Changing lifestyle demographics, the need for more sophisticated products, the growth of online shopping and increasing levels of per capita income supported the growth of this market.

The new report "The Indian Prepaid and Debit Cards Market" by Timetric states that many Indian banks have been expanding their networks of automatic teller machines (ATMs) in order to develop their business. Part of this expansion has involved installing point of sale (POS) terminals, which are electronic data-capture swipe machines and accept both debit and credit card payments at retail outlets. With competitive pressures on both the prepaid and debit cards market, banks and issuers are developing marketing and pricing strategies with the aim of attracting larger customer bases. Offers such as cash-back, discounts for retail outlets, buy-one-get-one-free offers, rewards points, increasing daily limits for cash withdrawals and insurance coverage are some of the most common strategies that banks are providing to debit and prepaid card customers.
