Netspend History

Immigrant brothers from Mexico, Bert and Roy Sosa, were attending college when they realized that many of their friends were unable to purchase items online because they had no credit cards or bank accounts. Using their pooled money of $750, they founded Netspend in 1999.

The company offers a prepaid Visa or Mastercard, which requires a small fee to open the account and charges a fee each time it is used. Netspend recently partnered with Family Dollar and 7-Eleven to sell their cards in their stores.

Netspend was forced to refund more than $13 million in fees after the FTC filed charges claiming that the company withheld funds that caused some consumers severe financial difficulties. 

In October 2018, the company experienced a technical issue that prevented an unknown number of cardholders from accessing their accounts or the ability to withdraw cash. 

Headquarters for Netspend will remain in Austin, Texas.
