To sign up for a prepaid card, does there need to be one name that the card is issued to? Or can I apply for a prepaid card that can be used by multiple individuals?

Answered on

Each card may have only one cardholder name on it. However, you can add an authorized user to a prepaid card. The authorized user can use your prepaid card or get a separate card linked to your prepaid account. When you authorize somebody to use your card though, you will be responsible for any unpaid charges. Make sure the credit card issuer adds the authorized users to prepaid cards. For example, American Express can add authorized users to prepaid cards.
