The Eversend virtual card provides a secure and convenient way to handle your online payments and subscriptions. However, it's essential to ensure that your virtual card has sufficient funds before initiating any transactions to the merchants. Please note the distinction between the USD wallet and the USD virtual card; it's important not to confuse the two. The funds must be added to the USD card in order for your card payments to be successful. Here's a concise guide on how to top up your Eversend USD virtual card:

Step 1: Funding Your Eversend Account

Open the Eversend app and navigate to the "Balances" section.

Choose the wallet you wish to fund and follow the prompts to complete the transaction.

Your funds will reflect in your Eversend account within a few minutes.

After funding your local Eversend wallet, you'll have two options for funding the virtual card: you can either transfer funds directly from your main Eversend wallet to the virtual card, or you can first exchange the funds from the local currency to USD.
