Step 2. Determine who will use this Mastercard World gift card?


If you will use this card in person, please follow the instructions in steps 2~4 to activate the gift card. 


If you plan to gift this card to others, please forward the gift card email above to the lucky person you would like to give it to. The person will have to follow Steps 2~4 to activate the card themselves. 




Step 3. Card Activation


After the Mastercard World gift card purchase, the issuing bank will perform "know your customer" (KYC) upon the Mastercard World gift card activation. The KYC process will require a full name, email, and valid U.S. mailing address (Figure 2a). Once the required information is filled in, please click on the button "Activate"






Step 4. Review Process


The issuing bank reviews the provided KYC information via machine learning rules and manual processes, so a Mastercard World gift card activation will occur only during regular US East Coast business hours. If you purchase a Mastercard World gift card on a Friday afternoon, the activation might only occur on the next business day. While the review is ongoing, your gift card page will show "transaction in review", shown in Figure 2b. 


Piggy.Cards does NOT perform the KYC process, so Piggy.Cards does NOT store any of your KYC information. If there is any MasterCard-related or KYC issue, please call the issuing bank at 1-855-449-2273. 




Step 5. Card Activation


After your card is activated, the 16 digits card number, expiration date, and CVV (click on the card to reverse the card and obtain the CVV) will appear in Figure 2c. You are ready to use the card online, or store it in your digital wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, and use the card in physical stores.
