August 19th, 2006, 06:20 AM #1Western Union PrePaid Debit card live on SAS
The Western Union Pre Paid Debit card program is now live on SAS
Auto Refill is on, reporting is Batch based (not live)
Lead based program, with a lead being a valid completed application for the card.
Why promote this card? There are an awful lot of people who would like to shop on line , but can't due to not having a credit card. The Western Union Pre Paid Debit card gives them the ability to shop online (amongst other services) and ensures they don't put themselves into Debt by allowing the user to only spend the amount of money they have deposited on the card. Promoting this card means getting more shoppers online for your other programs. Don't just think this program is limited to financial sites, not at all! This card can be promoted to visitors to your shopping sites, travel sites, price comparison sites and so on "Like what you see, no card to shop with, get the Western Union PrePaid Debit card"
Please note that only US residents can apply for a Western Union prepaid debit card so promotion of this program on sites that do not target US residents is not going to get a great deal of traction.
Please also note that the card and brand can not be promoted on sites that promote gambling, porn, hate, politics or religion.
Conversion from click to lead runs at 15%.

I'm sure this is a very fair program to affiliates, but I know several people who could use something like this and was concerned.
"There is a Monthly Account Maintenance Fee of $4.95 per month while the Card is in use and has a positive balance. If the balance of the Card is less than $4.95, the balance of the Card will be applied to the fee. "
-saw the pre-funded waiver, but still seems a little high
" A $2.00 fee will be assessed per call for live customer service assistance. "
" A Cash Advance Fee of $4.00 will be charged when using the Card to receive cash from a teller or non-ATM transaction."
-is it really a 'Cash Advance' if the card is pre-funded?
the other fees looked pretty standard

When I reviewed the cards in the same bracket (i.e. Debit cards with no credit check) the fees come out pretty much the same, each card has various fees.
The cash advance fee I think is related to funding the cards from things like Salary Deposits as the card can be set up to recieve payments from various sources, maybe cash advance isn't the best wording.
I pay around $5 per month and $4 per ATM pull to use an international card that allows me to do similar things and I'm quite happy to pay that to have easy access to my funds So I look at the WU card as being pretty cheap (granted I'm overseas so get nailed for that pleasure )
15% Click to Application Submission conversion I see as being a pretty solid indicator that the card is popular, Debit cards like this usually have a fairly short life span, 5-6 months before a person moves on to credit cards, they fill a gap in the market for people who are trying to get a credit card or don't want a card at that time.
