Receiving Your GoBank Debit Card

When you open your account, you should receive a GoBank debit card in about seven business days. If you don't receive your card in over two weeks, you must contact the support team and ask for help.

Activating Your Card

Once you receive your personalized card in the mail, you can go on and open an account. Activate the card on the GoBank website. To activate it by the iPhone app, click 'ACCOUNT' and follow the steps. If you are using an Android device, click on the menu button at the top left of the screen. Click 'Account.'

When reporting a card that is lost, stolen, or not yet received, do it as soon as you can. You should report an unreceived card if it has been over two weeks since you asked for one.

Using the Temporary Card

Before you get your replacement card, you may use a temporary card. It is the card you use to pay for your purchases before getting your personalized card. Once GoBank verifies your identity, you can load money to your temporary card. However, you can't use it for ATM transactions or with other cash withdrawals.
