Can I use a prepaid card or a paycard?


No, we are unable to support prepaid accounts because we cannot guarantee a successful transfer. We are also unable to support paycards from employers (like Walmart Money Card) because they work similarly to prepaid accounts.

Here’s a list of all the prepaid accounts we don’t support:

  • AccountNow Prepaid Mastercard
  • Achieve Card Prepaid
  • ADP Aline
  • ADP Checking
  • American Express Serve
  • Bank of America Money Network
  • BB&T Money Account
  • BBVA Compass Clearspend
  • Bluebird by American Express
  • Brink
  • CashPoints Global
  • Chime
  • Comdata
  • Comerica (Way2Go Card) - Personal
  • Fifth Third Access 360
  • Green bank
  • Greendot
  • H&R Block Emerald Prepaid Cards
  • Kaiku Visa
  • Mango Visa
  • Metabank
  • Netspend
  • Paypal Prepaid Mastercard
  • PNC Smart Access Card
  • Rapid PayCard - Client Login
  • Rushcard
  • Skylight All-Access
  • US Bank Focus
  • Virtual - Reserve (PNC Virtual Wallet)
  • Walmart Money Card
  • Wells Fargo EasyPay

Additional Notes

Bancorp Bank (Chime’s parent company) is not able to work with us in a way that allows us to transfer money to and from your account successfully.

If you’re considering opening a new checking account to use with the Earnin app, we recommend BBVA bank. BBVA sends us transaction updates faster, and they offer Lightning Speed.
