Reloadable card
A reloadable card is often called a prepaid credit card, prepaid Visa card or prepaid MasterCard, but it also can be reloaded with monetary value multiple times. It does not necessarily have to be associated with a bank account run by the owner of the card. They usually carry multiple fees, charged for purchase of the card, for use of the card and for reloading the card.
