Alpine Bank customers have access to stop-payments & the Visa Account Updater service
Did you know you can place a stop-payment on a debit card transaction? Federal law provides certain protections for automatic payments set up with merchants and other service providers, to pay bills and other recurring payments with the debit card on file connected to your bank account. These protections include your right to stop a company or merchant from taking automatic payments from your account. Additional information, including limitations, may be found in your debit card agreement or by contacting your local Alpine Bank location.
Visa Account Updater (VAU) is a service that participating merchants can use to retrieve cardholder account changes, like new debit or credit card numbers and expiration dates. It’s designed to simplify the payment process for cardholders who have recurring payments set up for expenses like utilities, subscriptions or streaming services.
Participating merchants receive updated information from VAU on a regular basis, including changes in card expiration dates, card numbers and account status. This allows Alpine customers to enjoy uninterrupted service from merchants who rely on automatic payments for recurring charges. Customers may to opt-out of this service at any time by contacting Alpine Bank.
Both services can be beneficial to cardholders in different ways. Stop-payments can help prevent unauthorized charges, while Visa Account Updater allows recurring payments to continue without interruption, even when payment information is changed.
By offering these services with no additional fees, Visa and Alpine Bank provide customers with greater control over their payment transactions and a more seamless payment experience overall.
