Depending on how you will use it, you have two options for the prepaid card (by Mastercard). With the virtual version, you can make online purchases only. With the physical version, you can make online and in-store purchases as well as cash withdrawals in euro and in other currency.
|Debit card||Credit card||Physical prepaid card||Virtual prepaid card|
|Cash withdrawal in euro|
|Cash withdrawal in other currency||*|
|Amount available defined in advance by you|
|Link with the Google Pay app to pay without card or cash|
With the physical version you can also make contactless payments: if your debit card bears the logo, just hold your card in front of the payment terminal with the same logo and it's done.
No need to enter a PIN code for purchases up to €25 (above that amount your PIN is required). Once all the payments add up to €50, you'll need your PIN code as well. For security reasons, you will be asked to insert your card in the terminal and to enter your PIN code. You can then continue without PIN code.
