Get to know the new C.Pay Visa card:

C.Pay card is a prepaid card — top it up from any of your Cryptopay wallets (the funds will be converted to the card’s fiat currency automatically) and use it at millions of merchant locations worldwide, at ATMs, and over the internet.
At the moment, C.Pay card is available in GBP only, soon to be joined by EUR and USD.

How convenient is it?

Whether you prefer using the web version or mobile app, our team has made sure you’ve got everything you need within arm’s reach. Top up your card and unload funds back to your account; check the card details and revise transaction history in a few clicks or taps. And if your card gets lost or stolen, you can lock it in a matter of seconds.

Additionally, with our Support team there to assist you with anything you might need, we hope that your experience will be as intuitive and pleasant as it can be.

How safe are my funds?

We’re giving the highest priority to keeping your account safe, with device confirmation being only one of the procedures in place. For those who aim for an even higher level of safety of their account and funds, we recommend enabling two-factor authentication as an additional layer of security.
The C.Pay card is an electronic money product and is not linked to a bank account, making it both a safer way to shop online and an ideal option if you would like to keep some of your spending money separate from your current account and credit card.

As par for the course, it is chip and PIN protected, and 3D Secure. Much earlier than the mandatory PSD2 deadline, we have implemented the latest version of 3D verification, which, where merchants support it, allows for a more frictionless customer experience. You can also count on push notifications in the app to inform you of every load and unload you make with your card.

Finally, your funds on the card are kept in a segregated account, which ensures that they cannot be misappropriated.

What else can you offer?

  • Outstanding reliability — access your funds whenever you want, 24/7;
  • Transparent fees. Put together in one place for your convenience on our website;
  • One of the highest ATM and POS limits on the market;
  • Sleek black design.

In short, one of the best products available today.

The C.Pay Card is issued by Wirecard Card Solutions Ltd (“WDCS”) pursuant to licence from Visa. WDCS is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority to conduct electronic money service activities under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 (Ref: 900051).
