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.
Authorised Users have restricted access to the Visa Credit Card account – they cannot request any changes to the account, apart from card cancellation and replacement.
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.
