Before using the card

Auto Reload [GAICA Flex Prepaid Card]

Our AutoReload service allows you to set the amount (the AutoReload Amount) that your GAICA Prepaid Card will be automatically reloaded with from your PowerFlex account when your Card balance falls below a pre-set low balance threshold (the Threshold). Registration is necessary to use the AutoReload service.

Please note that card activation is prerequisite for the AutoReload services.

<Reload timing>
A few seconds after your GAICA Prepaid Card balance falls below the Threshold, your Card will be automatically reloaded with the AutoReload Amount and the reloaded value will be immediately available to use.
