Visa cards - Why did the option disappear?


#1

Hey,

I understand that the ability to get a Visa card is limited to some countries right now but, I meet those requirements and I previously had the option to order Visa cards but now it’s unavailable.

Is there any reason for this change? When will they be back?

Hey @clickyclick,

I ordered a card less than 30 days ago and it was a Visa Prepaid. I’m based in Portugal. Where are you trying to order the card from?

Either Visa or MasterCard are accepted pretty much everywhere, but I know Visa is a lot better for some people (like myself).

Have you tried contacting :r: on Twitter or through the app?

Cheers!

I’m ordering it from the UK; I don’t have the option to choose Visa any more and I really need it for travelling Asia where it’s much more commonly accepted.


#4

That’s strange, I can get Visa in Portugal. Try contacting :r: on Twitter they usually reply promptly.


#5

I contacted support, they had no answer.


#6

I still have Visa as an option.


#7

Well @clickyclick, this is strange. I have the option to get a Visa :r: standard card. However, if I go for a Premium one it only gives me MasterCard.

Try sending a message to @AndreasK!

Support said:

The lack of VISA is affecting GB user for now. We are still working on that feature…


#9

out of curiosity, what’s your reason to prefer Visa over MasterCard?

Visa is much more widely accepted in Asian countries. It’s almost 75% Visa in the areas I commonly visit.

While ATMs mostly accept both Visa and MasterCard, POS don’t.
