Pixpay card and Crystal cash card

Crystal prepaid credit card is a prepayment card which you can load with money – by easy automatic top up from a bank account, wage transfers, with cash or a credit card or debit card. Your Crystal MasterCard looks just like a credit or debit card, with a card number, chip and signature strip and can be used wherever MasterCard® cards are accepted worldwide.

A Crystal prepaid card is not a credit card, which provides you with a line of credit, nor is it a debit card which is linked to a bank account. This means that with Crystal you can't go overdrawn or borrow money – you can only spend the money you have loaded onto it, so you stay in complete control of your money.

A Crystal allows you to transfer money - This way, you can securely enjoy your money in shops, on-line and across the world when you are on holiday or travel aboard. You can even get an extra card for family and friends, so you can quickly and safely share your money.
