MasterCard prepaid gift cards can be managed online through the online portal of the specific gift card issued, such as Vanilla MasterCard. The cards can also be managed through online gift card managers such as GoWallet.
MasterCard prepaid gift cards are single-use or reloadable gift cards that are backed by the MasterCard corporation, allowing them to be used at a wide range of online and physical retailers. When a card is purchased, a specific dollar amount is loaded onto the card. After the card is delivered to the intended recipient, it must be activated in order to access the funds. The balance of the card, along with recent transactions, can be viewed online or reviewed over the phone.
GoWallet is a free online company that allows user to manage multiple gift cards through a single access point. In addition to retailer-specific gift cards, it allows users to manage MasterCard prepaid gift cards as well. After a user account is created, the GoWallet service lets users enter the MasterCard gift card information into the account so that it can be retrieved and viewed on demand. GoWallet also offers a smartphone app that brings up the card information and lets users pay with the phone at various retailers.
