Yandex.Money Bank Card

The card operates together with your Wallet. They both share common balance.
Payments: pay anywhere you want—in supermarkets, cafes, and the gas stations. Online stores will do, too.
If a reader is marked with Contactless Payments logo, simply tap your card against it: works for payments amounting less than 1,000 rubles
You won't need to specify your PIN.
Cash: you can withdraw cash at any ATMs all over the world..
Bonuses: this is a MasterCard—you can enjoy all campaigns carried out by MasterCard.
Common balance: how it works
The card and your Wallet complement one another: they have different numbers and a common balance.
The card is a material carrier for your Wallet: add money to your Wallet, then you can pay with it in a cafe
or gas station. Anywhere the cards are accepted for paying with. When you pay from a card, its balance decreases.
The Wallet serves as an online banking system for your card. Track your balance on our site
or in a Yandex.Money mobile app, activate text message notifications, adjust regular payments—for your phone,
the internet service, home utilities.
Cost of the card, commissions applied, and other conditions
The card expires in three years. Its servicing costs 300 rubles: you only pay once upon the card issue. Delivery
is for free to any country.
No commission applied for paying. Exception: if a retail outlet has an MCC (Merchant Category Code) of a cash withdrawal or money transfer
MCC represents a type of a retail outlet. If you pay in a book store, we receive code 5732, if you pay at an electronic store, we receive code 5942. In these cases everything is okay and commission is not applied.
Sometimes stores may choose the code of a money transfer between cards: 4829, 6012, 6050, 6051, 6534, 6538, 6540. If the bank sends us one of these codes, the commission will be charges automatically. In this case you can contact this store's customer's support and explain the problem with the MCC.
Commission for withdrawing cash is  3% of the amount  (but no less than 100 rubles). Also this commission is applied
if you perform the follwing:

     — issue and add money to Russian Standard Bank's virtual card;

Before going abroad
The bank can block the card, if it was paid with in Moscow yesterday and in Hong Kong today. It looks like
the card details were stolen (and it often appears to be true).

whe and where you are going: via a special form on our site or at +7 (495) 974#8209;3586
Converting to other currency
Yandex.Money MasterCard is in rubles, because your Yandex.Money Wallet is also in rubles.
If you pay in another currency than rubles, an equivalent of this amount in rubles is debited from your Wallet. In a couple of days, an entry of additional debiting or crediting
appears in your History. The amount may vary from several rubles or even kopeks depending on your payment amount. This is an exchange rate difference.
The money is converted according to MasterCard rate + 2.7%. The story is the same:
  1. The payment amount in rubles is being reserved on the card according to the current exchange rate.
  2. MasterCard processes the payment for one-two business days. The rate for this period changes.
  3. We debit the amount according to the new rate: if the foreign currency rate has grown, the difference is debited,
    if it decreased, the difference is returned to your card.
What to do, if the card is lost or stolen
If you have already activated the card, cancel it as soon as possible. The corresponding button is under ‘Bank Cards’ section. If you cannot cancel
