Everything you need

Apto’s mobile SDKs make life easy. Leverage them in your mobile apps to handle card management with just a few lines of code. It’s also a piece of cake to match your brand’s look and feel.
Cardholder onboarding
You round up the users. They verify their phone and email, submit their PII, and accept the program disclosures. Apto handles the KYC, account creation and card issuance.
Card management
We make card management simple. Cardholders can view card details, activate physical cards, manage PINs, freeze and unfreeze cards, and request replacements.
Load funds
Users can connect an external debit card to fund their Apto card account. Transfers are real-time, free and help your cardholders load a balance to get started.
Cardholder support
We’re here to help. Our chatbot provides a first line of response to your cardholders. They can also request help by phone or email and expect a reply within 24 hours.

Full visibility

Apto’s dashboard gives you full visibility into your program, providing user, card, and transaction details in real time. We also provide webhooks and configurable reports as additional tools for powerful data delivery.
