Once implemented, a stock of cards is ordered through LSC’s secured Prepaid Access website by a designated Administrator. Credit Unions store those cards in a vault until issued to members.

Marketing materials that help showcase the Gift Card program are available for nominal fee. These can be ordered directly through Prepaid Access’ Marketing tab.
