Yes, though again it might take a day or two to show up on the history once collected.
Re other experiences, I topped up by a fiver last week and it went through after a day or so. What happened to me however was a change of plans - I had some Luas trips to do before reaching my 'nominated pickup point' of a DART gate so I topped up with cash at a Luas no problem, travelled on that, and when I next used the DART my online fiver was there waiting for me.
In short, I don't like nominating my collection point as I take Luas / Dart / cycle to work all rather randomly, and a little hard to judge if it takes up to 48 hours to process. I hope that requirement disappears soon. But I do like having fewer prepaid cards in my pocket (was DB/Luas/Dart/Dublin bikes... now down to just Leap/Dublin bikes!
