Get a confirmation of your Certegy card application immediately after you apply whether you do so online or with a physical affiliate. After you apply, you only need to wait a few minutes while Certegy assesses the information you provided to determine whether you qualify, according to Certegy.
Once your application is processed, and you have an Idea of how much you want to spend, you are given a pre-approval limit and a unique number that allows you to shop immediately. If you are not sure how much you want to spend, apply for the card as you shop, as the pre-approval amount cannot be increased once approved. For the company to finalize your application, you need to provide the unique number along with your ID. The ID has to be the same one you used to apply for the Certegy Card, explains Certegy.
It is recommended you use the pre-approval limit within 60 days because Certegy requires you to re-apply after 60 days. If, however, the retailer delays your purchases, Certegy extends your approval. You can also call its customer service number if you want to shop on a particular date or event that falls after the 60-day period, states Certegy.
