The value can be accessed using a magnetic stripe embedded in the card, on which the card number is encoded; using radio-frequency identification RFID ; or by entering a code number, printed on the card, into a telephone or other numeric keypad or in the case of crypto currency, by signing over the value to another party.
There is no common name for stored-value cards, which are country or company specific. Department of the Treasury manages three stored-value card programs: Stored-value cards are most commonly used for low-value transactions, such as transit system farecards , telephone prepaid calling cards , cafeterias , or for micropayments in shops or vending machines.
They also have an advantage over most other payment cards in that when making, say, a purchase telecommunication facilities are not needed, which may be important in situations where the availability or reliability of these facilities are uncertain or costly, especially for low-value transactions.
A benefit to the merchant is that bank transaction fees are not incurred as the transaction is processed offline and there need not be a reference to the bank for processing. A limitation is that these cards cannot be used for online, telephone, mail order and other " card not present transactions ".

Closed system prepaid cards are cards issued by a merchant and may only be redeemed for purchases from the merchant. They are typically of fixed amounts and are commonly known as merchant gift cards or store cards. These cards are typically purchased to be used as gifts, and are increasingly replacing the traditional paper gift certificate.
Generally, few if any laws govern these types of cards. Card issuers or sellers are not required to obtain a license. As debts owed to consumers who purchased the card, these purchases remain on the books of a merchant as a liability rather than an asset. Consequently, gift certificates and merchant gift cards have fallen under state escheat or abandoned property laws APL. However, the emergence of closed system prepaid cards has blurred the applicability of APL.
North Carolina and Illinois have excluded these types of cards from APL provided the card has no expiration date or a service fee. Maine and Virginia require the issuer to pay the state when the cards are abandoned. In Connecticut an issuer is required to identify the residence of the gift card owner.
Since most merchant gift cards are anonymous, the residence of the card's owner is deemed to be the state's treasurer's office. Presently, no law requires a merchant to provide refunds for lost or stolen cards.
Whether a refund is possible is specified in an issuer's cardholder agreement. In addition, most closed system cards cannot be redeemed for cash. When a cardholder redeems all but an insignificant portion of the card on merchandise, that amount is generally lost and is a windfall gain for the issuing merchant. The merchant also obtains a windfall gain if a card has an expiry date and the cardholder fails to use the full value by that date.
Furthermore, the merchant has an interest-free use of the value until it is redeemed. Semi-closed system prepaid cards are similar to closed system prepaid cards. However, cardholders are permitted to redeem the cards at multiple merchants within a geographic area. These types of cards are issued by a third party, rather than the retailer who accepts the card.
Examples include university cards and mall gift cards. The laws governing these types of cards are unsettled. Depending on the state, the issuer may or may not be required to have a money transmitter license or other similar license.
