How can we activate a card?
Activate an Adyen Issuing card
To start making payments a card needs to be activated. For security reasons, we advise keeping the card inactive until the user receives the card.
Activate a card from your Customer Area
- Log in to the Balance Platform Customer Area.
- Go to Payment instruments.
- Select the preferred payment instrument from the list.
- Select Change card status and set the New Status to Active.
- Select Change status.
Tip: Activate a card via an API call.

One you set the card status to Active, you need to perform a chip and a PIN transaction. After this, the contactless function will be active.
