Can I use the Caxton app offline? Do I need data roaming switched on?
You can still use the app offline. Caxton advises that you keep data roaming switched off and use Wi-Fi when it is available.
The app will display the rates it last accessed and update when there is a data connection. When loading your card you will receive the current Caxton exchange rates as display on the Caxton website.
Please note that you will only be able to log in when offline if you have selected the option to stay logged in and have set a PIN.
How much does it cost?
The Caxton app is free.
I’ve downloaded the app and I have a Caxton card. What do I need to know?
Make sure you’re familiar with all the features of the app – we want you take full advantage of its benefits (see FAQ above). You should also know that:
you can only top up your currency card twice a day and the same restrictions apply via the Caxton app
we do not charge you for using the app or topping up your card. We do however recommend that you that you keep data roaming switched off and use Wi-Fi when it is available to avoid your mobile provider charging you for data roaming.
you will only be able to log in when offline if you have selected the option to stay logged in and have set a PIN.
when choosing the PIN for your phone, we recommend that you choose one that is different to your currency card PIN.

I’ve just received my Caxton card. Can I top up immediately via the app?
No. You must complete one transaction on a registered debit card via the website before loading your card via the app.
Are there any minimum or maximum load limits via the app?
The minimum load on your Caxton card will depend on the currency of your card. Please refer to our limits table for full details. Your card cannot be loaded more than twice in any one day. We reserve the right to refuse to accept any particular loading transaction.
