About Your Pockit account and card
What is a Pockit MasterCard ?
A Pockit MasterCard card looks like a credit or debit card, with a card number, chip & pin and signature strip. However, it does not provide a source of credit.
So, it helps you to spend only the amount you have chosen to pay in while offering some of the same great facilities as bankcards, such as an account number and sort code, helping you to stay in complete control.
You can use the Pockit MasterCard at over 35 million locations and withdraw cash from over 1.9 million cash machines worldwide – wherever you see the MasterCard Acceptance mark.
Is there a minimum age to become a Pockit account holder ?
Yes, all primary accountholders must be at least 18 years old. However, you can add additional cardholders, also known as secondary cardholders (minimum age 13).
Who provides the Pockit account and MasterCard ?
The Pockit account and MasterCard card are provided by Pockit Limited.
The card is issued by Wirecard Card Solutions Limited pursuant to license from MasterCard International Incorporated.
When will I receive my Pockit MasterCard ?
Your card should arrive within 3 to 5 working days of you completing your sign up on Pockit.com.
Can I get additional Pockit MasterCards for other family members ?
You can have up to 3 additional Pockit MasterCards linked to your primary card (i.e. 4 cards in total). The additional MasterCards must be in someone else’s name. You can apply for an additional MasterCard by clicking on the ‘Additional Cards’ tab in your online account
Additional Pockit MasterCards cost 99p each, which will be taken directly from your main Pockit account balance. Please note that additional MasterCards are not available for Simple Limits Accounts. For more information, click here .
How do I load my separate balance additional card?
The primary account must be loaded first and then the primary account holder can transfer funds using the “move money” option online or through the app.

Wages and benefits
Wages, benefits or pensions can be paid directly into your Pockit Account. To have wages, benefits or pensions paid directly into your Pockit account you will need to instruct your employer or any third party and provide them with your Pockit account details (See above in BACS).

What is 3D secure?
3D Secure makes online shopping transactions safer by authenticating a cardholder's identity at the time of purchase, through a Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code. Pockit cards are not yet enrolled on 3D secure. Therefore, you may find that some websites will not allow you to place an online order. To have more information about our security features, click here .
Simple Limits Cards
Simple Limits Accounts are issued to customers whose identity and address could not be automatically verified. There may be many reasons for this, such as a recent change of address.
A Simple Limits Account works just like a Full Limit Card. The key difference is that the amount of money you can pay into your account is restricted to a lower level and depositing via Debit Card is not permitted. For full details on Simple Limits accounts click here .

Account Security:
How safe is my money?
Pockit is an electronic money product and, although it is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, it is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. No other compensation scheme exists to cover losses claimed in connection with Pockit.
As a responsible e­money issuer, Wirecard Card Solutions Limited ensures that once it has received your funds they are deposited in a secure account, specifically for the purpose of redeeming transactions made through Pockit.
In the unlikely event that Wirecard Card Solutions Limited becomes insolvent, funds that you have paid in, which have arrived and been deposited with Wirecard Card Solutions Limited are protected against the claims made by creditors.
What is Phishing and how do I avoid it?
Phishing is a way of attempting to acquire sensitive information. We will never send an email to an accountholder requesting security or any other confidential information about their Pockit Account. If you receive an email claiming to be from Pockit Limited or Wirecard Card Solutions Limited with a link to what appears to be the Pockit or Wirecard website, do not enter your personal or Pockit details. Never reply to any such emails or disclose any personal information on such websites.
If you think you have received a fraudulent email, please forward the entire email including the header and footer to [email protected]
