What is a virtual prepaid card?
A virtual card works just like a physical card would, with the caveat that it can only be used for online purchases, not at brick-and-mortar merchants. As long as the merchant accepts the use of an electronic payment, you should be good to go.
Certain internet merchants will also decline the use of a virtual card (this article expands further on this). However, this may vary according to the fraud protection software that the merchant employs.
If you require any clarification or assistance, please contact the number on the back of the card (for physical cardholders) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
