PayPower PayPower Reloadable card

I bought a PayPower card at store, paid $9 and change to activate it with $75.00 on it and went home to register card online for reloadable services. I downloaded the app, to create an account I answered 5/5 questions properly, but app would not let me create an account. I called customer service on July 5, 2023 and was told the card was only a gift card and not reloadable.

I went back to store, but no help there, so I had to buy another card on July 5 for $75, pay another activation fee and tried to register that card to no avail. Both times I called customer service they wanted to know the colour of card and digest on back starting with 124. I stl do not know why I cannot create an account or reload my card. I have deleted the app, used small balances on both cards on puchases. Then I cut them up and swear I will never buy another PayPower card, ever.

I called Customer Service twice and both times I was disappointed with no help, no information and no service.

Desired outcome: No desired outcome because I do not want to deal with them ever again.

PayPower Check not received

My name is Joseph Ting and my account no.is [protected]...my email is [protected]@gmail.com...This is my worst experienced ever in a financial institution...i have a hypertension and paypower support even makes it worst...They closed my account and I was told that the positive balance of $2000 will be mailed out to me by check and the check was issued last Feb 8 and I have the evidence and screenshot of the transactions...First someone from the second level of support her name is Pooja and sent me an email that they have already sent the check and the email was dated Feb 13...I can send you all their emails to me with false info regarding my check and the latest was Jose who did the same exact thing to me and just give me hope and wait for nothing!

PayPower Paypower wont reply and deduct fee for no reason

My prepaid card often declines when I try to make a payment at any place although the funds in the card are sufficient, could you please let me know why this is happening? There is no refund taking place below the card information, and someone told me that the express consent to have the card blocked, which a new card will be sent over, but a 10 dollars had been charged and I don't believe that I will be liable for this.

Desired outcome: refund without charging the fee

Is PayPower Legit?

PayPower earns a trustworthiness rating of 82%

Highly reliable. Use their services with confidence, yet trust but verify.

Our conclusion: ComplaintsBoard rates PayPower highly, which means their services are pretty reliable. Despite this, their 35% complaint resolution rate raises questions. We recommend users check reviews and complaints about PayPower to understand what to expect from them.

A long registered date for paypower.com can be seen as a positive aspect for PayPower as it indicates a commitment to maintaining the website and its domain name for a long period of time. It also suggests that the company is organized and has taken steps to secure its online presence.

The age of PayPower's domain suggests that they have had sufficient time to establish a reputation as a reliable source of information and services. This can provide reassurance to potential customers seeking quality products or services.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • PayPower has been found to only resolve 35% of 0 negative reviews, indicating a lack of commitment to addressing customer concerns. Many customers have experienced long wait times for responses or resolutions, unhelpful or inaccurate answers to their questions, and a lack of follow-up or updates on the status of their issues.
  • There was some difficulty in evaluating or examining the information or data present on the paypower.com. This could be due to technical issues, limited access, or website may be temporarily down for maintenance or experiencing technical difficulties.
  • Paypower.com has relatively low traffic compared to other websites, it could be due to a niche focus, but could also indicate a potential lack of traffic and popularity. The paypower.com may offer a niche product or service that is only of interest to a smaller audience.
  • We conducted a search on social media and found several negative reviews related to PayPower. These reviews may indicate issues with the company's products, services, or customer support. It is important to thoroughly research the company and its offerings before making any purchases to avoid any potential risks.

PayPower PayPower Reloadable Master Card

I did a reload on my PayPower Master Card on Aug 9, 2022 and the transaction of $500 was approved but on the receipt, it asked me to "CALL BANK". I called the CS as advise and submitted all the copies of the receipt, front and back of my PayPower card. The case was escalated to their level 2 support and they said they had opened a ticket on this but up to 2 months, I did not receive any update from them even with my repeated email follow up. The CS supervisor keeps ignoring my email and I am losing my patience.

Desired outcome: I demand a detailed investigation my case and want my $500.00 to be loaded to my PayPower Master Card asap.

