2. PREPAID PRODUCTS
Your Prepaid Product is a prepaid payment instrument which may be used to pay for goods and services at participating retailers that accept online Account payments or Payment Scheme branded Cards subject to there being sufficient funds on Your Account. As with any payment instrument, We cannot guarantee that a particular retailer will accept Your Prepaid Product – please check with the retailer before attempting the transaction if You are unsure.
Your Card is not a credit card, charge card or a debit card supported by a bank account and is not in any way connected to a bank account. You must ensure that you have sufficient funds on Your Account to pay for each purchase, payment or cash withdrawal using Your Prepaid Product. Your Prepaid Product is intended for use as a means of payment, and funds loaded onto Your Account do not constitute a deposit. You will not earn interest on the balance of Your Account. Your Prepaid Product will expire on the Expiry Date and will cease to work. Please see section 8 of this document for further information.
In some cases a Prepaid Product may be issued to You with a virtual IBAN, enabling you access to additional features associated with a payment account. A virtual IBAN is only related to Your Card Account and does not mean that You have a private bank account with us. At all times it is at our sole discretion whether or not a Prepaid Product will be issued to You with a virtual IBAN. We reserve the right at all times to change or revoke the assignment of an IBAN to Your Prepaid Product at any time and such a revocation is not considered to be a change to these Terms and Conditions. For further details please visit the Website or contact Customer Service.
When You receive Your Prepaid Product, it may be issued to You in an inactive state. If so, You will need to comply with Our instructions for activation of the Prepaid Product prior to use otherwise any transactions that You attempt to carry out may be declined.
3. IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED FOR PURCHASE OF PREPAID PRODUCTS
As the Prepaid Product is a regulated financial services product, We are required by law to hold certain information about You. We use this information to administer Your Account, and to help Us identify You and Your Account in the event that Your Card or Account details are lost or stolen. We only keep this information as long as is necessary and for the purposes described. Please see section 15 for more information.
In order to obtain a Prepaid Product, You must be at least 18 years old unless We provide You notification otherwise. We may require evidence of who You are and of Your address. We may ask You to provide some documentary evidence to prove this and/or We may carry out checks on You electronically.
When We carry out these checks, Your personal information may be disclosed to credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies. These agencies may keep a record of the information and a footprint may be left on Your credit file, although the footprint will denote that the search was not a credit check and was not carried out in support of a credit application. It is an identity check only, and will therefore have no adverse effect on Your credit rating.
Your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions will indicate to Us that You consent to the checks described in this agreement being undertaken.
Where permitted, You may request additional Cards linked to Your Account. You authorise Us to issue additional Cards and Card PINs to the additional cardholders and You authorise each additional cardholder to authorise transactions on Your behalf. At all times You remain wholly responsible for any fees or transactions associated with a Prepaid Product or an additional Card or the use or misuse of any Prepaid Product or additional Card.
This Agreement also applies to any additional Cards where applicable. You agree to communicate this Agreement to all cardholders before they start using an additional Card.
All information You provide to Us during the order process for a Prepaid Product or any time thereafter must be accurate and truthful. You must ensure that the information You provide Us or that is otherwise held in Your Account is always accurate and up to date and We shall not be liable for any loss arising out of Your failure to do so. We reserve the right to ask You at any time to confirm the accuracy of Your information or to provide documents or other evidence in order to verify the information You have provided Us.
5. HOW TO USE THE PREPAID PRODUCT
A Prepaid Product may only be used by the person to whom the Prepaid Product was issued. In the case of an additional Card, that Card may only be used by a person nominated by You. Prepaid Products are otherwise non-transferable, and You are not permitted to allow other persons to use Your Prepaid Product, for example by disclosing Your PIN or allowing them to use Your Card or Account details to purchase goods via the Internet. If Your Prepaid Product includes the use of a Payment Scheme branded payment card, prior to use of the payment card, You must sign the signature stripe located on the back.
We will be entitled to assume that a transaction was authorised by You where the magnetic stripe on Your Card was swiped or the Prepaid Product was placed in front of a contactless terminal to execute a payment; or the Card was inserted into a chip & PIN device; or the Prepaid Product PIN was entered; or a sales slip was signed; or relevant Account information was supplied to the retailer that allows them to process the transaction in the case of an Internet or other non-face-to-face transaction.
Once We have received Your instruction to proceed with a transaction, the transaction cannot be stopped or revoked. Once We have received Your payment instructions, We will make payments within a specified time period. We calculate that time from the date We receive your instruction and not the time You send it. Instructions which are not received on a business day will be deemed to have been received on the next business day. We will deduct the value of the transaction, plus any applicable fees and charges from the remaining balance of Your Account. The retailer or service provider that has accepted Your Prepaid Product for payment will normally receive payment within 5 working days.
Under normal circumstances, if any payment is attempted that exceeds the remaining value on Your Account, the transaction will be declined. However in certain circumstances, a transaction may take Your Account into a negative balance. We will deal with such instances on a case by case basis, but where there is an outstanding shortfall on the balance, You will be held wholly responsible for paying the outstanding amount. You agree to pay Us the outstanding amount immediately on demand and authorise Us to automatically debit such outstanding amount plus associated fees and costs from any top-ups You subsequently make to Your Account. Until Your Account is in good standing, We may restrict or suspend the use of Your Prepaid Product.
Under no circumstances whatsoever are You permitted to use Your Prepaid Product for the purposes of obtaining a cash advance or any other form of credit from Us. In circumstances where a loading transaction is authorised onto Your Account but We do not receive the funds associated with the Account load, You will be required to pay Us the outstanding amount associated with the Account load. If You do not comply with Our request in a reasonable amount of time, We may engage external parties to recover the outstanding amount from You or further pursue the matter in a court of law and You will be held responsible for any associated costs thereof.
If You use Your Prepaid Product for a transaction in a currency other than the currency that the Prepaid Product is denominated in, the transaction will be converted to the currency that the Prepaid Product is denominated in by the Payment Scheme network at a rate set by respective the Payment Scheme. The exchange rate varies throughout the day and is not set by Us; therefore We are not responsible for and cannot guarantee You will receive a favourable exchange rate. You can ask Us for information about the exchange rate used after the transaction has been completed by contacting Customer Services.
Normally, We will be able to support transactions 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. However, We cannot guarantee this will be the case, and in certain circumstances – for example a serious technical problem – We may be unable to receive or complete transactions.

