Activating your Rooster Card

To activate your child’s card, login to the RoosterMoney app using your parent login.

When you activate the card, we graduate all of the child’s tracker money to real money. This amount is moved from your parent account to their account. Only the money in the child’s Spend pot goes on to the card itself, the funds in the other pots are held separately.

To get ready to activate you might need to:

  • Add money to your parent account
  • Reset your child’s tracker balance
  • Adjust your child’s tracker balance

Once that’s done, go to your Family Dashboard. Under your child’s icon there is a button labelled Activate card. Tap that and confirm that the card has arrived. Confirm that you are happy to transfer the money, then the card is active.

Remember, the first time you spend money with your Rooster Card you will need to enter the PIN. After that, you can make contactless payments and, if enabled, online payments.
