When I click Call Shakepay, my card doesn't get added to my wallet or my card doesn't get activated

If you are not able to activate your card, verify your card or asked to contact issuer when calling Shakepay, please try these steps:

  • Make sure you are calling from the same phone number as listed on your Shakepay account.

  • If your phone number appears as a private caller id, you will need to temporarily "show your phone number" to activate the card. Our system activates the card based on the number you are calling from.

  • If you have 2 sims, remove the one which is not associated to your account.
