Mobile Bank With Virtual Debit Card

When it comes to opening accounts in the US for non-resident US LLCs, there are several mobile or digital banking options that you can consider. These include both well known and lesser known options.

That said, it can be difficult for non-resident US LLCs to access these options. The main reason for this is that digital banks typically serve customers with a strong US presence, either through their customers, suppliers, or by having local operations.

And, since most non-resident US LLCs, do not have any US business activities (by virtue of being non-resident), this can be difficult to demonstrate. Of course, that doesn’t stop many non-resident US LLCs from successfully opening accounts.

However, digital banks are known to close customer accounts on a frequent basis. So, having a backup account may be worth considering. This is especially true if more digital banks follow in the footsteps of Brex and change their business model, resulting in widespread account closures.

If you’re in the process of registering a US LLC, it’s important to compare where to register a US LLC but also why you should not form an LLC in Wyoming, Delaware, or Nevada depending on your business type.

How to Apply for a Physical Debit Card With a Mobile Bank

In certain instances, opening an account with a mobile bank and receiving a virtual debit card can also lead to a physical debit card. In fact, some of the most popular digital banking options offer this as an option.

To obtain a physical debit card with a mobile bank, you will first need to open an account, which will automatically come with a virtual card. In most cases, you will need to request a physical card, which can typically be done through the mobile or online app.

Alternatively, if you’re searching for the best business payment solution it’s also important to consider the difference between a payment processor and an ISO. We share everything you need to know about US payment processors at the link above.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are two of the most common questions that we receive from people looking to open an account with a mobile bank to access virtual debit cards. If you have further questions you would like answered, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly.

What Mobile Banks Have Virtual Cards?

Many major banks are starting to offer virtual cards. However, if you are looking to open accounts for a US LLC, you will likely need to open an account with one of the mobile banking platforms that cater to such entities. This is especially true if you are looking to open remotely and your US LLC is considered non-resident in the USA.

Which Bank Offers a Virtual Credit Card Upon Opening an Account?

No banks offer a virtual credit card upon opening an account unless you have previously completed a credit check with the bank and they have approved a credit application. The reason for this is that banks are required to understand the likelihood of you repaying any credit products that are extended to you before they can make credit available.
