How to use a WhiteBIT-card

The virtual WhiteBIT card is a product that you can use anywhere in the world. Detailed instructions on how to get it are available on this page. If you have already got a WhiteBIT card, this article will be useful for understanding all the aspects of using it.

 

You can manage your WhiteBIT card directly on the card page, where you can find basic information, including balance, available currencies, and tariff plan. On the same page, you can deposit or withdraw funds, change the plan, and block or unblock the card.

Balance 

The card balance on WhiteBIT is synchronized with PayUnicard. The total balance is displayed in the currency that is selected as the main currency for the card. If there is more than one currency on the balance, their total equivalent in the main currency will be displayed. When you add a second card, the total balance for both cards will be displayed in the same way.

Change the card name

There are no limits for changing the card name. To do this, click on the pencil icon next to the card, enter the new name in the new window, and confirm the change. 

Important: renaming the card on WhiteBIT does not affect the card name on PayUnicard.

After that, a sign will appear at the top of the page with a warning that it is impossible to make payments with the card.

If you have 2 cards added to your account, you can block either one or both of them. At the same time, if only one card is blocked, you can continue to use the second one.

Important: to withdraw WBT from the holding, both cards must be blocked. Also note that if there are funds remaining on the balance of the blocked card, they will not be available for use until the card is unblocked.

Please note that you must have 10 WBT in Holding to unblock the card. Click the “Unblock” button on the right side of the balance window, then “Confirm” in the new window. The lock icon will disappear, and the card will become active again.

After clicking “Upgrade to Premium”, you need to confirm your actions. Pay attention to the warning in the new window:
