One of the key features of your Viola Black current account is your prepaid card: a debit card that has a preloaded amount of money on it so you can only ever spend what is available.

Your physical card can be used for real-world purchases, your virtual card for ones online.

The way your Viola Black prepaid card works is simple. Using your Viola Black dashboard you can locate your account number and sort code, you can then bank transfer money from any other account into your Viola current account.

This also means you can receive payments from other people as a way of topping-up your current account’s funds. Depending on how much money is in your Viola Black current account, you can then top-up as much or as little onto your Viola Black card.

You are then free to spend until your card runs out of money or you decide to top-up again.
