Why do they need a prepaid solution?

Many individuals in the UK are underserved by traditional high street banks; they may have a poor credit history or are simply unable to provide the 'comfort' that many banks require in order to open a bank account. The vast majority of transactions, for good and services are electronic, and therefore these consumers are being excluded and denied access to certain opportunities. ROK believes that all individuals deserve the right and ability to shop where they desire and pay for goods in an efficient (i.e. electronically by card or mobile) and cost effective way. ROK have developed their prepaid card programme to allow financial inclusion for all.
