Frequently asked questions

What is the Only1 card?

The Only1® Visa® Prepaid Card gives you the power to make purchases wherever Visa debit cards are accepted worldwide. You can use this card for all your everyday expenditures whether you are at home, out and about or abroad! The Only1 Visa Prepaid Card can be used to make online, phone or mail order purchases. It can also be used at millions of ATMs worldwide. The temporary card cannot be used at any merchant requiring a manual imprint. Neither the personalized nor temporary card can be used for gambling. The amount of every purchase or ATM withdrawal you make will automatically be deducted from the value on the card. When completing a transaction, select "Credit" if you would like to sign for your transaction and "Debit" if you would like to use your PIN number.

What is authorization?

When you present your Only1 card to a merchant for a purchase, they run an authorization to ensure that the card is valid and to reserve sufficient funds for the purchase. When making purchases with certain types of merchants (for example, restaurants, pay-at-the-pump gas stations, hotels and car rental companies), your Only1 card may be authorized for a different amount than the actual purchase price. Usually this is done to ensure that the card contains sufficient funds until the purchase is settled.

How many additional Only1 Visa Prepaid Cards can I get?

Can I use my Only1 Visa Prepaid Card at car rentals, hotels, gas stations and restaurants?

It depends on the merchant. When you use your card at any of the above locations or at any other service oriented merchant, it's called an "open-ended" transaction. That means the total amount due is unknown. The merchant has the right to authorize more than the transaction amount (i.e., an additional 20% at restaurants for a tip). The merchant also has the right to hold funds on your card. In order to avoid these types of holds, we recommend that you prepay for your gas and that you call hotels and rental car companies first to inquire about their prepaid card policy.

Can the Only1 Visa Prepaid Card be replaced if lost or stolen?

If your card is lost or stolen, call Customer Service toll-free at 866-630-2504 to cancel your card as soon as you can. After you cancel your Only1 Visa Prepaid Card, a replacement card with the remaining balance minus a $5.95 replacement fee will be mailed to you.

What if I return something I purchased?

When you return something purchased, the merchant will credit the amount of the return to your card. Because returns are handled through the merchant's bank, credits may take 2-3 business days to appear in your Only1 card.