PayPower pay power MC

I went in 2 weeks ago to a gas station to load $500 on a card. I Went to use it and it was declined. I then called and spent hours on the phone with customer service for them to tell me it will be 2 business days to receive a response after I email in proof of purchase and proof of activation. WHICH I DID. still nothing. I keep calling them and they refuse to give me a refund and tell me that I need to wait for someone to call me back I call every day and spend hours on the phone on hold for someone to resolve my issue.

Desired outcome: I WANT A REFUND

PayPower stolen cards/customer service

103 days ago i have had 14 cards stolen from me. i have two companies we buy lots of your cards to pay vendors aswell as to give to our customers and employees. after the way i have been treated unless this resolves my issue i will never purchase another one of your cards again. $5,250.00 divided into 14 cards. all gone. and no one could give me an answer, your customer service reps kept telling me that secondary level will contact me within two business days. i would wait for days to weeks only to never hear from them so i would call again and same result. today i finally today February 14 2021 got to speak with secondary level and they hung up on me three times then i got upset as i was not happy with her actions. as i spoke to her again i was not the nicest as i felt it was very unprofessional of her to hang up on a customer. i do apologize for that even though she was very rude i should not of been rude back. below are the last 4 digits of each card with the amount originally put on each card. i purchase your cards as you have a fraud protection service. as i have been frauded on these cards and am looking for assistants your reps are no where to be found. your card is $9.95 other companies are $5.95 or less i expected to be treated better for the extra money i spend as we buy anywhere from 10-50 cards a month.

the last three cards 7055,7056,7057 have been registered in someone else name I can only assume it was the person who stole them, i found this out from the first representative i spoke with on November 3rd 2021she was very nice willing to help locked all the other cards as they have not been registered to anyone yet even though all the money has been spent except for the odd dollar remaining on every card. she indicated to me that this would be solved promptly and they would issue new cards to me containing the original amounts on the 11 cards we got registered in my name but i would be out the amount on the three cards someone else has registered. How ever i would have to pay the activation fee again which i was ok with as being out $9.95 14 times plus the 3 $250 cards is much better then being out that plus the $5,250 that was stolen. since this conversation i have sent all the required emails containing all of the card information including the original receipts. and yet here i am writing to you still out $5,250 plus 14 activation fees.

my phone number is [protected] or email [protected]@novaintl.ca please feel free to contact myself at anytime if you have any questions/resolutions or concerns about any of this.

Desired outcome: please refund the original amounts I put on the cards, as the first representative on November 3rd indicated. please have your representatives never hang up on a customer as it is very insulting

PayPower Service fee

Customer ID: [protected] 13 January 2018

I received a Paypower card as gift card last year. I activated the card for a purchase but did not use the card again for about 12 months. Then I found out my card balance had been drained by service fees. Apparently the Paypower cannot charge service fees on gift cards but can charge fees once the card is upgraded. I was required to activate the card to start using it. I believed I was just activating the card. According to Paypower, I upgraded the card. There was no clear notice that I was upgrading the card and that fees would be charged.

The site should be required to provide simple and clear information that fees will be charged if an option is selected. The notice of fees should not just be buried in a multi page legal document.

PayPower I do not recommend PayPower

I was a long time user of PayPower and can't say anything good about them. Last time I ordered a prepaid Reload pack and when received it I was unhappy to discover that pin code was damaged. As soon as I noticed that I immediately contacted PayPower and demanded a replacement. Their rep was super nasty and instead of helping me he said that everything was my fault. I argued with them a lot until I finally was contacted by PayPower manager. That seemed like a good sign but as usual I received only empty promises and nothing was done, they never contacted me back or helped me.
Very poor service, I do not recommend using PayPower.

PayPower Meijer paypower card

I've had this Meijer Paypower Pre-Paid Debit Card for several years primarily used to receive my daughters Child Support via Direct Deposit onto the card. I made a purchase on 2/3/17 at Gardner White Furniture for $1, 199.98. When I proceeded to use my card again It was blocked. I called in immediately and was told to call back the next day because the department wasn't available to help me. So I called the very next day and another rep told me that the person who can take the block off was on break and to call back in an hour so I waited an hour and called and spoke to another rep that said my card would be ready to use in 5 minutes or less. I proceeded to use it and the charge declined so I called back and was told I was misinformed and it would take 1-3 business day. I waited and called on Monday and I was told 3-5 business days. I have called constantly but no one will resolve this matter. Those funds that were direct deposited on the card is from the State of Michigan for Child Support for my daughter. I emailed BlackHawk that If this matter is not resolved expeditiously I will be contacting the News Media and the State of Michigan and Report that the Company has Fraudulently taken my daughter's Child Support Funding.

