Automatic and manual payments are the two different methods that Privacy.com offers to collect funds to pay for purchases made with Privacy Cards.
If you select Automatic Payments (AutoPay), your new Privacy Cards will work just as they always have, and your connected funding source will be debited automatically once a purchase has been authorized and completed by a merchant.
If you select Manual Payments, you will need to first mail in a separate request form and may need to submit ID verification. Once verified, you will be responsible for submitting payments on an ongoing basis for purchases made using your Privacy Cards.
For the simplest and smoothest experience, we recommend choosing Automatic Payments.
