About the card
What is Talent Card?

Is it a credit card or debit card?
The Talent Card is neither, it is a LytePay innovation. A credit card involves borrowing money from the bank, while a debit card draws upon your savings. The Talent Card utilizes your unpaid commissions. It doesn’t affect your credit rating, and you’ll never have to pay interest on ‘late payments’.
Do I need to pay for the card? What are the fees?
It is currently free to sign up for the card! There is a one-time transaction fee of 3.5% to top up your card from your LyteMoney, which is the same as the cashout fee.
