$4.3 billion Marqeta is targeting a wider range of customers for its digital cards with a new 'tokenization-as-a-service' push
Summary List Placement Contactless payments have taken off amid the coronavirus pandemic, with consumers seeking out touch-free ways to pay. One of the world's most valuable fintechs is targeting that trend, looking to help companies distribute digital cards even if they aren't current customers. Marqeta, the card-issuing startup last valued at $4.3 billion, announced Tuesday it is now offering its digital card issuance tech to anyone. Described as "tokenization-as-a-service," any company that wants to be able to issue digital cards can use Marqeta's platform to do so, even if they're not already using the startup to issue or process their physical cards. Tokenization is a critical security element in digital payments. Sensitive information like card numbers are swapped out for other identifiers, or, tokenized. "Prior to this, we've worked primarily with customers where we were issuing the card and processing the cards as well," Kevin Doerr, chief product officer at Marqeta, told Business Insider. "Now we've enabled customers who don't have that relationship with us to still take advantage of the functionality and services that our API layer presents."
