  • Why can’t I link my credit card for in-store purchases?

    When you enroll a card for in-store purchases we send the card number directly from your phone to the card network (Visa, MasterCard, Amex) and they enroll it. They then notify us that your card was enrolled (they don’t send us the card number itself).

    When you attempt to add a card, it’s possible that the card network will reject it, and the messaging returned as to why can be somewhat vague for security purposes. Here are some reasons that may result in your card being rejected:

    Your card is already enrolled. This often happens when two people share a card. It also often happens when you already have an account (for example, you signed up a month or two ago and then signed up again accidentally). If you suspect you may have two accounts, reach out to our support team so we can assist you.

    Your card has expired. If your enrolled card has expired and you try to enroll a new card with the same card number, your new card will be rejected. Once you remove your expired card from your account, you will be able to enroll your new card.

    Your card is not supported. We do not currently accept Discover cards or Apple Cards. Some Visa, MasterCard, and Amex cards may be rejected if they are pre-paid, corporate, or issued outside the US. This isn’t up to us; it’s the policies of the card networks. If you use a card that you are unable to enroll to your account, please submit your receipts through the app and we’ll make sure to credit your account.

    As always, feel free to contact our support team for assistance.

  • How do I add or delete cards for in-store purchase?

    To add a new card or to delete your linked cards, go into the menu in the upper left corner of the screen, and find the ‘Registered Cards’ section.

    Click on ‘Edit’ in the upper right corner and from here you will be able to delete your linked cards.

    Click on ‘Add a new card’ at the bottom of the screen to add your card. You can either scan your card for quick linking or you can manually type in your card number.

  • Do you store my credit card information?

    No. We neither store nor see your credit card information. When you link your card for in-store transactions, your card number is encrypted and sent directly from your phone to Visa, MasterCard, or AmEx. They mark your card as enrolled and send us a notification when you use it to make a purchase at a Velvet Taco location.

    When you make a digital purchase, your card information is stored in a payment vault for re-use on future orders. It is stored in a manner – tokenized and encrypted – that is unreadable to Thanx – we do not see or know your card number. When you use that card to make purchases, your card is sent securely from that vault to Velvet Taco’s ordering platform for processing.

  • Do you share my personal information?

    No. We don’t share your personal information (your name, your email address) with anyone.

  • How do I change my email/password?

    The app uses a passwordless log-in experience, so you do not have a password to log in. To change your email address, click the menu button in the top-left corner of the main screen and then click ‘Account’. On your account page, you will be able to edit your email address.
