Finally! Agency Co-Branded MasterCard or Visa International Debit Cards:
Agency Co-Branded Visa or MasterCards
Our online portal features fee-free to low-cost remittances
which includes money-in-minutes and multiple cash payout
locations. In order to take advantage of the SeaDeals
Remittance Gateway, seafarers and OFWs must have
international debit cards so that they may initiate money
transfers from wherever they are in the world. We issue the
cards through manning and employment agencies to workers
prior to their departure for their overseas assignments. The
name of your agency will be embossed under the name of your worker, but if ordering more than
10,000 per year, your cards may be co-branded with the name of your agency.
All cards come with SeaDeals Membership Benefits
SeaDeals is the premier international membership organization of seafarers and overseas foreign
workers. Our benefits include: international reloadable debit cards, SeaDeals E-Wallet Accounts featuring
actual bank accounts that allow bank to bank transfers, the SeaMall, the largest online outlet mall in the
world, international calling services, free email accounts, legal referral services, and the Remittance
Gateway, the worldwide online money transfer portal.
Fee-Free to Low-Cost Transfers
SeaDeals offers free to low-cost money in minutes convenient transfers, with a consistently higher rate than
retail money transfer operators. Also, as an alternative, SeaDeals Debit cards may be issued to relatives of
your workers, making transfers available free of charge, just by loading the card. Reloads may be done by
making a cash deposit in the SeaDeals E-Wallet Account. This is an actual bank account that supports the
debit card. If the workers have a bank account cards can be loaded bank to bank. If not, they can be
loaded through an authorized remittance company.
Unmatched Convenience and Value
Also, with the card, transfers can be paid to bank accounts or to over 10,000 locations in the
Philippines. SeaDeals members can now send money home without having to get cash from an
ATM, leave the ship or a work location, go to a retail store, stand in line and pay higher fees
because they are using cash.
SeaDeals saves workers hundreds of dollars over the course of each year. New members
sending from the USA get a number of free transfers. And, members not in the US can get
free-free transfers by sending through Exchange4Free!

Seafarers Rights, Benefits and Associations

other legal or medical issues.
The Heroes Fund
We set aside and donate $1 for from each new membership to the Heroes
Fund, which is set aside to fund first responders in the Philippines
whenever there is a typhoon or natural disaster. We will be working with
UNICEF for that program. Donations are collected at the first load of the
card.
SeaDeals/Agency Marketing Partnerships
SeaDeals offers a special membership marketing relationship with Manning
and Employment Agencies whereby agencies can earn $5 per new member
per year, each year as long as the member is in good standing with an
active SeaDeals International Debit Card. The card carries an automatic
annual access fee of $29.95, of which $5 will be paid to your agency
annually when the annual access fee is paid.
The SeaDeals MasterCard or Visa Debit Cards will be issued to seafarers by the agency prior to
deployment. These cards may be issued after deployment when the worker is already on assignment. In
either case, we provide the cards to the agency, which then has the responsibility of getting them delivered
to their individual workers. We can deliver cards to your agency within 30 days.
The card order must include: (1) a completed SeaDeals Membership Application; (2) required ID
documents; and (3) payment of $5.00USD per card. SeaDeals Members applications may be

We make it easy with PerCard Ordering – Send $5, get back $10!
SeaDeals PerCard Ordering System makes it easy to offer debit cards to your workers. There is no set
up fee or upfront fee of any kind. You simply order the cards you need when you need them. No need to
pay for expensive card inventory, program setup, or special licensing costs. Instead, PerCard fee is a onetime fee covering the card that you order and that fee is only $5.00 per card. And, it is a one-time cost that
is reimbursed to the agency after the worker loads the card with the first load of $40.00USD. That means
that for every $5.00USD you send, you will receive $10.00USD in 60 days, after the card is initially loaded
by the new member.

Please place your order once a week on the day of your choosing and the cards will be sent to
you via courier. There will be no funds on the cards when sent and all cards must be activated
and loaded with a minimum of $40 USD within 30 days of receiving them or they will be
automatically voided. The SeaDeals Annual Access fee is deducted from the initial $40 load and
sponsoring agencies will receive your funds within 30 days after they are captured.
