Softcard Will Officially Close Down On March 31st, 2015

Recently Google acquired Softcard (originally called ISIS that had a name change for obvious reasons) which is a mobile payment application that directly competes with Apple pay & Samsung pay. We’ve know that Softcard would be shutting down soon, but we now have the final closing date: March 31st. If you have a Softcard account you should have received the following e-mail:

We are pleased to let you know that Google has acquired technology from Softcard to power the next generation of mobile wallets.

What does that mean for you? As of 3/31 your Softcard app will no longer work. You can continue to use the Softcard app until 3/31. After that your Account will be closed.

To keep using a digital wallet app download Google Wallet now.

Sincerely,

The Softcard Team

It’s still unclear what will happen to SoftServe customers that have increased loading limits on their serve accounts. We’ve speculated on that before (and I strongly recommend you read that link), but there is still no official word. We’ve reached out to American Express for comment, but they are yet to respond.

If you have any promotions with Softcard that haven’t posted (e.g $150 in Amazon giftcards or 4,000 in United miles) then I’d strongly recommend chasing these down before the service closes.

Hat tip to reader Chris
