Activating your physical card

Before you can make a first purchase with your physical Mynt card, you need to activate the card.

You can activate the card in three different ways:

  • Scan the QR code
    Open your Mynt app and go to "cards" --> "activate card" and scan the QR code on the card to activate the card.
    ​

  • Enter the token

    If your phone cannot scan the QR code, click on "activate card" and enter the Token code found on the back of the card.
    ​

  • Via the website
    You can also activate cards via mynt.com. Go to "my cards", select the card you want to activate and 'activate card', then enter your token from the back of your card.

To use the physical card for online purchases, you need to turn on the online purchase function under card settings in mynt.com web environment.

First in-store purchase.

For your first in-store purchase, you need to insert the card into the reader and enter your PIN code.

After the first purchase, you can choose between swiping or inserting/swiping the card and entering your PIN. The card will send a signal to the Mynt app and you will receive a notification asking you to take a picture of the receipt. Fill in the category and VAT for your purchase and then click "send" - you're done!

PIN code

You can find your PIN code in the Mynt app:
​My cards--->Card settings--->Show pin

Virtual card

You can start shopping with the Virtual Card right away! It works for online purchases but can also be used for physical purchases and payments if added to your Apple or Google pay app. The virtual card has no PIN code.

To shop with the virtual card online, enter the card number which you can find under "card settings". Bank ID may be requested for verification of purchases.
