JetPay® Card Services Introduces MAC-- the Money Access Visa® Prepaid Card

JetPay® Corporation (“JetPay” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: JTPY), through JetPay Card Services, is pleased to introduce the MAC (Money Access VISA® Prepaid Card). The first phase of the MAC rollout begins today and will focus on employees and employers that are clients of JetPay’s payroll processing business, JetPay Payroll Services. Employees, friends, and families of these businesses will be invited to make MAC the card that they use to help them with their everyday shopping, budgeting, bill payment or other financial services needs.

MAC is a general purpose reloadable (GPR) prepaid card that behaves much like a checkless checking account with a compelling value proposition that will have broad appeal to consumers with or without a bank account. MAC has two pricing options which are being offered through JetPay’s payroll processing channel; MAC One and MAC Choice. MAC One is intended for those individuals that do not have a bank account and are in need of a payment card that can meet their every day purchasing, bill payment and financial services needs. MAC Choice is a perfect choice for those consumers that may have a bank account but need a great tool for budgeting, helping to manage household expenses, saving for that special need, or occasional funding for students. Both cards are reloadable and can accept deposits from employers, tax refunds, government payments and cash through the GreenDot network. Both cards also offer all the features today’s consumers expect from a leading prepaid card and can help cardholders save check-cashing and money transfer fees as well as give them a safe place to store and spend their money. With pricing at $1 a month or free depending on the option chosen and no swipe fees, MAC is the lowest-priced general purpose prepaid card of its kind available today.

MAC is a vision fulfilled for JetPay’s founder and Chairman, Bipin C. Shah. Mr. Shah describes his idea for the card as follows: “I wanted to make banking and purchasing services available equally to everyone in America. As long as the cardholder has access to any of the methods we offer to add funds to the card, they can realize the benefits of having MAC and have the convenience of using MAC anywhere Visa debit is accepted. This saves the cardholder unnecessary check cashing expenses and provides anyone who wants it with a bill payment and shopping card that is safe and secure.”

Ralph Bianco, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Card Services for JetPay, explains: “We are focused on developing and launching products that are designed for the takers and not the makers. MAC, as a brand, stands for social responsibility, a firm commitment to offering consumers a high value, high quality and low cost product and an equal commitment to customer service and support. Additional MAC programs are in development that will address the needs of consumers and businesses outside of our payroll processing channel and on a national scale. We have thoroughly tested MAC over the past few months with our employee, friends and family launch. We are very excited to make this initial announcement and look forward to future announcements on the expansion of the MAC program to additional segments and distribution channels.”

Existing customers of JetPay Payroll Services can learn more about the MAC program by calling 1-800-DO-MY-PAY or by going to: www.jetpaycard.com. Look for the additional announcements shortly on the expansion of the MAC program to include going direct to consumers, business-to-consumer, and business-to-business applications.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
