Everything you need to know about this card
What’s the difference between a prepaid card and a credit card?
The KBC Business Prepaid Card is a card you load in advance. You can only use the amount loaded onto the card, the amount used is debited instantly from your KBC Business Prepaid Card, and your balance cannot go below zero. In other words, you are not paying 'on credit'. Apart from that, you use the card in exactly the same way as you would a credit card.
How do I put money on the KBC Business Prepaid Card?
You can manage your KBC Business Prepaid Card easily online via the KBC Business Dashboard. It has a convenient quick load button for putting money on the card, but you can also top up by credit transfer. You can load a maximum of 1,250 euros per top-up and a maximum of 5,000 euros can be loaded per card. Tip: instructions on loading your card appear at the bottom or on the back of your KBC Business Prepaid Card.
Once the card is loaded
You will be able to access the money within an hour.
What are the limitations of the KBC Business Prepaid Card?
The balance on your KBC Business Prepaid Card cannot go below zero i.e. you can't go into the red which means you can't run up any credit.
You cannot use the KBC Business Prepaid Card to pay in places where the balance is not checked in real time. Examples include tollbooths, filling stations*, vending machines, underground car parks, when on board aeroplanes and when hiring a car.
* Additional information for paying at filling stations: if there is a point-of-sale terminal outside, you can refuel, though it is best to make sure that the available balance on your card is at least 125 euros. Because the exact amount of the payment is not known in advance, a set amount from your available balance is reserved each time you refuel to ensure that you can make the payment. That amount is usually 125 euros. Settlement takes place two days after you have refuelled, and you will be paid back the difference.
What is the spending limit for this card?
- Cash withdrawals: as standard, the maximum amount you can withdraw using your KBC Business Prepaid Card is set at 650 euros every four days. You can adjust this limit via the KBC Business Dashboard. There is no monthly maximum.
- Card payments: there are no spending limits when you pay with your KBC Business Prepaid Card. However, the maximum amount you can have on your card is limited to 5,000 euros. You can top up your card as often as you like via the KBC Business Dashboard.
Pay quickly, easily and safely with contactless
Contactless makes paying effortless. Just hold your card close to the payment terminal reader, wait for confirmation and you’re done. Sometimes you’ll be asked to enter your PIN first
Contactless payments are processed in the same way as when you insert your card into the terminal and enter your PIN. If you prefer not to use your card’s contactless feature, it’s easy to disable in KBC Touch, KBC Mobile or the KBC Business Dashboard.

You can use KBC Touch, KBC Mobile and KBC-Online for Business to manage your card. You can:
- Specify where and when your card can be used (like at home and/or abroad)
- Enable or disable your credit card for online purchases
Use the KBC Business Dashboard to specify which staff get billing statements as PDF or CSV files – or both.
