Do I need to deposit before my card will be sent?

Because our card is a prepaid card, it works differently than a credit card for example. Whereas with a credit card you are essentially borrowing funds every time you make a purchase, a debit/prepaid card like ours will draw from your pre-funded balance.  So in order to get the card, it needs to have a pre-funded starting balance.
