Why you should keep your loyalty cards in your wallet

The loyalty card is a part of our daily life, whether during our shopping or even an unexpected purchase. A few savings on your credit card won't hurt you. Whether you use Maestro, Mastercard, Visa, a discount from your favorite merchant will brighten your day. But why store your loyalty card in a wallet? What's the use for the customer or the merchant?

To begin with, what is a wallet?

A wallet is a digital wallet or purse. The difference from a basic (or physical) wallet is the space. Mostly associated with cryptocurrency and its mining, a wallet can be divided into several categories: the storage wallet, to keep your savings; the wallet acting as a quick payment solution when making a credit card payment for your shopping; the wallet for mining, storing, and trading cryptocurrency; and the wallet for storing loyalty points acquired in physical stores and e-commerce.

Why Store Your Loyalty Card in a Wallet?

Storing your loyalty card in a wallet boils down to saving time, money, and a lot of space. Especially in terms of storage, where accumulation is effortless. Moreover, the wallet provides you with payment solutions, such as using a prepaid card or an online card belonging to your bank.

Revolut uses this system to make payments on various online platforms. For those who use public transport like the metro, RER, or buses, it's a straightforward way to present your travel pass.

Additionally, in terms of health, contactless payment will be favored over cash or physical cards. The conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic don't help the economic and financial situation of our partners or the purchasing power of the French population, even with loyalty cards. As for security, Lyzi promises you a form of security that is foolproof, especially regarding your payment cards and transactions.


Paying for your purchases with an easy solution like the Lyzi app guarantees you a better consumer life. Also, using your phone in an additional situation... might not be the best decision for our environment.
