Frequently Asked Questions
What type of cards can US users link to their Chipper wallets?
Users can only link debit cards. Credit, prepaid, or gift cards are not allowed and cannot be linked successfully.
💡 Users should also ensure they input their card details correctly while linking the card, otherwise the card will fail to get linked.
How many cards can be linked to a wallet?
Users can only link one debit card to a wallet. If a user attempts to link a second debit card, a prompt will be displayed informing the user of the already linked card and an option will be available to remove the linked card before adding a new one.
Can I link another country’s card to my wallet?
No, you can only link your country’s currency card to your wallet. If a user attempts to link a card with a different currency than the primary currency of the Chipper account, they get a prompt informing them to link a card in their currency.
Can a debit card be linked to multiple wallets?
No, a debit card can only be linked to one Chipper account at a time. The system throws an error when a user tries to link a card that has already been linked to another Chipper wallet.
What are the card linking limits?
Users can only link and unlink the same or a different card for a maximum of 4 times within a 24-hour rolling period. The 5th attempt results in automatic flagging and blocking off of that account.
What happens to the $1 debited for verification?
Will the card be verified and charged $1 for every deposit?
No, the $1 charge is only required to verify the card before the first deposit.
