guys, im new to this n have gone through the related threads n have few questions.

activation
i know we can activate via sms but can we activate via email. if so whats the email n what all info we need to provide for the same?
cant activate via sending message via amazon seller messages?

registration on https://www.youfirst...in
can we register before activation of the card?
i guess we can register multiple cards under single acct. correct me if im wrong.

mastercard secure code registration
how to register for this before making a transaction?
i know we can register at first transaction but want to avoid hassle.

usage
where all its working n which all wallets?

im not upto date with wallets not charging for bank transfer. which all are free of as of now n any limits or conditions?


created a new thread to have end-end info on rbl. other threads have mixed up other info as well.

1) Can be activated by sending email to [email protected]..in
2) I have never sent any activation request through amazon. So I don’t know

3) I searched a lot but couldn’t find any MSC registration page like we have for Axis bank VBV page whereat we can register before actual transaction.

@rajrocks I am in the process of getting my first ever order of RBL cards activated and loaded. So you’ll have to wait for my end-to-end experience. But here is what I already know:

(1) Like @desidealer mentioned, you can send an email to [email protected]..in with just the card reference numbers (RAxxxx). BTW, this info is already mentioned in the instructions page which comes with the Amazon invoice in the package.

(2) I suppose you can send activation requests via Amazon’s “contact seller” option, but this is neither the official way nor would I recommend it.

(3) Once they activate the cards, you would receive individual activation confirmation SMS’es for each card. <—- I have only reached this stage for my cards so far.

(4) After the activation, you apparently need to wait for “money loaded” SMS’es before you can actually use the cards.

(5) Registration on YouFirst’s website is optional. But it seems like a good idea for having access to a transaction history for each card.

(6) x

P.S. I will update this post once I have gone through the complete process.

thx bro. reg 2 point i would prefer it as it would avoid any promo or junk mails from rbl or if they share. have been receiving couple of junk mails from unknown sites now days. may be payback shared my mail id. so thinking using amazon seller mail option as it would not expose the mail id. also the platform is secure so no issues of any misuse.

pls do let me know ur thoughts.

I think the person handling YouFirst’s seller account on Amazon might honor your first such request but then they would ask you to follow the process. You can always send the activation email from a temp/junk email account as they never reply to the email. I have a couple of email accounts solely for such purposes. smile

Bro, if you think they already have your email registered at Amazon, then why are you worried about getting spam as a result of sending the activation request? I think I just caught you having a brain…you know what. biggrin

Anyway, no, I don’t think the email or the phone number you send the activation requests from has to match with the one in your Amazon account.

They are sending them in deactivated state and with Zero balance keeping security in mind. So how does it gonna make sense if cards can be activated by sending sms or email from non-registered account/no ?

babaji, dont u think it might be automated ie. sync of mail id n phone no. shared by amazon system with rbl system n the mail id is not exposed to naked eye. mail id n phone is not exposed usually in banking system. ya i have brain n functioning at high level toungueout

ya seems so coz u got activation message when u used non amazon mail id. so seems possible.
had enquired the same earlier n everyone said we have to use the amazon mail n mob for activation

I used youfirst two months back, you just need to send email with ref nos. thats it smile
Once activated you will get message with money loaded confirmation….
That time when they launched they activated within 2 hours but today i sent mail, haven’t activated yet smile

Each time you make transaction, you will get SMS about the transaction deatails, money deducted and left balance info. biggrin

Hope this helps…

babuji, your phone number is indeed exposed to every Amazon seller you order from. But your email isn’t. I know this for a fact. And that’s why I sent activation request from another email id.

There is no automation/obfuscation/abstraction. And you did have a brain freeze, to put it mildly. biggrin

Anybody can send the activation requests — even the courier boy, if he chooses to steal your package. This is a known security issue. But you would receive the activation/transaction SMS’es on your mobile number registered with Amazon.

