Last minute holiday shoppers have at least one reason to rejoice this year because their task just became a lot easier. According to the Prepaid Card Research, prepaid cards topped Canadian wish lists this holiday season because the cards can be widely used to buy exactly what the recipient wants. This data is in line with trends seen in the United States, where prepaid cards remain the most requested gift for the past twelve years and continue to grow in popularity. 

With a strong appetite for alternative financial solutions, Canadian companies are demanding new products and technologies that expand their point of sale and back-office payment options. Many companies are turning to prepaid card solutions, according to the latest CPPO corporate prepaid market study, with CAD$3.8 billion loaded onto open-loop cards in 2017 – a figure that has increased by more than 27 percent annually since 2015. 

The Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization (CPPO), the leading voice of the prepaid industry in Canada, hosted a one-day symposium in May to discuss the changing nature of the Canadian prepaid market.
