Add money to someone else’s card

You don’t have to worry about this, because it is quite easy to remit your money to someone else’s Netspend Card account. Actually receiving money from someone else is also super easy. It will also be possible if the someone has an ACE Elite or a Purpose card.

You just simply need to know the person’s name and his or her FlashPay ID and write it down somewhere. After that, you have two choices: using the Netspend website or visiting the closest Netspend location. If you want to do it online, you just need to log into your account on the Netspend website. And then, go to Online Account Center, enter the person’s name, FlashPay ID, and, of course, the amount you would like to send. All done!

If you can’t access to or don’t want to access to your account online, visit a near location. I’ve put the link at the very bottom of this page.

For those wanting to transfer using the website, you may be now wondering, “What is FlashPay?” or “Can I trust it?”.


Yes, you can trust FlashPay. You can securely transfer money using FlashPay. According to the Netspend website, it is “the easiest way to send money and from your prepaid debit card account.” It does not matter if you want to send money to your friends, family members, or just between your own accounts.

It does not have a minimum amount. You can send a small amount like a few dollars to anyone. It will be a great way to send movie money to your friends, or send a split amount for your dinner with your friends. For whatever, to whomever, transferring funds is super easy.

How about adding to your own Netspend account? That’s is also easy peasy. Please read through the following section.
