Company Registration

Card programs require account holders to pass an identity verification process before being allowed to transact. For example, if a card is reloadable, then identity verification is required because of regulatory mandates intended to prevent activities such as money laundering. This identity verification process is known as KYC (know your customer) and is performed on both the administrator and business resources.

To register the company, go to Penny Central and click on the register button. 

Step One - Account Details

Begin by entering the administrator’s personal details including SSN and date of birth. The administrator will have full access to the administrator tools, including the desktop portal and the phone app. 


Step Two - Business Details

Enter business details as directed including Company Registration Number and Tax ID.


Step Three - Bank Account Details

Once your registration has been submitted, we will make two small deposits (less than $1 in value) into your registered business bank account within 24 - 48 hours. We will withdraw the combined deposit amounts from your bank account immediately to net zero. Once you see these deposits in your bank account, you must log into the Penny Central Administration Account and enter these amounts where prompted, in the order that they appear on your statement. When your bank account has been verified you can proceed with the set up of your Penny Central Administration account.


Step Four - Summary
