Consumers are demanding more functionality from their prepaid card accounts, including total flexibility in how they load funds.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
Plastyc announced that effective immediately, via the Green Dot Network, cardholders can now cash checks and load funds to their UPside Prepaid Cards using the Rapid Reload Service available in more than 3,900 Walmart stores.
UPside customers can cash a pre-printed payroll, government or tax refund check and load all or part of the cash directly to the UPside card from the convenience of any register at a participating Walmart (not available in NJ, NY, RI, VT, WY). The cashier will cash the check (check cashing fees apply) and swipe the card to add all or part of the amount directly to the card. Cardmembers can load all or part of a check, up to $1,000, and the funds are available on the card within minutes. A Rapid Reload fee of $3.74 applies.
With this new method, UPside cardholders have three convenient ways to reload their cards via the Green Dot Network:
1. Rapid Reload with cash by taking the UPside card and cash to any Walmart register (not available in VT or WY). The cashier will swipe the card and the cash is added directly to the card. The funds are available on the card within minutes. A Rapid Reload fee of $3.74 applies.
2. Rapid Reload by cashing a check (not available in NJ, NY or RI; check cashing fees apply) and loading the funds at participating locations. A Rapid Reload fee of $3.74 applies.
3. Reload with a Green Dot MoneyPak® by purchasing a MoneyPak from a neighborhood retailer, in any one of more than 60,000 retailer locations nationwide, and logging into their UPside Card online account or through the UPside Mobile App, which is a unique feature for UPside cardholders. A service fee of up to $4.95 applies.
"Consumers are demanding more functionality from their prepaid card accounts, including total flexibility in how they load funds,” said Patrice Peyret, CEO of Plastyc. “As market leaders in providing full-featured prepaid accounts, Plastyc is excited to deliver these card loading enhancements to cardholders.”
After loading funds, UPside cardholders can immediately use the deposited cash to pay bills online, shop anywhere Visa is accepted, withdraw cash from an ATM or receive cash-back from the grocery store, top off prepaid cell phone minutes, even issue paper checks from their mobile or online account.
