In what currency is Visa® Prepaid Card issued?

We offer the Visa​®​ Prepaid Card in US Dollars (USD) and Canadian Dollars (CAD). We also offer Mastercard​​​ Prepaid Card in Euros (EUR) and British Pounds (GBP). All Visa​®​ and Mastercard​​ Prepaid Cards work in an identical fashion. Purchases are made in the local currency and automatically converted to the currency of issue.

How does currency conversion work?

Visa​®​​ and Mastercard​​ Prepaid Cards​ automatically handle the currency conversion when purchases are made in a currency different from the currency in which the prepaid card 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 prepaid 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​®​​ or Mastercard​​​ prepaid card.

Are there expiration dates?

Yes. Recipients have to sign up for a digital wallet and access their Prepaid Card. After that, recipients have several months to spend the balance on the prepaid card. ​Log into your Rybbon account​ to see expiration dates for each type of prepaid card.
