Funding the App

Once you have downloaded the PayRange app and created an account, you can add a payment source to the app. Open the app, select the menu bar located on the top left side of the app screen and select “Add Funds”. You can then add a payment method of your choice and specify the amount of money to load to the PayRange app. We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, Venmo, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, bank accounts, cryptocurrency, store gift cards and EBT in select states. If you select a payment source that falls under the “Instant Funding” then funds will be added to your prepaid balance instantly.

PayRange does not view, pass-through, or store card data, and card data is never sent to or stored on PayRange servers. Card data is securely sent directly to our processor and PayRange is issued a token. We only store the token along with the last four digits of the card.

The fastest way to reverse a funding is by using the in-app PayRange chat support. Look for the chat support icon located on the bottom right side of the screen. Tap on the chat support icon and then tap on “Reverse a Funding”. If you no longer have the PayRange app, you can email us at

Your prepaid balance never expires and can be used anywhere you see a “PayRange Accepted Here” sign. Click here to find locations enabled with PayRange.

When you add funds to the PayRange app, you will be given the option to preload your balance with “Instant” funding sources or “Standard” funding sources. The difference between these is the time it takes for your funds to be available to your prepaid balance. Apple Pay, Google Pay or a Credit or Debit card are all “Instant” funding sources, which means funds will be available to your prepaid balance instantly. The recommended minimum amount of money to preload to your account is $10.00. A convenience fee will apply to “Instant” funding amounts of $5.00 or less made with Card or Apple or Google pay.

Preloading your balance using your bank account or Cryptocurrency is a “Standard” funding source, which means funds will be added to your prepaid balance in a specified amount of time. You will not be able to use added funds until the transaction is cleared by the bank. You will not be charge any convenience fee for funding with “Standard Funding” sources.  Funding your prepaid balance with a Bank account typically takes 3-5 business days to clear whereas Cryptocurrency typically clears within one hour.

Our immi age verification solution was designed to provide a rigorous level of security in order to keep your data safe. Any personal data you add to immi or the PayRange app is encrypted into unreadable data that only you can unlock. Your encryption key is stored on your phone and is activated when you unlock the PayRange app with Face ID. PayRange and immi do not store or sell your sensitive personal information. The immi verification works in partnership with our third party provider, Intellicheck. Intellicheck has verified over 100 million identities and is used by some of the largest financial and banking companies, as well as law enforcement officials.

A Strong Cellular Signal Required and Bluetooth enabled:

For the immi in-app age verification service to verify your age and identity, you must have a moderate to strong cellular signal on your phone. If your phone’s cellular signal is weak, the age verification process will likely not be able to verify you.

If you are having difficulties verifying, please attempt the process again when your cell phone signal has improved.

The PayRange app connects to a PayRange enabled machine using Bluetooth. Make certain your phone or tablet’s Bluetooth is turned ON,

Setting up Biometrics (FaceID or TouchID) for repeat Purchases:

After you have been verified in the PayRange app, you will need to ensure you have set up a biometric ID on your phone, such as Face ID or Touch ID. If you are an Apple user, it is likely you have already set up either TouchID or FaceID when you set up your Apple phone for the first time.

Android users, please click here for instructions on how to set up face recognition for Android devices.

Our in-app immi age verification service is a one-time, fast and secure process. Users add a government-issued ID document and take a biometric selfie to create a reusable verified digital ID. Your ID document and any other personal details you add are encrypted into unreadable data that only you can access. It takes minutes to verify your identity details once to create your reusable ID. Once verified, you unlock the PayRange app using facial biometrics and pay the machine using the PayRange mobile App.

Age verification requires users to scan one government-issued ID to complete the age verification service. You can only add one ID document.

We support the following government-issued ID documents:

Passports, Driver’s licenses, and National identity cards.

If your document expires after you have added it to the PayRange app, you can replace it with a new version by going to My Profile Tab > Age Verification > Renew. You will then be prompted to verify your age using your new document.

If your document expires and you do not update it, you will not be able to use the PayRange app to purchase age-restricted products.

If you have multiple IDs from different countries, we recommend you add the ID document that belongs to your current country of residence, as this will make it easier to verify your age.

PayRange for age-restricted machines are located across the United States and Canada. To use the PayRange app to purchase age-restricted products, the machine must be equipped with PayRange. Look for a “PayRange accepted here” decal on the age-restricted machine, indicating that the machine accepts PayRange mobile payment and age-verification. If the PayRange app is not identifying the age-restricted machine, the machine is likely not equipped with PayRange and you will not be able to use the PayRange app to make a purchase. Search locations to find a machine near you.

If after attempting to be age-verified through the PayRange app, the app indicates the verification was unsuccessful this means PayRange cannot authorize the age-restricted transaction. PayRange is not able to provide the reason for an unsuccessful verification. We recommend you submit a support ticket with our third party provider for verification, Intellicheck. Click here to submit a support ticket with Intellicheck.

We need to capture a digital image of your face so we can compare your selfie to that of the picture on your ID. This ensures that we can confirm that you are who you say you are.
