How does the card work?

The card is a prepaid Visa debit card, letting you load your own funds onto it via direct debit. You can also use the card to receive instant access to loans approved by MoneyMe. The card is issued by Cuscal and lets you access your funds in-store using a PIN and Visa payWave, and also online and overseas.

Features of the MoneyMe Express Visa Card

The card offers various features, including:

  • Secure access to your funds. Money that is loaded onto the card isn’t linked to your bank account, so offers you a safer way to spend. Verified by Visa keeps your transactions secure and you will not be held liable for unauthorised purchases.
  • Receive loans almost instantly. Bank processing times mean you can be waiting up to 24 hours to receive your loan. With your Express Visa card you can receive your loan seconds after approval.
  • Access to your funds 24/7. Your Express card gives you access to your funds anywhere that accepts Visa cards, anytime of the day or night. You can use your card to make purchases in-store or to withdraw cash at the ATM.

There are several fees and charges that you should take into account.

To receive the card and load funds:

  • $5 to load funds by direct credit facility
  • $10 to replace your card when there are none in stock
  • No card issue fee

      Hi Neil,

      You’ve come through to finder.com.au, a financial comparison service and not MoneyMe. You’ll need to get in contact with MoneyMe directly to find out if your card has been funded as we do not have direct access to your account.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Garry,

      Thanks for your question.

      This is not a credit card but a debit card through which you can receive MoneyMe loans – if you’d like to apply for one of these loans you can do so on the MoneyMe website. However, if you would like to apply for a credit card you can compare your options and do so on this page.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
