ICICI Bank has launched a new instant credit card that allows customers to make purchases without the use of a physical card.
The new facility from the Indian private sector bank allows customers to choose from a suite of credit cards and instantly receive a credit card number and other important details online.
Credit cards available include the bank's gemstone collection of Coral, Rubyx & Sapphiro; Ferrari Signature & Platinum cards and Unifare cards for metro transit services.
The facility is currently available through the bank's internet banking platform, but will also be available on its mobile banking application iMobile.
Customers can also make in-store payments using Samsung Pay.
Anup Bagchi, executive director at ICICI Bank, said: “At ICICI Bank, our philosophy is 'Ready for you. Ready for tomorrow', herein we are committed to offer innovative products and services to our customers at the fastest possible speed and with the highest level of convenience.
“The introduction of instant credit cards is an outcome of this vision.
“With the festive season just around the corner, there will be many interesting offers with online partners in various categories like shopping, travel and entertainment among others.
“We believe that this unique proposition, which is [the] first of its kind in the industry, will empower our customers to instantly get the credit card online in a few steps and immediately start transacting on e-commerce sites to take advantage of the offers.”
