Walmart offers a prepaid MasterCard that allows cardholders to load money through cash, check or direct deposit. Benefits of using a Walmart MoneyCard for direct deposit include instant access to funds, no monetary loading fee for the transaction and the ability to deposit all or part of the paycheck.


In-Store Set Up

Individuals can purchase MoneyCard prepaid cards at Walmart stores or online. Those shopping in-store can ask the Money Center employee to set up the direct deposit. Setting up direct deposit in-store will require bringing along a paycheck stub that provides employer details including the address.
