What do I do if I don't recognize the merchant listed on my statement?

Some merchants may bill under a name other than their operating name or bill from a state different from where you made your purchase. If you still have questions about the transaction, please contact the merchant directly.

What is a Prepaid Card dispute?

If you believe that a prepaid card transaction has been posted to your account in error, you may submit a prepaid card dispute within 60 days of the date that appears on the transaction statement or receipt.

What happens after I submit my dispute?

After we confirm your dispute claim, we may need to contact the merchant and their bank regarding the disputed transaction. In some cases, we may contact you again via Mail if we need more information. We process disputes according to billing error procedures that are governed by federal law and outlined in your cardholder agreement.

What should I do before I submit a Prepaid Card dispute?

A quick call to the merchant can often answer your questions and easily resolve your prepaid card dispute. However, if this is not resolved, you may want to submit a dispute.

How do I submit a prepaid card dispute?

Please note the issuer of your prepaid card. You will find the card issuer displayed on the back side of the card near the bottom. Download the corresponding issuer dispute form and fill it out according to the instructions indicated on the form:

All Trans Financial Services Visa Prepaid Card

Bancorp Visa Prepaid Card

Choice Bank Mastercard Prepaid Card

MetaBank Visa/Mastercard Prepaid Card

Transact Payments Limited Prepaid Mastercard

Valitor hf. Visa Prepaid Card

Disputes are subject to time limits which vary between 30 and 120 days after the date they appear in your transaction history.

Most transactions must be disputed within 60 days of the date when they appear on your transaction history.

How long will it take to be reimbursed for unauthorized charges?

Approximately 45 – 60 days.

What should I know about using my prepaid card at gas stations, hotels and other merchants?

When you swipe or insert your prepaid card at a gas station pump, the gas station will place a pre-authorized hold of up to $125.00 USD or more on your card prior to you filling up.

The actual amount purchased will be processed on the card at a later time, but the initial hold may last for 8 days before being released, minus the amount of gas that was purchased.

During the time that the hold is in effect, the funds being held will be unavailable for you to use.

When the transaction settles, you will only be charged for the amount of gas purchased.

To avoid pre-authorized holds, we recommend pre-paying inside the gas station so you can specify the exact amount of gas you wish to purchase.

Some other merchants may have similar practices and even longer maximum pre-authorization timeframes:

  • Hotels and cruise lines (up to 30 days)
  • Vehicle rental agencies (up to 60 days)
  • Financial institutions (up to 10 days)

In some cases, the merchant may be able to make an exception and release the pre-authorized hold earlier than the maximum allowed hold time.

Why is a transaction still outstanding?

If you notice a transaction under the status “outstanding purchase”, the merchant has not yet cleared the transaction. Transactions are usually cleared by the merchant shortly after the purchase was made.

However, some merchants such as gas stations, hotels, or cruise lines for example may pre-authorize a larger amount than the initial purchase and keep a hold on the funds for a longer time. These transactions will remain “outstanding purchases” until the merchant releases the funds and clears the transactions.

Can I dispute an outstanding purchase?

Please note that you will not be able to dispute a transaction if the status is still “outstanding purchase”. However, the merchant should be able to release the funds early. In order to have the funds released, please refer to section below.

How to release Pre-Authorized transaction?

If you would like to have the funds released earlier than the usual time frame, please follow the instructions below:
The merchant will need to fax a pre-authorization release letter to Hyperwallet Systems Inc. at +1 604 424-9926.
The letter will need to be sent directly from the merchant and will also need to be on company letterhead. The following information must be included for the authorization to be released:

  • Customer’s Name
  • Customer’s card # (first 6 and last four digits only)
  • Date of authorization
  • Authorization Amount in original currency
  • Authorization Code
  • Merchant ID

If the pending authorization is from a car rental, the merchant will also need to supply a copy of the closed contract (showing that the car has been returned).
If the pending authorization is from a hotel, the merchant will also need to supply a copy of the closed folio (showing check in/check out).

What is mobile wallet tokenization?

Mobile wallet apps allow you to securely store payment information like credit, debit, and prepaid card numbers on your mobile device.

Tokenization is a data security feature that replaces your real card number with an anonymous account “token” at the point of sale. When you make a purchase, the merchant uses this token – not your card number – to verify and process your payment.

Together, a mobile wallet with tokenization technology gives you a fast, safe, and convenient alternative to using your physical card when shopping in-store or online.

Are mobile wallets safe to use?

Yes. In fact, mobile wallets are more secure than physical cards. Using a mobile wallet reduces the risk of fraud by allowing you to take advantage of your device’s password and biometric authentication features like fingerprint and iris scanners. Tokenization provides the additional benefit of masking your card number so that even the merchant you’re paying is not able to see it.

Which cards are eligible?

USD prepaid cards issued by MetaBank or The Bancorp Bank.

How do I keep my device and card details secure?

  • Use your device’s additional security options. Create a lock-screen PIN and setup fingerprint or iris recognition if available.
  • If your device supports fingerprint recognition, only register your own fingerprint and do not allow anyone else to add theirs.
  • Never leave your device unattended in public.
  • Be wary of unsolicited messages asking you to reveal personal or financial information, and those that request permission to access or install software on your device.
  • If your device is lost, stolen, or compromised, contact customer support immediately so we can assist with suspending or disabling and replacing the card registered on your mobile wallet.
  • If available, sign up for your device’s “Find My” service. This will allow you to locate, lock, and remotely wipe sensitive data from your device if it is lost or stolen.

What’s the difference between Samsung Pay & Google Pay?

Google Pay uses Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to make contactless payments using your mobile device. This “tap to pay” service is limited to merchants with NFC-enabled payment terminals. In order to accept Google Pay for in-store purchases, merchants may be required to upgrade their payment terminals to accept devices with NFC capabilities.

Samsung Pay takes advantage of both NFC and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology. MST allows you to use the mobile wallet’s “tap to pay” functionality at almost any payment terminal in the world that accepts debit or credit cards.

How will mobile wallet transactions appear on my card statement?

All purchases processed on a mobile wallet will appear on your Pay Portal transaction history just like any other point-of-sale transaction.

How do I return an item purchased using a mobile wallet?

You'll need your store receipt, just like you would for any other purchase. If the merchant asks you to swipe or provide the original payment method so they can process a refund, simply hold the back of your phone up against the contactless payment terminal.

Can I use my mobile wallet to pay in-store internationally?

Yes. You can use your mobile wallet internationally almost anywhere contactless payments are accepted. Foreign exchange or other fees may apply. Please see your Cardholder Agreement for details.

I was sent a One-Time Passcode (OTP) when registering my card on a mobile wallet. What is this and why is it required?

To verify your identity and keep your card details secure, a one-time passcode is sent to you by text message when registering a payment method on your device. You will be prompted to enter this code during the registration process.
