These are cards that are free and instant. They can be loaded online via Bitcoin, or by other credit cards since they are not related to Uber. Below are some examples of some of the most commonly used cards:

 

  • EntroPay The card is simple, free and fast to create. Recharging the card with Visa and Amex could be a problem and it is recommended if you have a MasterCard
  • ZapZap -This is a new card. From $ 50 for use 10 times
  • Avanta This card allows Bank Transfers and Easy Payment but comes with a shipping cost of $25 to $180 + VAT, and issuance of $99 + VAT
  • EcoPayz
  • PayoneerPhysical plastic card with an annual fee of USD30
  • Wirex -Bitcoins and bank transfers with requirements
  • Xapoand  SatoshiTango – Bitcoins

 

CardNow and Neteller no longer work

 

At your first attempt, Uber will not let you pay with the prepaid cards, but they will be enabled after 24 business hours. In the event that it still doesn’t work, report it through the App Help> Account and Payment Profile> Manage payment methods> Problem with prepaid cards.

 

There are some steps to complete:

 

  1. Go to  EntroPay  and choose USD in Card currency.
  2. Load balance with Credit Card users will not be able to get the virtual card until they havedeposited a minimum balance of US$
  3. The suggested 50USD amount will appear, manually change it to 5 USD.
  4. In some instances, it will say there was a problem with the authorization of the Credit Card. Call the number on the back of the card and select the option to pre-authorize spending by internet purchase. indicate that it is by purchase on a foreign website, for the company Entropay.

Some Argentine banks and operators may not authorize payments to Entropay. Try using MasterCard since it usually works. VISA also tends to refuse. You can also try calling again, it depends on who attends and the insistence. If it does not work, you might have to try using the other cards.

 

  1. When the balance is uploaded to the VISA Virtual Card, it will show all the data of the Entropay card, which will then be entered into payment means within the Uber app as an Argentine card! The payments are usually enabled with the new card the next business day

 

Every EntroPay recharge has a commission of 4.95% but it is compensated with the discount of 25% off until 31/3/17 for users of prepaid cards, with which users get a 20% net saving!

 

Method 2

 

When using Argentine credit cards for paying Uber, it is important that you make sure that the transactions are in USD and not in Argentine currency. They will otherwise refuse, or work for a few trips and then suddenly stop.

 

Method 3

 

Keep trying using different Argentine credit cards until you find the one that will work for you. The cards all work differently for different people, most likely depending on the person authorizing payments on the other side.
