Globe Wireless announced an exclusive worldwide sales and marketing relationship with CrewCash to offer comprehensive prepaid solutions to the commercial maritime industry.
CrewCash and ShipMoney is a new prepaid Visa card program for captains and crew members. The program provides a cost effective alternative to the delivery of currency to ships. It is based on reducing the number of cash deliveries and the amount of cash held onboard.
CrewCash and ShipMoney is an alternative to cash-to-master programs and a new benefit to crew members. CrewCash works like any other Visa debit card and can be used anywhere in the world. Crew members can receive their pay, send money to family or friends, withdraw local currency at ATMs, make purchases and more.
CrewCash will make it easier for crew to receive their wages, is less expensive to convert to their home currency and is safer than carrying cash. CrewCash cardholders do not need a bank account and there is no credit check.
ShipMoney is a prepaid Visa purchasing card for captains. It provides them with a financial tool for provisions, emergency and other ship expenses. ShipMoney can be loaded and unloaded with funds anytime. It is fully customizable and can be configured to include or exclude ATM access, and can restrict merchants by merchant category codes. For example, ShipMoney cards can be restricted for use at casinos, massage parlors and other places captains should not be spending company funds. The Program includes real-time and downloadable expense reporting so corporate accounting will always be informed and in control.
