INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Bank Bukopin accelerates the transfer of debit cards in the form of chips for data security during transactions anywhere. The target of 300,000 targeted cards will be migrated until the end of this year from a total of 800 thousand in circulation.

Bank Bukopin's Consumer Director, Rivan A Purwantoro said, what he did was aligned with the government and Bank Indonesia programs in the National Standard Indonesian Chip Card Specification (NSICCS) program.

"Now only 10 thousands have already been chiped in from Bank Bukopin's customers with a target of 300 thousand," he said in Jakarta, Thursday (09/20/2018).

To accelerate the target, he continued, Bank Bukopin established a partnership with Mastercard in providing Bukopin Mastercard debit cards. The card target is 600 thousand cards to be circulated.

He hopes that the debit card will be used for transactions at available stop merchants. Even though cash withdrawals are still needed because there may be a stop that doesn't have an EDC machine.

"Withdrawing money at ATMs doesn't cost much," he said.
