What Is a White Label Debit Card?

A debit card is a bank card that is linked to your bank account. It enables you to make purchases and withdraw cash by using the funds you have deposited at the bank.

It operates pretty distinctly from a Prepaid Card. Unlike a debit one, this one is not linked to a bank account. Instead, you are spending money you loaded in the special prepaid card account in advance. No further payments or overdrafts are possible once you spend everything up until you top up your card.
