Punjab National Bank Launches Virtual Credit Card: This Is How It Works
The best part about this e-Card is that the consumers don’t need to carry this physically.
This e-Card can be used at any e-commerce platform or merchant website.
Use Made Easy By PNB Genie Mobile App
For getting the information about this PNB e-card, the customers can access it by clicking on the e-Credit Card facility in PNB Genie Mobile app.
The PNB Genie App also helps in activation of the card for International and domestic use.
Apart from that, it can also be used to set up the transaction limits for ATM, eCommerce and contactless payments.
The existing PNB customers can easily update their PNB Genie with the latest app available on Google play store and Apple’s app store to use the new feature.
After the merger of Union Bank Of India(UBI) and Oriental Bank Of Commerce(OBC) with PNB on 1 April 2020, it has become the second-largest nationalized bank of India considering the business and branch network.
