  • You can load cash onto your BudaPay card at any UK Post Office, therefore if you receive your salary in cash, you can safely deposit it on your card at your nearest Post Office –even without having a bank account!
  • You can also load cash onto your card at any Payzone point across the UK

  • You can withdraw cash at any ATM
  • Shop online and on the high-street
  • You can use it in restaurants and shops -at any place, where the Mastercard Acceptance Mark is displayed!

4. DOMESTIC USE AND FEES IN THE UK

  • If you choose GBP as the currency for your BudaPay card, your card will be domestic to Great Britain, and therefore you will be charged domestic fees when using your card in the UK – just as if you were using a UK bankcard!

5. SEND MONEY TO YOUR HOME COUNTRY AT EXTREMELY LOW COST

  • BudaPay cardholders can send and receive money instantly within their BudaPay Cards
  • Real Time transaction -No waiting time even on the weekends
  • The cost of the money transfer is 1.5% of the sent amount, but maximum 10.-GBP –so you can send money abroad at very low cost -to your family and friends -and they can access their funds right away!

8. YOU CAN CLOSE YOUR CARD AND CASH OUT AT LOW COST
