How to order, activate and use my virtual Swile Card ?

Would you like to have a virtual Swile Card with the color of your choice ? This article tells you how to go about ordering, activating it and, of course, how to spend with it!

Your virtual card can be used in the same way as your physical card. The only difference is that it lives in your digital Swile wallet instead of the physical one in your pocket.

Please note! If you have received a physical card already activated, be aware that this card is both physical and virtual. You can use it for your online purchases even before you receive it in your hands. 

Order your own virtual card

To order your virtual card, it's easy, just follow the steps below:

From your Swile account, go to My Swile Cards section, then select the mceclip0.png. If you don't see the My Swile cards section on your phone, just click on the two card icon _cone_deux_cartes.PNG in the bottom middle of your Swile app.

If you have the option to choose between a physical and virtual card, press the virtual card option and choose the color and engraving of your choice. 


Activate my virtual Swile Card

Directly from your Swile account (app or computer), go to the My cards section then swipe right to see your Virtual Card .

Click on Activate card and you should get a confirmation code by text message. Enter this code when prompted.

💡 You can do this from your phone or computer!


Use my virtual Swile Card

Same as with a physical card, you can pay in person or online with your virtual card!

To pay in stores: from your app, activate the Apple pay or Google Pay option with your phone.

To pay online: you just have to click on your virtual card (from your account) then on Show number. The card number, the expiration date and the CVC (3-digit code usually on the back of the card) are shown to enter at checkout.
