For this purpose, the customer tells the cashier or dials on the display of a payment terminal their mobile phone number.

Then the customer pays the amount (from 300 to 15,000 roubles) which will make the nominal value of the new card and within which the customer can further make payments through the Internet. After that, an SMS message with the details of the VISA virtual card is sent to the mobile phone which number was specified by the client.

The balance of funds not expended after the expiration of the card will automatically be transferred to an existing or specially opened customer account within the service "Payment Book CyberPlat®", available at These funds can be further used for settlements with a wide range of service providers, including mobile network operators.

Platina Bank's fee for issuing VISA virtual cards comprises 3.5% of its nominal value (not less than 25 roubles).
