More convenient than cash

Your Mastercard prepaid card is accepted everywhere Mastercard debit cards are accepted and you can even have your paycheck directly deposited to your registered card.

Easy to manage your finances

No more waiting in line for money orders. Use your Mastercard prepaid card to pay bills and manage your expenses.
