6. PIN DEBIT CARD PROCESSING RATES/FEES. These transactions occur when a card is accepted for payment, which is linked to a checking or savings account at a financial institution (e.g. a bank) and the transaction is authorized by a cardholder solely by entering a personal identification number ("PIN"). "Regulated" and "Unregulated" PIN debit transactions are treated the same. These transactions will incur a per PIN debit transaction Fee (which will be shown on your billing statement as an "Authorization Fee") plus a network fee that is based on the debit network (e.g. STAR, Interlink, Maestro) over which the transaction is processed. Network fees may change from time-to-time. A list of some of the most common network fees is located here. You should be aware that the PIN debit networks change their rates regularly and therefore our PIN debit network fee schedule is subject to change without notice. Fees also vary by PIN debit network (for example, STAR will charge different fees than Interlink). The specific PIN debit network used to process your transaction will depend upon, among other things, the availability of the specific PIN debit network at the time of the transaction, whether a particular PIN debit card is enabled for a particular network and the routing requirements established by the PIN debit networks and the card issuers. We may, at our sole discretion, utilize any PIN debit network available to us for a given transaction. You should refer to your monthly statement to find out more about your current PIN debit network fee and updates. PCI compliance fees, additional subscription fees, set-up and other fees may be charged for your use PIN debit card processing services. All PIN debit card-processing fees are subject to change without notice.
