How to Fund Your GraphCard Account with VTN
Graphcard is simply an online payment system that enables anyone anywhere in the world to pay online without having a credit card. This means you can get to purchase things online where there is a need for you to use a credit card which you probably don’t have. To use this, you will need to create a graphcard account.
To get started, each player has to open a Graphcard account. For customers opening a personal account and distributors opening a reseller account, registration is completely free. There is a one time activation fee of $45 for merchant accounts. This fee is due when the merchant starts accepting payments online through Graphcard.
For personal account holders and resellers, the next step after opening an account is to add funds to it. While resellers have a special arrangement with Graphcard that enables them load their accounts by wire transfer from their banks, personal account holders have various options. Some of these options is to either purchase a virtual prepaid card from a reseller or use virtual terminal network (VTN). Alternatively, you can load using personal checks, electronic transfers from checking accounts, Western Union money transfers and money orders.
Once your account is active and funded, you can start using it to shop online by easily going to where you want to purchase an item, and log on to your Graphcard account to send money via email to the merchant. If the seller is registered with Graphcard, the funds are deposited into their account immediately. You would not be charged any fees for sending money this way. If the seller/merchant is not registered but accepts checks or money orders, Graphcard makes payment using either option. When payment is effected, Graphcard notifies both the merchant and the customer of the payment via email. An online reporting tool also enables both parties to check the status of their transactions.
Another way is that Graphcard has a feature that allows members to convert their Graphcard funds into an online debit card. This is accomplished by simply purchasing a virtual card using the funds from your Graphcard account. Graphcard then allows you the account holder to view card details such as the card number, expiry date and CVV2 code via their secure 128 bit SSL encrypted website. The virtual card does not have personal information such as names. The virtual card enables Graphcard account holders to shop online as they would with a traditional credit card but with the added benefit of anonymity.
