Frequently Asked Questions

What is a prepaid card?

A prepaid card is a convenient way to manage your finances. Unlike a traditional debit or credit card, which requires a long and complex routing number and account number, prepaid cards come with their own unique sort code and account number that are easy to remember.

Additionally, prepaid cards can be used in a variety of ways, from making online purchases and paying bills to loading funds onto another card or bank account.

Finally, prepaid cards offer greater security and protection against fraud than traditional payment methods, making them the ideal choice for anyone who wants to stay on top of their finances while protecting themselves against potential problems. So if you're looking for a simple and secure way to manage your money, a prepaid card is the right choice for you.

How does a prepaid card work?

You signup for the card online and add money to your card via bank transfer, BACS or load cash through 28,000 Paypoint locations.

You can use your card to shop online and in-store, make faster payments, set up direct debits to pay your bills, send money abroad and more!

What is a prepaid account?

A prepaid account is a type of financial account that is funded in advance.

The account holder can then use the funds to make payments or purchase items in the future. Prepaid accounts are often used to manage expenses, such as utilities, mobile phone contracts, and TV license bills. They can also be used to make online purchases or to withdraw cash from a cash machine.

Prepaid accounts are an alternative to traditional checking and savings accounts, and they can be a helpful tool for budgeting and managing finances.
