- Visa recommends that Map card customers put a security PIN on their card so that money will be safe if the card is ever lost or stolen

Many Map cards do not have the customer’s actual name on them, instead coming with a message like “Happy Holidays” or “Happy Birthday.” Customers will not need to show identification when using these cards, so it’s recommended that the user set up a 4 digit PIN for security purposes (although the customer will still sign their name on the receipt).

Can customers spend more than the balance on a Map prepaid card?
Map prepaid cards can only be used for the amount that’s remaining on the card. The majority of retailers use a “pre-authorization” to ensure that funds are available for purchase. If a customer tries to make a purchase on a Map card that’s more than the available amount, the purchase will be declined.
