How do I activate my card?

You may also go to https://payaccount.io/register to register your card and create your account (this is largely optional but is absolutely necessary should you require the ability to monitor your balance). When registering, please hover over the bubbles in the empty fields to make sure that your password and username match the requirements. If you have multiple cards that needs to be registered via this portal, make sure that you use different iterations of your username/password.
