Processing transactions include credits and debits that have not yet posted to your account. They may also include holds applied to certain transactions or your balance. A transaction made with your ATM or debit card using a PIN is typically processed and posted to your account on the same day of the transaction or the next business day after the transaction is made. A transaction made with your debit card but without your PIN may take several business days to post to your account.
When we approve a request to authorize your debit card transaction, we may reduce the available balance in your account by the amount listed in the request by the merchant. Your remaining available balance must be sufficient to cover checks and other debits that post to your account or you may incur charges such as overdraft or returned item fees. When the debit card transaction posts to your account, or after 3 business days, we add this amount back to your available balance. The amount is not applied to any specific transaction or item. Some debit card transactions may not show as pending transactions and may not affect your available balance until they post.
In some cases the amount of the processing transaction may not match the actual amount of the transaction. This is because some merchants request us to authorize a nominal amount such as $1 or the amount that they estimate you will spend, which could be higher or lower than the actual amount of the transaction. When the transaction posts, your account is charged the amount of the transaction presented by the merchant.
