What is Transcash?

Transcash is a service that works like a prepaid bank card. Ordered online or bought in store, this card is used in much the same way as a telephone card.

It allows several types of transactions: buying on the Internet, withdrawing money, sending money to relatives, managing a sum of money for other people (e.g. pocket money for children), receiving income such as wages.

Moreover, its functionalities bring it closer to a classic credit card, but without affiliation with a bank account.

How Transcash works

Prepaid cards can be purchased online on the Transcash site or from traditional retail chains such as Franprix, Auchan, etc.

The consumer recharges his Transcash card by buying coupons on sale in tobacconists (between 50 and 500 euros per coupon) or by making a bank transfer.


There are three commercial offers available to individuals:

  • the Easy formula includes a black card and a red card. The balance of the base card is limited to 250 euros;
  • the Essential formula, unlike the first offer, can go up to 2,500 euros. To have this card, the customer must send an identity document;
  • the Max formula has a black card as well as four red ones. And the available balance is 5000 euros. To benefit from this offer, the customer must provide proof of income and residence, in addition to his identity document. Note: it is possible to add two more red cards (10 euros per card).

On the other hand, there is a support board in black color. And other cards can be linked to the main one. They are called red cards. This makes it possible to have several potential beneficiaries of the sums. And transfers made from the base card to the red cards are free.

For the option to be accessible, a RIB Transcash will be sent to the cardholder. He will only have to communicate it to his employer.