Your Prepaid Product is not linked to a bank deposit account and is not a cheque guarantee card, charge card or credit card and is not permitted to be used as such, nor may it be used as evidence of identity.
In certain sectors, merchants such as car hire companies, hotels and other service providers will estimate the sum of money You may spend or for which You require authorisation. The estimate may be for more than the amount You spend or are charged. This means that some of the funds on Your Account may be held for up to 45 days and accordingly, You will not be able to spend this sum during this period. We cannot release such sum without authorisation from the merchant or service provider. Your Prepaid Product cannot be used in situations where it is not possible for the merchant or service provider to obtain online authorisation from Us that You have sufficient balance for the Transaction. For example: transactions on trains, ships and some in-flight purchases.
You are not permitted to use Your Account to aggregate payments for what we deem to be commercial purposes unless we explicitly provide you notice to the contrary. In particular, if Your Account receives loads from more than 5 third party money senders in any given 90 day period, We consider such use to be outside the scope of normal use of the Account. In such circumstances use of Your Account may be restricted and We reserve the right to terminate Our relationship with You immediately.
Without prejudice to section 6.3, it is strictly forbidden to send or receive payments from or to the Prepaid Product for any goods or services that are associated with or that we deem may facilitate illegal activities; or for any material which incites violence, hatred, racism; or for any material which is considered immoral or obscene; or for unregistered charity services, Ponzi schemes, or high yield investment programs.
We reserve the right, in Our sole discretion, to add categories of prohibited transactions by adding such categories to these Terms and Conditions and notifying You thereof.
Use of a Prepaid Product may further be restricted without notice if suspicious, fraudulent, high risk or illegal activities are identified or suspected, if We believe You have not complied with these Terms and Conditions, or in the event of exceptional circumstances which prohibit the normal operation of the Account.
Pursuant to our regulatory obligations We reserve the right at all times to decline applications from certain jurisdictions. During the Prepaid Product application process You will be informed of which jurisdictions we accept applications from (“Accepted Jurisdiction”). It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not use our services if You reside in a jurisdiction that is not an Accepted Jurisdiction. Should We become aware at any stage that You reside in a jurisdiction that is not an Accepted Jurisdiction, We reserve the right to suspend Your and/or close Your account and terminate this Agreement.

