Debit Card Frequently Asked Questions
When you are ready to make your purchase with your Abri Debit Card simply tell the clerk you wish to pay with VISA. They will then ask you or the card swipe machine will direct you to choose Debit or Credit. If you choose debit you will be required to key in your (PIN) and then you will be given a receipt. If you choose credit, once the transaction is complete, you sign a receipt and get a copy for your records. Then the funds will be automatically withdrawn from your checking account.
By asking this question the merchant is determining how you would like your transaction processed. No matter how you respond, the funds will be automatically withdrawn from your checking account.
When you choose debit, the transaction is processed through the ATM network and you are required to enter your PIN.
