No credit. No bank account. No problem.

Make every day simpler and more secure

Use the Mastercard Everyday Prepaid Card for all of the things you pay for with cash. Whether you want to shop, pay bills or manage your spending more effectively, prepaid cards will give you a simple, effective and easier way to use and manage your money.

Easy to get, easy to use

There's no credit check and no bank account required with a Mastercard Everyday Prepaid Card. Enjoy the convenience of leaving your cash at home. 

More convenient than cash

Your Mastercard prepaid card is accepted everywhere Mastercard is accepted, and you can even have your paycheque directly deposited to your registered card (where offered by issuer). 

Safer than cash*

When you register your Mastercard Everyday Prepaid Card, Zero Liability protects you from unauthorized purchases if your card is lost or stolen. You can't say that about cash.

Easy to manage your finances

No more waiting in line for money orders. Use your Mastercard prepaid card to pay bills and manage your expenses.
