Mastercard® prepaid cards

Quite simply, a Mastercard prepaid card is the easier way to pay.

Just load one with funds and use it for all the things you use cash for—shopping, bill payments, or everyday purchases — get the added convenience that cash doesn't offer.

What is a prepaid card?

A prepaid card is a payment card that can be loaded with money by you or someone else. You can then use the card to pay bills and make purchases at shops, by phone or over the internet. It's so easy - and more convenient and safer than cash*.

Which prepaid card is right for you?

From gift-giving to budgeting your money - there are many types of prepaid cards available for different purposes. Depending on which Brand Mark appears on your card, you can use your prepaid card to make purchases wherever MasterCard or Maestro cards are accepted.

What do I need to get a card?

You may need to provide proof of your identity and your address when applying for a prepaid card - but that's all. Everyone can get one - there are no credit checks or any other information that you need to provide.
