What is a Prepaid Debit Card?
Prepaid debit cards are payment cards that aren’t linked to a bank account. They are usually basic top up and go payment cards that can be loaded with money at a Post Office or PayPoint store.
Prepaid cards can be used to purchased goods and services online, on the high street and over the phone.
Often, some prepaid cards don't come with extra banking features such as direct debits, standing order or bank transfers. So you'll need to be sure to do your research first into which is the best prepaid card for you and your needs.
