How to use my card digitally?

You can make purchases with your smartphone:

Simply add your N26 card to your Apple Pay or Google Pay wallet in order to make purchases at merchants who support this payment method.

You can enable this feature before your card arrives in the mail to start using your N26 account straight away but also once you have received your card and activated it.

To add your card to your wallet follow these steps:

  1. Login to your N26 account

  2. Go to 'Actions'

  3. Select 'Card Settings' and swipe to select the card you want to add

  4. Select 'Add to Apple Pay' or 'Add to Google Pay'

Good to know:

  • Whilst waiting for your card to arrive this feature is available for 30 days after your physical card is being produced. If you don't activate your card within the timeframe then this feature will be suspended. Once you activate your card you will be able to continue using it digitally again.
  • This feature is not enabled if you reorder your card or upgrade to a premium membership without blocking your current card. In these cases your current card will continue working with 'Apple Pay' or 'Google Pay' until you activate your new card.
