UniCredit switches to Mastercard Touch Card


UniCredit has announced it is upgrading all its debit, credit and prepaid cards to Mastercard Touch Card™, which includes features for blind and partially sighted people. 


UniCredit has stated that this comes as part of its partnership with Mastercard and looking to make its cards more accessible for people. 

Cards with this new feature are now available in Italy and will be gradually introduced over the course of 2024 to all clients in the twelve countries where the bank operates, covering some 20 million cards. 

UniCredit has announced it is upgrading all its debit, credit and prepaid cards to Mastercard Touch Card™, which includes features for blind and partially sighted people.

 

The Mastercard Touch Card design is based on a system of side notches to help consumers identify the right card by touch alone. The distinct notch helps visually impaired customers differentiate between their payment cards. 

Moreover, the official announcement continues to state that the card is designed to increase independence for people with visual impairments while making online or in-store payments with their cards. Inclusion is an integral part of UniCredit’s culture and social strategy, and this initiative seeks to underscores the bank´s commitment to fostering a more inclusive, barrier-free society. 

Additonally, in line with the bank’s ESG principles, the card is also made from recycled PVC, with each product imprinted with a Mastercard Sustainable Card Badge, certifying its sustainability credentials.
