Green Dot Wins Tech Awards


Pasadena-based Green Dot Corporation says it has been chosen by Paybefore as a 2016 Pay Awards winner in three categories for its mobile bank account, GoBank, and industry-leading reload network, the Green Dot Network.

Paybefore is a leading information provider to prepaid, mobile and emerging payments industry professionals, offering news, commentary and analysis through its various media properties –, Pay News, Pay Gov, Pay Week, Pay Op-Ed, Pay Magazine, Pay Awards Magazine and Pay Connect, a global payments directory.

PayPal Cash, powered by Green Dot@the Register, was named Paybefore’s Judges’ Choice, a special category in the Pay Awards created to recognize outstanding programs from across the competition.

GoBank with MasterCard was named The Best Mobile App, which honors the best mobile platform supporting prepaid, loyalty or gift cards that enhances the cardholder experience and drives usage and retention.

GoBank with MasterCard was also recognized as Consumer Champion – the card that delivers the best consumer value proposition for features, functionality, service and price.

“Green Dot continues to focus on creating technology-powered financial products that deliver simple, convenient and easy-to-use solutions for our customers,” Steve Streit, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Green Dot, says about the awards. “We are proud to have received these distinctions and appreciate Paybefore’s recognition of our mission to reinvent personal banking for the masses.”

Paybefore says it has been recognizing excellence and innovation in payments for 10 years.

“Once again, we saw nominees from across the globe tackling payments problems with mastery and ingenuity,” says Loraine DeBonis, Paybefore editor-in-chief and chair of the judging panel. “From Silicon Valley startups to established powerhouses, the winners in this year’s competition reflect a dynamic industry with no sign of slowing its pace of expansion and change. We’re proud to recognize Green Dot Corporation’s contributions to advancing electronic payments.”

Green Dot’s GoBank and PayPal Cash are now vying for Best-in-Category distinctions, which will be announced during the Pay Awards ceremony on March 21, 2016, at the All Payments Expo in New Orleans. Visitors to the site will have a chance to vote on Best in Category through February 29.
