Loading a Prepaid Card Help

Yes, if you are a first time client you must register with a valid email address. There is no charge to open an account. Registration takes about one business day, and you may return to Topmeup after you receive the email confirmation of your verified profile. Following successful registration, returning users must use the same email address and card validation information to access TopMeUp.
We have a simple verification process for first time users that takes up to 1 business day. By registering, you agree that we may contact you by email or phone to complete the verification. You will receive an email notification when verification is complete.
Please call the cardholder support phone number on the back of your card and confirm that your personal information on file is correct before trying again.
There are 2 main reasons why you were not approved:
(1) we require additional information from you indicated in the unapproved email
(2) this decision is final and we cannot provide you with any details due to security reasons.

Typically the loading takes just a few minutes, but it can take up to one business day.
Upon successful registration, your limit will be assigned and communicated to you via email.
All sales are final, there will be no refunds, exchanges and cancellations.
If you receive notification from us that your e-Transfer is pending, our Service Representative will contact you to help resolve the issue. Please note e-Transfers may fail due to a variety of reasons; here are a few common ones:
  • The name on the bank account does not match the name you registered on TopMeUp
  • You re-used the security question and password on another order that contains a different amount or selection of vouchers from your previous order
  • The security questions and password does not match what is shown (case sensitive)
  • You’ve reached your bank e-Transfer limit
  • You’ve reached your TopMeUp transfer limit
There are a number of steps you can take to make sure your e-Transfer processes successfully:
  • Make sure the name on your bank account matches the name you registered on your TopMeUp account
  • Make sure the amount matches your order amount
  • Check with your bank to ensure that you have not exceeded your transfer limits.
  • Make sure you copy the security question/answer generated on the TopMeUp and paste to the e-transfer form in your on line banking. ** Important** You must update the security questions/answer for every e-Transfer you send.
  • If you are adding TopMeUp as a new recipient for e-Transfers, your financial institution may require you to validate that you are requesting this addition. Make sure you verify the request by checking your email or text messages from your bank.
Our Service Representative will reach out to you to resolve the issue. However, you may also choose to cancel the transfer through your bank and send another one. You will be responsible for any cancellation fees your bank may impose.
