A Green Dot Debit card is a Visa or MasterCard that can be used anywhere that accepts Visa or MasterCard debit cards. There is no line of credit, which means it is not a credit card. It is a prepaid debit card that can be reloaded with more money.
A Green Dot prepaid card is personalized with the customer's name and is verified by the cashier, unlike a gift card, which doesn't have a name and can be used by anyone. A Green Dot card can also be used at an ATM to withdraw cash. A customer must be at least 18 years old to be a primary cardholder.