And the user/you would need OTPs sent to the Amazon registered mobile for online transactions.

hmm…Experienced the same with you-first today… However it just defeats the whole purpose of sending cards in deactivated state n zero balance. They should rather follow the woohoo model for TC then…

babaji, do one thing, if u have any open order, try the option of contact seller n u would be told by amazon/written that dont put any personal info like mail id or mob no. . i dont have any open orders as of now orelse would have shared the screenshot. i had seen this in case of tc n axis. pls do try.

Actually, even their model allows for the same security loopholes. Keep in mind that these are gift cards and people would usually order these for other people. So such loopholes can only be avoided via the GCI activation process.

I am already aware of what you just wrote. What’s your point again?

Before you say something tangential again, let me once again mention that the seller already knows your mobile number. Did you not realize the fact that it’s printed on the shipping label/invoice? But, as I mentioned before, the sellers don’t get your email address.

You can always send the activation email from a temp/junk email account as they never reply to the email. I have a couple of email accounts solely for such purposes. smile

wait a sec. u can only activate via the email used at amazon acct right? u cant use any other mail. this is what i knew. correct me if im wrong.

Bro, if you think they already have your email registered at Amazon, then why are you worried about getting spam as a result of sending the activation request? I think I just caught you having a brain…you know what. biggrin

Anyway, no, I don’t think the email or the phone number you send the activation requests from has to match with the one in your Amazon account.


babaji, dont u think it might be automated ie. sync of mail id n phone no. shared by amazon system with rbl system n the mail id is not exposed to naked eye. mail id n phone is not exposed usually in banking system. ya i have brain n functioning at high level toungueout

ya seems so coz u got activation message when u used non amazon mail id. so seems possible.
had enquired the same earlier n everyone said we have to use the amazon mail n mob for activation

babuji, your phone number is indeed exposed to every Amazon seller you order from. But your email isn’t. I know this for a fact. And that’s why I sent activation request from another email id.

There is no automation/obfuscation/abstraction. And you did have a brain freeze, to put it mildly. biggrin


babaji, do one thing, if u have any open order, try the option of contact seller n u would be told by amazon/written that dont put any personal info like mail id or mob no. . i dont have any open orders as of now orelse would have shared the screenshot. i had seen this in case of tc n axis. pls do try.


In case of Youfirst, ph no. is shared with seller, email isn’t cool

They are sending them in deactivated state and with Zero balance keeping security in mind. So how does it gonna make sense if cards can be activated by sending sms or email from non-registered account/no ?

Anybody can send the activation requests — even the courier boy, if he chooses to steal your package. This is a known security issue. But you would receive the activation/transaction SMS’es on your mobile number registered with Amazon.

And the user/you would need OTPs sent to the Amazon registered mobile for online transactions.


hmm…Experienced the same with you-first today… However it just defeats the whole purpose of sending cards in deactivated state n zero balance. They should rather follow the woohoo model for TC then…

Actually, even their model allows for the same security loopholes. Keep in mind that these are gift cards and people would usually order these for other people. So such loopholes can only be avoided via the GCI activation process.

hmm.. thats why would prefer ready to go TC cards from woohoo…rather than waiting for first activation process n then loading of money in you first card…..

hmm.. thats why would prefer ready to go TC cards from woohoo…rather than waiting for first activation process n then loading of money in you first card…..GCI activation process of 5 days just sucks… waiting since last sunday for activation of cards.

Yes, instant prepaid cards purchasable online are the need of the hour. You may not be aware, but Axis even provided them until last year. Unfortunately, it didn’t last long because of some security/RBI regulation issue. Now they only give those instant cards to specific corporate customers.

I am already aware of what you just wrote. What’s your point again?

Before you say something tangential again, let me once again mention that the seller already knows your mobile number. Did you not realize the fact that it’s printed on the shipping label/invoice? But, as I mentioned before, the sellers don’t get your email address.


then ok. i didnt see that.

Glad we are finally on the same page. smile

So, to conclude, you will now simply send the card activation request from a temp/junk email account, right?

Just send sms to 9222200566 from your mobile, type ACT RA000xxxxx.

That’s it, you will get sms once it got activated

No need to send mail or no need to register with their site.

I did the same for my 11 cards from same phone number , and used all cards in mobikwik and paytm.
