Millions of people across the world want to buy goods or services from U.S. online retailers but lack the proper payment method to get what they want. A solution many turn to is digital store gift cards. When the digital gift card from a particular store is obtained, one can place an order on this store’s website. This solution, however, is not very ideal.
The negatives of using gift cards are:
- Risky: gift code could be invalid or expired
- Expensive: balance left on the gift card goes to waste
- Impractical: managing many different gift cards
- Cumbersome: does not allow for spontaneous or urgent purchases
What if you could own just one virtual payment method that you can use anytime for ALL your online purchases in the U.S.? The US Unlocked Card is exactly what you need. The US Unlocked Card is a reloadable Visa prepaid debit card. These are the benefits of using one card as opposed to gift card vouchers:
- No balance will go to waste
- Add funds when needed
- Local top-up options
- Issued by a U.S. bank
- Comes with U.S. billing and shipping address
Access to U.S. Physical Goods
Cross-border shopping has increased tremendous popularity as people demand access to the U.S. eCommerce market due the best prices and trustworthy brand offering. However, many online U.S. retailers decline non-U.S. issued credit cards. Additionally, there are many countries where only a small percentage of people even own a credit card.
To make things even more complicated for the cross-border shopper, U.S. merchants require a U.S. billing address, as well as a U.S. shipping address and often demand that these addresses be the same. All US Unlocked Cards fulfill these requirements. They are all issued with a U.S. billing address. While registering for the US Unlocked Card, you are asked to select a U.S. shipping address from one of our certified shipping partners. The address you choose is both used as the billing address for the card as well as the shipping address for your order. Then, you reload it as many times as you would like and shop as often as you would like.
Access to U.S. Online Services
We live in an era of an abundance of online services ranging from streaming music, TV shows, and gaming. Unfortunately, non-U.S. consumers of online services run into the same roadblock as those for physical goods. They are unable to use their foreign credit cards on iTunes, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, HBO NOW, etc. (if they own a credit card at all) access online content. Gamers want access to the U.S. Xbox, Steam or Playstation store where the latest and greatest games launch first, where the offering is unlimited and much cheaper.
With the US Unlocked Card, you can sign up for ALL online services with just one card.
Say no to buying multiple gift cards for the different services you wish to use. Simply use the US Unlocked Card. Listen to your favorite artist on Apple Music. Watch a laugh-out- loud TV show on Hulu. Alternatively, re-read your most loved book with Amazon Kindle.
The US Unlocked Card gives you an unlimited peace of mind that gift cards can’t. You are free to use your card for the buying physical goods and online services in the U.S. WHERE EVER and WHENEVER you want.
Better yet, link your US Unlocked Card to a U.S. PayPal account for super fast and uber convenient shopping.
