3. Loading the card

3.1 The Summary Box in section 19 sets out the methods by which you can pay for and load up your card when you first get it and how you can load it up subsequently. Please note, loads are directly applied to the Parent card in all cases; loading of Teen cards comes as a transfer from the associated Parent card.
3.2 To load the Parent card by debit card, you must use a debit card that has been issued by a regulated financial institution in the UK or EEA and is registered at the same address as this card.
3.3 The time that it takes for your card balance to be updated when you load your card depends on the method that you use and the time that it takes for the funds to be sent to the Issuer. If the Issuer receives the funds on a business day, your card will be updated with the amount on the same business day. If the Issuer receives the funds on a day that is not a business day, the Issuer will update your balance on the next business day. You can check the transfer time, for example, with your bank or debit card provider if paying from a bank account or debit card.
3.4 When funds are loaded onto your card, the payment is made in the same currency as that of your card. The currency you have used to load your card may be different to that of the card. Your statement will show the exchange rate used which applied on the date that the card was loaded. Exchange rates may change and the exchange rate which applies when you check may not be the exchange rate that was used to convert your funds to load your card.


4. Use of the card

4.1 The card is a prepaid product which can be used to pay for goods and services at retailers that display the MasterCard Acceptance Mark. To use the card, present it at the time of payment. Use it in full or part payment of your purchase.
4.2 When you receive your card, you must go online to www.mecard.co.uk and follow the activation instructions on screen. Once you have activated each card online, you need to call 01 244 770 510 to retrieve your PIN. (This is an automated line open 24/7. Calls cost 10p per minute from a landline. Calls from mobiles may be higher)
4.3 You must not make purchases that exceed the balance of funds available on the card. Your balance will be reduced by the amount of each purchase you make. If any purchase takes you over your available funds or the card limits in force from time to time and set out in condition 3 (e.g. ATM withdrawal limit) the transaction will be declined.
4.4 You can use the card to make purchases in-store, via the internet or over the phone. The card can be used to obtain cash through ATMs. There is no cash back facility. This is not a debit card supported by a bank account, and is not in any way connected to a bank account. It is also not a guarantee card, charge card or credit card. You will not earn any interest on any funds loaded on to the card.
You must not use the card for:
4.4.1 pre-authorised regular payments;
4.4.2 transactions at self-service petrol pumps;
4.4.3 transactions for cash (other than ATM withdrawal) including for example cash back, cash from a bank, money orders, traveller’s cheques, foreign exchange, or bureau de change, or
4.4.4 any illegal purposes.
4.5 Your card cannot be used in situations where it is not possible for the supplier to obtain online authorisation that you have sufficient balance for the transaction. For example: transactions on trains, ships, and some in-flight purchases.
4.6 We may stop, suspend or restrict your card or PIN on reasonable grounds relating to:
4.6.1 the security of your card, card number or PIN, and
4.6.2 the suspected unauthorised or fraudulent use of your card or PIN. We will, if possible, inform you before stopping, suspending or restricting your card or PIN that we intend to do so and the reasons for doing this. If we are unable to do so then we will inform you immediately afterwards. The requirement to inform you does not apply where it would compromise reasonable security measures or it would be unlawful to do so.
4.7 We are not responsible for the quality, safety, legality, or any other aspect of any goods or services purchased with the card. We are not liable for the failure of any merchant to honour the card.
4.8 We will not issue the Parent card under these terms and conditions to anyone under the age of 18 years old. We may allow you to have additional Teen cardholders sharing your balance who are at least 13 years old.


5. Transactions

5.1 You agree that any use of your card, card number or PIN constitutes your authorisation and consent to a transaction.
5.2 The time of receipt of a transaction order is when it is received by us. If a transaction order is received after 15:00 on a business day then it will be deemed to have been received on the next business day. If receipt does not fall on a business day then it will be deemed to have been received on the next business day.
5.3 You cannot stop a transaction after it has been transmitted to us by giving your consent to the transaction, or once you have given your consent to the supplier for a pre-authorised payment.
5.4 We may refuse a transaction or suspend or terminate the right to top up your card. We may do this if the relevant phone or computer link is busy. We may also do this if:
5.4.1 a transaction might take you over your available funds on the card; or
5.4.2 a transaction might take you over any of your card limits; or
5.4.3 We reasonably believe that we need to do so to keep to the rules of the payment system under which your card is issued, or
5.4.4 We reasonably believe that there are needs to do so to comply with any law or as a matter of good practice.

6.1 The card can be used for transactions which are not in the currency of the card although a fee will be applied for doing so.
6.2 If you make a transaction in a currency other than the currency of the card we will change the amount into the currency of the card at the wholesale market rate or any rate that a government may set. We will charge a service charge (commission), see Summary Box.
6.3 Exchange rates may change, and the exchange rate which applies on the date that you make your transaction may not be the same as the exchange rate we use on the date that we convert the transaction charge and deduct the service charge from your balance. The exchange rate applied will include this service charge. You can check the exchange rate used as described in condition 7. Your online statement will show the transaction inclusive of the service charge.
