If you are using a debit card, certain issuing banks sometimes use 16 digit card numbers which were previously associated with credit cards. As we have blocked credit cards on this website, if our system is identifying your payment method as a credit card, you will not be able to proceed.

There could be several reasons why this may have happened. Please check:
— That you know your balance, and it is more than or equal to the amount you're trying to spend.
— The Give as you Live Card hasn't expired (check the Valid Thru date on the front of the card).
— The retailer's card terminal is working correctly; they may have a fault causing your card to be declined.
Unfortunately it is not currently possible to top your card with additional funds, as the Give as you Live Card is a single-load card.
