Notice Regarding Your Visa Debit Card
Your VISA® debit card (“Card”) may be used to conduct transactions on the VISA® network (“VISA®
Transactions”) and on the NYCE® network (“PIN Debit Network Transactions”).
When your Card and its PIN are used together in a transaction, the transaction will be a PIN
Debit Network Transaction. We have also authorized use of the Card without using a PIN.
When your Card is used without a PIN, the transaction may be a PIN Debit Network Transaction
or it may be a VISA® Transaction.
When your Card is used without its PIN, whether the transaction is a VISA® Transaction or a PIN
Debit Network Transaction is determined based on choices made during the transaction or the
choices the merchant makes in processing the transaction.
For example, a Card transaction will be a VISA® Transaction if a receipt is signed. Likewise, if the
merchant provides a choice as to whether a transaction is a “credit” transaction or a “debit”
transaction, and “credit” is selected and no PIN is provided, the transaction is a VISA®
Transaction. If a merchant processes Card transactions without obtaining a PIN and does not
provide a choice as to whether to process the transaction as a credit or debit transaction or any
other options regarding the network to be used for processing the transaction, the transaction
may be processed as a VISA® Transaction or as a PIN Debit Network Transaction depending upon
the merchant and the merchant’s choices.
If a transaction is a PIN Debit Network Transaction and is not a VISA® Transaction, the provisions
in the Agreement and Disclosure for Electronic Funds Transfers and Business Debit Card
Agreement addressing VISA® Transactions will not apply to the transaction.
A 1% (100 basis points) fee will be assessed for each International transaction. This fee may be applied whether or not there is a currency conversion.
This fee will be based on a rate selected by VISA/PLUS from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate VISA/PLUS itself receives, or the government mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date.
A .20% (twenty basis points) Currency Conversion Fee will be assessed on International transactions where Cirrus, MasterCard or Maestro has performed a currency conversion function.
This fee will be based on either a government mandated exchange rate, or a wholesale exchange rate selected by Cirrus, MasterCard, or Maestro and the rate used will be the applicable rate on the day the transaction was processed, which may differ from the date of the transaction or when it posted to the cardholder’s account.
A .90% (90 basis points) Cross Border Fee will be assessed on all International transactions whether or not a currency conversion function was performed by Cirrus, MasterCard, or Maestro.
