How Do I Activate My Green Dot Visa Card?

Register your Green Dot Visa by going to the Green Dot website and entering your card information. Choose a personal identification number, and submit the information.

  1. Go to the Green Dot website

    Once on the Green Dot website, hover over Register/Activate a Card and click Bought in a Store or Received in the Mail.

  2. Enter your card information

    Enter the 16-digit card number on the front of the card and the three-digit security code on the back of the card into the two gray squares that look like debit cards. The square on the left is for the card number, and the square on the right is for your security code.

  3. Choose a PIN

    For a card received in the mail, enter the expiration date, choose a four-digit personal identification number, or PIN, and enter the last four digits of your Social Security number. If you need help choosing a PIN, click the Choose PIN for Me link to the right of the PIN box, and a four-digit PIN is randomly generated for you.

  4. Submit and confirm your information

    Enter the code in the outlined green box. Click the blue Submit button. On the next page, confirm your information before your card is fully registered.
