Frequently asked questions

What if I need to dispute a transaction?

If there is a transaction that you do not recognize or cannot resolve with a merchant, please submit a support ticket online providing the details of your dispute, including the date, transaction description and amount for the dispute process to be handled properly. If our investigation finds that an error occurred, your account will be refunded accordingly.

How does Brightwell protect my money?

Funds on your Brightwell card are insured up the amount on the card. Your Brightwell card and online accounts are protected through your credentials — a unique user name and password. Do not share this information with anyone. Your funds are no longer protected if you give your password, PIN, or CVV to someone else.

What if my card is lost or stolen?

To report a lost or stolen card, contact Support immediately via your Navigator online account by creating a support ticket or by calling +1 855-821-4694 or +1 404- 855-2475. Support will restrict the lost or stolen card and assist with replacing your card. Once you notify Support, your funds are no longer at risk.

How does the currency conversion work?

The balance of your Brightwell Card is maintained in US dollars or in Euros. Anytime your card is used to make a purchase or cash withdrawal in a currency other than the card currency, a currency conversion fee will apply. The transaction will be converted to your card currency and deducted from your card.

Can I send wages to my bank account from my Brightwell Card?

Yes. You can either allocate your wages to one bank account, or split between two bank accounts and a Brightwell Card. You can also create an OnDemand transfer. It is recommended that you allocate wages to your Brightwell Card for personal use while in port. Sending money to both your Brightwell Card and a beneficiary bank account provides you with the best of both worlds.

Is the Brightwell Card a credit card?

No, the Brightwell Card is not a credit card and it requires no traditional bank account. However, when making purchases you can select to run the card as Credit (preferred) or Debit (PIN required).
