Sterling Card is a pre-paid card. It gives you many of the benefits of a bank account with added security.

Sterling MasterCard® Card is a pre-paid card. This means that like a pay as you go phone, you need to put money on your account before you can use it. It is not a debit card that is linked to a bank account or credit card where you pay for your transactions at a later date.
Whether for everyday use, travel, sharing money abroad or even just for online spending, it is in no way linked to your money in a bank account and therefore limits your exposure to fraud.
Sterling pre-paid Cards make it easy to pay for whatever you want like groceries, petrol, booking holidays or shopping online, wherever the MasterCard® acceptance mark is displayed. Check out some more of our Sterling pre-paid Card Benefits now.
