DCR Strategies Inc. Partners with MasterCard(R) to Launch a Consumer-Friendly Prepaid Reload Service in Canada

The TruCash MasterCard Prepaid Card is the first card that can be loaded in Canada at TruCash reload stations through MasterCard rePower(TM).

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- DCR Strategies Inc., a leading Canadian provider of prepaid products under the brand name "TruCash," announced today it will launch a consumer-friendly solution that allows eligible cardholders to load funds onto prepaid cards at participating TruCash merchant locations. The TruCash Reload Network will accept card programs enrolled in MasterCard rePower. The TruCash Reload Network will officially launch on June 21, 2014 at Gold Line locations nationwide with full program execution at thousands of merchant locations to be completed later this year.

TruCash will enable cardholders to load funds by simply using cash or other accepted forms of payment at participating TruCash merchants, then swiping their card through an electronic point-of-sale device at checkout. Reloads are securely processed through the MasterCard rePower Network in real time, giving cardholders access to their funds immediately.

The MasterCard rePower Network continues to expand globally and is now available in five countries, making electronic payments and financial services more efficient and accessible for consumers. In Canada, MasterCard rePower is open to any issuer of reloadable prepaid card programs.

TruCash has partnered with Home Trust to provide acquiring services and Carta Worldwide to provide processing.

"We are taking an already successful concept, the merchant reload network, and have added some unique twists to make prepaid more attractive for both consumers and businesses. Green Dot for instance has created a multi-million dollar business from such opportunities. We hope to hone in on this success by expanding our merchant network and adding new and exciting contactless payment possibilities for the future," said Diana Fletcher, President of DCR Strategies Inc./TruCash.

"Prepaid cards are an important tool for many Canadians, offering financial inclusion and an unsurpassed level of flexibility and security compared to cash and cheques," said Tom McTague, MasterCard Canada's Vice President of Prepaid Products. "MasterCard is working hard to make prepaid products easier to use, and the TruCash Reload Network is an important step forward in these efforts."

Brian Semkiw, CEO of Carta Worldwide said, "We are pleased to have been selected as a partner in this major initiative. Canada has never seen anything like this and we look forward to extending its capability into mobile account loading from a variety of methods, including contactless."

"Launching this great new prepaid MasterCard is a fantastic opportunity for us at Group of Gold Line to offer our customers yet another product that gets us closer to our goal of facilitating meaningful connections. The GLPrepaid MasterCard is an empowering tool for Canadians that wish to do secure online shopping, that are underserved or companies that wish to save money by using GLPrepaid as an alternative for their payroll. We are proud to offer it." says Ata Moeini, CEO and President of Group of Gold Line.
