What is a virtual card?

A virtual card works the same as a physical bank card, with one major difference: it exists digitally. Instead of being stored in a wallet or a purse, a virtual card is stored on your phone.

Each virtual card has a unique 16-digit card number, expiry date and 3-digit CVV number, and can be used online, in-store and at ATMs – as well as with Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Getsby virtual prepaid cards are digital Mastercard cards, which means you can use the card at any merchant that will accept Mastercard.

Is paying with a virtual card safe?

Yes, paying with a virtual card is 100% secure. Thanks to tokenization (Apple Pay and Google Pay), payments with our virtual cards are extra protected against payment fraud and data leaks on the internet. The card number is converted into a Token ID, and contains enough information to process a payment. Online purchases with tokens cannot be traced back to the original card details in the unlikely event that they fall into the wrong hands.

In addition, transactions with our cards are protected. Where in the past you had to verify a transaction with your PIN code, this is different with our digital cards. Payments are authorized via Mastercard 3D secure, biometric verification (Face-ID/Touch-ID) or the code of your mobile device or laptop.

Frequently asked questions

Which different types of virtual cards are there?

There are different types of virtual cards. We list the three variants for consumers for you:

  • Virtual credit card
  • Virtual debit card
  • Virtual prepaid debit card

In addition, there is also the virtual gift card. This is an anonymous gift card that you do not link to a bank account. Most providers for consumers have stopped doing this due to new regulations. The card is still readily available for business. The Corporate Virtual Gift Card has different conditions, allows worldwide users to register and a limit up to € 1000.

Virtual Credit Card

The Virtual Credit Card is a digital credit card that most closely resembles the regular credit card that you know. The card is linked to your income, and based on a credit check.

Virtual Debit Card

The Virtual Debit Card is linked to your bank account, so a credit check also applies. In some cases you can order one-time debit cards, which expire after one use.

Virtual Prepaid Debit Card

The Virtual Prepaid Debit Card is not linked to your bank account, so no credit check applies. In addition, it allows you to purchase securely and more anonymously.

Are virtual cards anonymous?

If you’re looking for virtual cards that do not require verification, we have to disappoint you, this is simply not allowed due to AML regulations.
