The alternative to banking

Activation

The process of enabling a prepaid card for use. Prepaid cards cannot be used until they are activated. This is usually done at the “POS” when the card is first purchased or loaded with funds. For some “Network Branded” cards, activation needs to be carried out on-line or with the assistance of a Value-Added Retailer (VAR) or via a mobile text message (SMS).
