When does my Virtual Cards began to expire?

When does my Virtual Cards began to expire? From receival or activation?

Your card will begin it's "shelf life" from the day the activation link was sent to you. Hence, it is possible for the cards to become expired before they are activated. Sadly when this happens, you will need to reach out to the organization that originally provided you the card in order for them to reissue it to you. 

Hence, we highly recommend that you activate your virtual card the day you received them in your email.
