Click on the payee with an (!) to receive information regarding any problems with your account with a particular payee and instructions on how to resolve the issue.

When utilizing CardSwap, you may receive notification from some payees that your account is being accessed from a location different than where you are located. This is caused by payees detecting a login from our servers rather than your location. In order to perform the swap, our system must access your account with each payee.
When utilizing CardSwap, you may receive notifications from some payees that your account is being accessed from an unknown device. This may occur if you have selected “remember me” upon login and the payee has registered your device. If the CardSwap system accesses an account with these settings in place, the payee may notify you because our system is different than what you typically use to access your account.
