How Do You Activate a PayPower Card?

Customers can activate PayPower cards online or over the phone, according to the PayPower website. Customers can call the toll-free number 1-888-633-9432 24 hours a day or follow a series of online activation steps.

Online activation begins with entering the 16-digit card account number and the card expiration month and year, according to the PayPower website. Customers who need help with activation or other issues can use automated phone customer service 24 hours a day, speak with a live agent from 6 a.m. to midnight Central Standard Time every day of the week, send postal mail or email customer service using an online form. The form requires customers to enter their names, email addresses, phone numbers, the last four digits of their card numbers if applicable, the last four digits of their Social Security numbers and dates of birth.

Customers can buy the PayPower cards in stores or online, explains the PayPower website. If they buy in stores, they add money to their accounts at that time. If they enroll online, they can deposit money into their accounts when they activate their cards. Once a PayPower card is activated, the customer can use it to receive funds from IRS tax refunds and MoneyGram payments.
