The card allows you to create [digital] cards that are tied to your main account and can be used wherever Visa is accepted. You can also add your card information to Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay. And you’ll get a physical card in the mail to use for in-store shopping.
The MOVO® Digital Prepaid Visa® Card doesn’t have a monthly fee, although you will be charged $4.95 per month if your account stays inactive for 90 days.
