You’ll be referred to as the “Primary Cardholder” or “Principal Cardholder” with the authorised user referred to as the “Secondary Cardholder” or “Authorised User.”
The Authorised User shares the credit limit that you’ve been assigned. They are not given an additional limit.
We issue only one monthly statement per account – this will show both the name of the Principal Cardholder and the Authorised User.

The Principal Cardholder must activate the Authorised User’s card. Principal Cardholders can activate the card through their Open24 online banking. Please note that activating the Principal Cardholder’s card will automatically activate the Authorised User’s card.
