How do I spend my card in a store?


To use the card instore in any country, simply swipe along the reader and sign for your goods. You can use your Allgo Mastercard Gift Card as many times as you like until the expiry date printed on the front of the card or up to the amount available on the card. As the card is used, the amount of each purchase is automatically deducted from the card’s available balance.




What if my instore purchase is greater than the balance on my card?


In this case, you should ask the checkout assistant for a “split tender”, which will then allow you to pay x amount from your Allgo Mastercard Gift Card, and the remainder using another payment source eg cash, debit or credit card.




Do I need a PIN for my card?


No, the card is NOT a Chip & PIN card. It has a magstripe at the back and this is used to “swipe” the card at the retailer checkout to pay for purchases.

In fact if you try and enter a PIN at a retailer store payment terminal, the system may automatically block your card. In his case you will need to contact us to unblock your card.





Spending Online

How do I use my card online?


Firstly, you will need to register your card for secure online payments. Once registerd, you can spend on any ecommerce website using the 16-digit card number, the Valid Thru date, and the 3-digit security code.




What if my online purchase is greater than the balance on my card?


Unfortunately, unlike instore purchases, you cannot get a “split tender” for online transactions (a split tender is where you to pay x amount from your Allgo Mastercard Gift Card, and the remainder using another payment source eg debit or credit card).

So, for online transactions, you need to make sure there are sufficient balance on your card for the full purchase price.

My transaction was cancelled, but my card still got charged?


If you cancel a transaction, or if a transaction was not completed but your card was still charged, the funds may be in a "pending" state. You will need to contact the retailer to release the pending funds back onto your card. The pending period is set by each retailer individually.
