When you apply in branch the maximum you can load on your card is £750. Depending on the branch and currency you buy, you may be given the card at the time of purchase or it will be sent to your home address.
If you’re applying online you can load as little as £50 and as much as £5,000 on your card. Once you’ve submitted your application, your card will arrive within six to eight working days and you’ll be able to start using it right away. After that simply sign into your online account to manage your money whenever you want.
