In what currency is Virtual Visa issued?
Virtual Visa can be issued in US Dollars (USD) and Canadian Dollars (CAD). Purchases are made in the local currency with Visa automatically handling the currency conversion.
For issuing prepaid cards in Euros (EUR) and British Pounds (GBP), we offer the Virtual Prepaid MasterCard. MasterCard prepaid cards are identical to Visa prepaid cards in all respects.
How does currency conversion work?
Visa automatically handles the currency conversion when purchases are made in a currency different from the currency in which the Visa was issued. For example, if a Visa issued in USD is sent to a recipient in Spain, that recipient can make purchases in Euros. The purchases are automatically converted to USD and charged to the Visa card.
A 2% transaction fee may be applied if the merchant settles the purchase transaction in a currency different from issuing currency. This fee is included in the final purchase charge applied to the Visa card.
Are there expiration dates?
Visa Promo Code will expire within 6 months from purchase.
Visa Prepaid Card will expire in 12 months from redemption of Promo Code.
Are there purchase restrictions?
Virtual Visa cannot be used for recurring fees (Example Subscription purchases).
Unless a merchant offers ‘split-tender’ the total order must be less than the card balance.
