How to Add Funds to Green Dot Using Visa

by Duncan Jenkins ; Updated September 11, 2015
You can reload a Green Dot card with another debit or credit card.

Green Dot Prepaid Visa cards are quite similar to debit cards. Customers without bank accounts can access cash from ATMs, use the cards as a credit/debit card at retailers and reload the account. The accounts have no minimum balance requirements and no overdraft fees. The most common reloading method is through direct deposit, but it is possible to reload a Green Dot card with another Visa card.

Verify the balance on the Green Dot account. Some cards come with balance restrictions, and you do not want to exceed a maximum balance. Review the initial agreement you signed when you accepted the Green Dot card.

Find a retailer who sells MoneyPak cards. Supermarkets and drug stores are among the types of retailers who sell MoneyPak cards. MoneyPak cards are used for reloading prepaid debit cards. They do not strictly service Green Dot; they work for a variety of different prepaid accounts. This is the only service you can use to purchase more funds on a Green Dot Card with a different Visa account.

Purchase a MoneyPak denomination. These come in amounts from $20 to $500. Choose the amount you wish to purchase and take the money it to the cashier. The cashier must activate the account when you pay with another Visa card. You will also need to pay a service fee to MoneyPak.

Scratch off the foil to reveal the PIN on the MoneyPak card. Call the toll-free number listed on the back of your Green Dot card. Go through the automated system and choose the "reload with MoneyPak" option. Punch in the PIN listed on the MoneyPak card.

Hang up and call again to verify the new balance on the Green Dot card.
