We will ask you to register with your Name, Address, Date of Birth, and the last 4 of your Social Security Number. This information is only used to prove your identity to our bank. This is a one-time registration, and only takes an additional minute or two to complete).
2. Purchase a # Load Pack . (# accepts VISA, Mastercard, and Discover)
3. Activate Your # Load Pack
4. Complete your purchase. You’re not finished until you complete your purchase and return to the shopping cart with confirmation.

# is similar, in some ways, to a reloadable prepaid debit card. Before making a purchase, a customer must first create and fund their # account, that is held at an FDIC insured U.S. bank. This is why, on the first transaction, we have to collect a little more information on our customers than some other payment methods. It’s also why your information is much more secure than other payment methods.
# IS SECURE. # never shares your personal information with any 3rd party other than the bank where your # checking account resides. Opening a # account has no impact on credit scores, nor is the information shared with any credit reporting agency. Also, # confirms each purchase with 2 factor authentication to your mobile phone, so your funds are safe from unauthorized use.
