First Data Corp. Wednesday announced a system that will enable cardholders to reload Star-branded general-purpose prepaid debit cards at participating ATM and point-of-sale locations. Star is First Data's electronic funds transfer network. The system also enables cardholders to activate and initially load the card and conduct split-tender purchases at the point-of-sale. First Data did not reveal the names of participating ATM deployers, and the company did not provide immediate comment to CardLine. A "Star Reload" service icon displayed on participating cards, POS locations and ATMs will indicate to cardholders where they can use the service.