If We believe You have acted fraudulently, or if We believe You have intentionally or with gross negligence failed to keep Your Prepaid Product or its details safe at all times, We will hold You liable for all transactions and any associated fees.
If We reasonably believe that You have acted with reasonable care and have not acted fraudulently or with gross negligence, You will not be liable for any unauthorised transactions on Your Prepaid Product providing that You notify Us as soon as practicable if Your Card has been lost or stolen or You believe Your Account has been compromised.
After You have notified Us of the loss, theft or risk of misuse, and providing that We are able to identify Your Card or Account and satisfy certain security checks, We may issue a replacement Prepaid Product and/or PIN to You. Certain fees may apply for the re-issue of a lost or stolen card, please see Appendix 1 for details. The cooling off period described in section 9.1 does not apply to replacement Prepaid Products.

We accept no responsibility for the quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services purchased by You with Your Prepaid Product. Any disputes which arise in connection with such purchases must be addressed directly with the merchant providing the relevant goods or services. Once You have used Your Prepaid Product to make a purchase, You cannot stop that Transaction. We are not liable for the failure of any merchant to honor Your Card or payment via Your Account.
If You believe You did not authorise a particular transaction You must notify Us of the issue immediately by contacting Customer Services. We may require You to provide details of Your complaint in writing.
If You do not tell Us within 13 months after an unauthorized Transaction was made You may not be entitled to a refund. No refund will be made until Our investigation is complete. We reserve the right not to refund sums to You if We believe that You have not acted in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
Subject to section 12.3 and providing that You have complied fully with this Agreement and not acted fraudulently or without reasonable care, You will not be liable for any unauthorized transactions incurred with Your Prepaid Product if You inform Us and cancel Your Prepaid Product immediately after becoming aware of the unauthorized use of Your Prepaid Product. At Our request, You shall provide factual elements and information relating to such circumstances. We will refund the amount of a transaction which Our reasonable investigations show has not been authorized by You. If Our reasonable investigations discover that the disputed transaction was not an unauthorized transaction or that You have failed to comply with this Agreement, including failing to follow any of the safeguards set out under section 10, We will not refund the disputed transaction and We will charge a security check fee as set out in Appendix 1.
In certain circumstances, a transaction will be initiated but not fully completed. Where this happens, this may result in the value of the transaction being deducted from Your Account balance and therefore unavailable for use – We refer to this as a “hanging authorization” or “block”. In these cases, You will need to contact Customer Services and present relevant evidence to show that the transaction has been cancelled or reversed.
Where a retailer provides a refund for any reason (for example, if You return the goods as faulty) it can take several days for the notification of the refund and the money itself to reach Us. As such, please allow 5-10 days from the date the refund was carried out for the refund to be applied to Your Account. Any refunds for goods or services purchased with Your Prepaid Product may only be returned as a credit to Your Account. You are not entitled to receive refunds in cash. Refunds to the Prepaid Product are only allowed for transactions previously made with the same Prepaid Product.

authorized. These circumstances include:

12.7.3if there is an outstanding shortfall on the balance of Your Account;
12.7.4 if We have reasonable grounds to believe You are acting in breach of this Agreement;
