What is a Pockit MasterCard ?
A Pockit MasterCard card looks like a credit or debit card, with a card number, chip & pin and signature strip. However, it does not provide a source of credit.
So, it helps you to spend only the amount you have chosen to pay in while offering some of the same great facilities as bankcards, such as an account number and sort code, helping you to stay in complete control.
You can use the Pockit MasterCard at over 35 million locations and withdraw cash from over 1.9 million cash machines worldwide – wherever you see the MasterCard Acceptance mark.
Is there a minimum age to become a Pockit account holder ?
Yes, all primary accountholders must be at least 18 years old. However, you can add additional cardholders, also known as secondary cardholders (minimum age 13).
Who provides the Pockit account and MasterCard ?
The Pockit account and MasterCard card are provided by Pockit Limited.
The card is issued by Wirecard Card Solutions Limited pursuant to license from MasterCard International Incorporated.
When will I receive my Pockit MasterCard ?
