How can I pay my home country bills from the US?
Paying your home country bills from the US is possible, but not with the PODERcard Debit. However, feel free to review some options for paying bills abroad.
Important Note: The following payments are prohibited through the PODERcard Debit bill payment service:
- Payments to Billers outside the United States or its territories

What happens if I am abroad?
If you travel abroad you can still use your PODERcard Debit to make purchases and withdraw cash, however, note that there may be some additional charges. If you are conducting a transaction in a currency other than US dollars, the merchant, network, or card association that processes the transaction may convert any related debits or credits to US dollars in accordance with their current policies.
You will be charged a fee equal to 3% of the transaction amount* (including credits and cancellations) for each transaction (in US or foreign currency) that you make at merchants (including foreign websites) outside the United States or in a foreign currency. This includes cash withdrawals.
*See Deposit Account Agreement for fees and additional details.
