In this article, we will explain the following topics about Rydoo cards on mobile.
Requesting a virtual card
1. Go to the cards module on the mobile app and select ‘Request virtual card’.
2. When requesting your first virtual card, you will see a pop-up asking you to fill in your phone number. When you make an online payment with a Rydoo card, you could receive an SMS message with a code to authorise the transaction. This is the reason why you need to make sure to have a valid phone number filled in.
3. You can choose to request a single-use or a multiple-use card.
With a single-use card, you can make a one-time payment.
With a multiple-use card, you can make multiple payments on a periodic basis. For example, it is possible to pay multiple different monthly subscriptions with one recurring card.
