Freezing your card

Freezing your card prevents any further transactions from being made on it virtually, physically or on any of your devices (Google / Apple Pay). It is reversible, and you can unfreeze your card easily in your account.

To freeze your card, please follow these steps:

For Cardholders

Step 1. Login to your account

Step 2. Click the button with three dots


Step 3. Click 'Freeze card' to temporarily suspend any use of your card, or 'Cancel card' to permanently block your card.



If you freeze your card, you can unfreeze it at a later time in the same place on your account.

If you cancel your card, is this a permanent action and you won't be able to use this card any further.

For Admins

Please follow these steps:

Step 1. Click "Cards"


Step 2. Find the card you want to freeze, click the menu on that card, then select "Freeze card"


Your card is now temporarily disabled and cannot be used. You can unfreeze your card at any time in your account.
