You must activate your Fancard before it can be used for purchases or at ATMs.
However, you can load your Fancard with a bank transfer or direct deposit and send and receive money with other Fancards before receiving or activating your Fancard.
You are able to activate your card by calling 1-855-925-4626, and using the automated system or speaking to a representative. You can also activate your card by simply logging into your dashboard and clicking the "Activate Card" button. You will need to provide the full card number, as well as some verification during the activation process.
Keep in mind that you must also activate all sub-account Fancards before they can be used for purchases. You can activate these by logging into your primary account and clicking the "Sub-Card" tab on the dashboard menu bar. You are then able to select a particular sub-card and activate the card by clicking the "Activate" button.
