Setting up a Linked Account
Below is a quick guide on how to do this:
- Family member creates a Refresh ‘link’ account here making sure they tick the ‘is this a link account box’ and then adding their email address. They will then receive a validation email.
(Please note: It is important that the ‘is this a link account’ box is ticked to ensure the account can be linked to another account.)
- Student logs into their account and sends a ‘link’ account request through the ‘Account Links’ section found in the left hand menu of their Refresh account. They simply add the email address of the family member.
- Once the family member has accepted this request both the family member and the student must activate the link. This can be done through the ‘Account Links’ section by simply clicking ‘expand’ under the email address and then ‘activate link’.
- When the link is activated by both parties the family member then has the ability to top up the students Refresh card
You can then top up the account through the ‘purses’ section found in the left hand menu of their Refresh account. The ‘purse’ of the student needs to be expanded and then the ‘add funds’ button can be seen.The first time the family member adds credit to the account the payment card details can be saved to allow them to use the quick-load option making it quicker and easier to add credit to the students Refresh card.
