GCB Bank Limited (GCB) has began issuing its instant ATM Readycash card at selected branches across the country. These cards are chip-based and very secured and has come to replace the mag-stripe cards in the system currently.

In all, 83 out of the 183 branches of the Bank, mostly in the regional capitals, market centres and district capitals are issuing out the proprietary cards on the spot. Out of the total, 29 branches are in the Greater Accra, 11 in Ashanti, 9 in Eastern and 7 each in Volta, Brong Ahafo and Central regions respectively.


In the Western region, there were six branches offering the service, with four in Northern, two in Upper East and one in Upper West regions. The Management of the Bank was working assiduously to extend the service to all branches for the convenience of customers.

The instant issuance of the GCB proprietary ATM cards was a major move under the Bank’s transformation and digitization programme.
The instant issuance will be extended to MasterCard and Visa Cards in due course.

The Bank has put measures in place where branches that were not current in the issuance of the cards instantly, collaborated with those providing the services for swift delivery.

The Managing Director of the Bank, Mr Anselm Ray Sowah, in a remarks, said “investment is being made to transform the Bank into a world-class one to delight customers.”

He said “the banking landscape is changing. A new wave of technology is revolutionising the way customers engage with their finances. From social to mobile capabilities, GCB is having to redirect the way we do business to deliver a better customer experience and remain competitive.”

He added that, with a networked branches of 183 across the country, GCB through digitization has grown to become the choice of all.
