The icount Current Account with prepaid MasterCard is wholly owned by icount Money Limited and launched in August 2015 as a re-brand of the highly successful ClearCash Prepaid MasterCard, which originally launched in 2009. The service is offered in partnership with Advanced Payment Solutions (APS Financial Limited “AFL”), who market under the Cashplus brand who also service the accounts on behalf of icount.
Its aim is to offer a much needed alternative to standard banking facilities with additional services to assist with financial capability for a diverse range of the UK population.
Whilst originally branded ClearCash from 2009, the aim was to create a product that is easy to use and accessible to everybody* – including people with poor credit history or CCJs.
The partnership with APS Financial Limited (AFL) was formed and taken on by icount Money Limited in order to give cardholders increased functionality. Some of the extra features include:
- Instant Account Numbers and Sort Codes*
- Embossed cards
- Direct Debit facility*
- Up to four additional cardholders per account*
- Real Time loading at the Post Office
We offer two tariffs, Pay Monthly which is more cost effective for regular account use and Pay As You Go which is better for occasional use.
Another additional feature is access to a credit building facility which could improve your credit rating . This is called Creditbuilder™ and is provided by Advanced Payment Solutions Ltd (APS).
icount is a unique and dynamic company, who regularly work with our service provider APS on new features to make the icount Current Account with prepaid MasterCard even better.
