How does the balance transfer work from my OnePay Visa card to my OnePay Mastercard®?

When you tell us you want to transfer your balance we begin the process that day.

To allow us to transfer your full balance across to your Mastercard, we need to block your Visa card the evening of the requested transfer. But don't panic! We will make sure your balance has been transferred to your new Mastercard by 9am the next day.

We will let you know when we are starting the balance transfer and when it has completed by contacting you via email.

Please note: we can only perform balance transfers on Sunday - Thursday evenings, therefore you can expect your transferred balance to be in your Mastercard account on Monday - Friday mornings. If you request a balance transfer on a Saturday, it will land in your new account on the Monday morning.
