Link a bank account
Load money to your Akimbo Prepaid MasterCard® from your bank account. You can set up one-time or automatic transfers from your bank to your primary card, your sub-card(s), or any other Akimbo Card member using our dashboard or mobile app.
Direct deposit is the easiest way to load money onto your Akimbo Card. All you have to do is fill out a form and hand it to your employer or source provider. You can even deposit a specific amount onto your Akimbo Card, and the remaining can be deposited into your bank account.
You can load cash to your Akimbo Card using MasterCard rePower and Green Dot Reload @ the Register™. Cash loads usually show up on your Akimbo Card account within minutes. Keep in mind that while Akimbo does not charge a fee for this service, the retail location may charge between $4 and $5 per cash load.
Mobile check deposit
You can load pre-printed and approved personal or payroll checks made out to you using your smartphone! We've partnered with a company called Ingo Money†, a trusted platform that lets you load approved checks by snapping a picture with a smartphone. Funds can be loaded onto your Akimbo Card within minutes for a fee or in 7 days with no fee, so long as it isn't returned.
The fastest way to load money onto your card is by having another Akimbo Card member transfer money to your Akimbo Card! You can use the "request" feature on the Akimbo dashboard or Akimbo Card mobile app to give them a nudge. The best part--transfers between Akimbo Card members are free and typically post within a few minutes.