PayPower Absolutely terrible service!

I' absolutely disgusted with PayPower and I would not recommend it to anyone. I had a huge issue with my card and when I contacted PayPower to get some assistance and support they did absolutely nothing to help. I was not able to take out my money and it was an emergency and they simply did not care. I contacted them numerous time and asked what was wrong with my card and how I could fix it but they did not reply! They are the worst ever!

PayPower Blocked card

I have been using this card for 2 years. All of a sudden my cards disappear after I tried to access it online. I called them, they told me 1 card was overdrafted 504.62, impossible! I only transfer money on that card for the kids games and music. Then they blocked my other card. I didn't have a dime in my pocket! I called them and all they can say is they are working on it, someone will call you in 2 to 3 days! I went back online and the website said under maintenance! Then later only 1 card appeared with a 0 balance. My main card with my money on it is still blocked! I will never use them again! You can't just play with people money!

The security of our customer's accounts and their funds is very important to us. We work diligently to do our best to prevent fraud. Generally, when an account is blocked it is due to suspected fraud. No fraud detection system is perfect, and occasionally, systems block cards where no fraud is involved. Most of the time documentation is required in order for us to verify the customer and any suspicious transactions. We are unable to provide specific details in response to this complaint as we are unable to locate the account with the minimal information provided. We apologize for any inconvenience that this customer may have experienced, but it resulted from our attempts to protect the customer and his/her accounts.

PayPower Prepaid visa card

I feel your pain! My husband is in Hospice with stage 4 lung cancer and they are holding roughly $450 on their so called Visa cards that I purchased that was needed to buy his feeding tube supplies and now I'm left with trying to find a way to buy his supplies because I'm pretty sure that after speaking with their "manager" I won't be getting a refund. I was told that both myself and my husband were on hold with them for a fraud block too, even though I gave all the correct info again and again. I suspect that they use the "fraud block" as an excuse to hold your funds never to be seen again. I'm filing a complaint with our State Attorney General's office. And I think our grocery store chain ( Giant Eagle) should not promote or carry these cards in their stores because they are promoting the problem. I'm not sure what else to do. I have to let other bills go to get his supplies. Honestly! I don't know how these people sleep at night?! I will let everyone I know to not use them because they are a SCAM! Best of luck to everyone and I hope you get your money back!

PayPower Registering a card

I have been using the paypower credit card for about 2 years now and had no problems in the beginning.
Now of late I cannot find the reload packs at most locations in Victoria that previously had them.
Last week we had to buy a card as no reload packs were available.
I am out of the country, my husband is in Victoria so I need the money transferred onto my existing card.
I registered the new card but verification was not passed ( unbelievable as I have registered numerous cards before).
Called customer service who said he could do the transfer but it would take 1-2 business days. Today is the 2nd day, I dont have the money and I have waited on the phone for an hour for a customer service rep but to no avail.
I am extremely dissatisfied as I find the service has completely deteriorated, even the reps seem to be less helpful. I have spent $50 and to date I cannot use my money.

PayPower Rejected Interac Payment

CREDIT CARD NO> [protected] - I made an Interac payment from your website last night at appx. 8:00 last nigh for $200. It was rejected because unknown to me I was over the limit of $250 per week which is not clearly indicated on your website. The money is now apparently in "cyberspace" as it has not been returned to my bank account. I asked finally after getting many conflicting stories from you customer service people "who need to go back to school" that I will get a call within 3 business days!
This is unacceptable!. This is a transaction from the Royal Bank of Canada through Interac to you and the money should have been returned within an hour at the latest! The problem is your end. One customer service person even told me to call Interac myself. Seriously? i expect that money in my account IMMEDIATELY. my e-mail address is [protected]@hotmail.com.
I can be reach until 4:30 at [protected] or after at the pone number as above.
