There are two main ways of funding your account with physical cash. The first is to go to one of the partner stores. Once there, follow the steps below.

  • Ask the cashier to load your card, and tell them how much you'd like to add.
  • Give the cashier your account details and the physical money you're adding to the account.
  • The cashier will then process the transaction, and the money will appear in your account.

After you've completed this, you can spend the money on your card. The stores you can do this at are as follows.

  • CVS
  • Walmart
  • Rite Aid
  • 7-Eleven
  • Dollar General

Alternatively, you can ask a friend who also has the application to transfer some funds to you in exchange for physical money. This could also be done with any other user. Since there are no fees for transferring between accounts, you can give anyone your physical funds and have them send you a transfer for the same amount. Of course, this is a risky transaction if it's not with someone you know.
