Greenlight is a debit card for kids, not a credit card. Parents load money onto the card from their own funding source connected through their Greenlight app. And because it’s a debit card, kids can’t spend what isn’t there. That’s a pretty valuable life lesson.

Kids and parents will both use the same Greenlight app you see in the app store, but have two different experiences and individual login credentials. Parents can set up their child’s login under the child’s profile settings.

Greenlight debit cards are FDIC-insured up to $250,000 and come with Mastercard’s Zero Liability Protection. Greenlight blocks ‘unsafe’ spending categories, sends real-time transaction notifications, lets parents turn cards off at any time, and gives parents flexible ATM and spending

After completing registration or requesting a replacement card, your debit card will arrive within 7-10 business days. If you would like to expedite your shipping for your card to arrive within 2-3 business days, you can call our customer service team at 888-483-2645 within 12 hours of signing up. You can request to have your shipping expedited for a one-time fee of $24.99.

Bank Account
If you are prompted to verify your Bank Account when manually adding your funding source, you will receive 2 small deposits of $1.00 or less in your bank account within 1-2 business days. To verify your bank account as a funding source, you will need to input the 2 micro deposit amounts into your Greenlight app when prompted to verify.
If you do not see these deposits within 3 business days, please contact your banking service provider directly and have them take a look at the status of your bank account. Once you complete verification, the 2 micro deposits will be removed from your bank account to offset the deposit amounts.
Debit Card
Once you add your debit card as a funding source and make your initial funding load, you should see 2 transactions on your debit card that add up to the initial load amount. You will need to confirm these transactions within 3 business days in the Greenlight app to verify your debit card.
If you do not see these transactions within 4 business days, please contact your banking service provider directly and have them take a look at the status of your bank account.

When your child’s card arrives, follow these simple steps to activate it right away:

  1. Open your Greenlight app. From your Parent Dashboard, you should see a notification prompting you to activate your child’s card.
  2. Tap on the notification and input the card’s expiration date in the app to activate it.
  3. Next, visit your child’s dashboard by clicking their square at the top of your Parent Dashboard.
  4. Select “Manage Card” then “Set debit card PIN.” After the PIN is set, your physical card is activated and ready to use!

We have made it super easy to check your child’s spending history.

  1. Navigate to your child’s dashboard.
