivers Instant Account Credentials Straight to Customers’ Digital Wallets

August 22, 2023, Omaha, Neb. – FNBO has announced the launch of its instant digital issuance capabilities in partnership with Visa, a world leader in digital payments. The technology solution enhances the customer experience by providing instant account credential delivery to a user’s mobile wallet in one seamless experience, without the need to download an app.

This offering enables users to receive a digital account number that is automatically loaded into their digital wallet after completing the credit card application and being approved. Customers can use their new card immediately from their existing mobile wallet, providing extra convenience and ease of access. FNBO is one of the first issuers to provide this service for its customers.

“In today’s culture of immediacy, speed to wallet is critical. We are excited to have partnered with Visa to create a solution through instant digital issuance that delivers account access with the touch of a fingertip,” said Jerry J. O’Flanagan, Executive Vice President at FNBO. “This new payment method represents an important step forward for FNBO, and we are thrilled to expand our capabilities as a credit card issuer. We are confident this offering will enhance the customer experience and reinforce our commitment to providing the best possible payment products to our customers.”

The application process can be launched through the use of a QR code with participating partners, and users are promptly notified and given instant digital access when approved.

“Creating a seamless experience is key in today’s fast-paced landscape,” said Tolan Steele, head of global core products at Visa. “Together with FNBO, we’re committed to creating innovative products like instant digital issuance for consumers’ digital wallets, while maintaining convenience and security.”
