Europay International launched a home page on the Internet, the worldwide computer network that links close to 50 million people.
Europay's home page aims to offer useful tips for cardholders, as well as information for the more than 7,000 banks served by the card association.
The World Wide Web site is divided into four main sections.
In the travel exchange section, cardholders will find a guide explaining the functions of the Europay brands, including those on debit cards, credit cards, and traveler's checks. The section also gives guidance on what travelers should do if their cards are lost or stolen.
A corporate news section will include the current annual report, press releases, and a member newsletter.
News about the advances being made in developing secure payment possibilities for on-line services will be included in the electronic commerce section.
The fourth section will list job opportunities within the organization.
