The prepaid cards are used by customers looking to transact online or outside the country and before the recent update prepaid cardholders didn’t pay annual fees – only paying a flat US$2.5 per transaction charge.

Considering that this is a forex card, it’s safe to assume the $15 and $20 respectively, will be paid in US$.
