Ask HN: How can I create a new credit card?
2 points by markrogowsky 39 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 1 comment
Am trying to understand how to create a credit card from scratch (a la what Brex did). What do I need technically? legally? banking-wise?

Would be delighted to be pointed in the direction of the right resources

MasterCard and Visa cards are issued by banks, so you'd need to have some kind of partnership agreement with a bank. For example, at the very bottom of Brex's home page[1], you'll find:

"The Brex Mastercard® Corporate Credit Card is issued by Emigrant Bank, Member FDIC."
