Low Cash Mode is only available on the Spend account of your Virtual Wallet product.
Tools to Help You Manage Your Money
Take control of your account when your balance is low. Low Cash Mode delivers real-time intelligent alerts that let you know when your balance is low, allows you to choose whether certain transactions should be paid or returned, and gives you at least 24 hours to bring your account out of the negative so you can avoid overdraft fees.
- Extra Time – you’ll have at least 24 hours to bring your available account balance to at least $0 before you are charged overdraft fees.
- Payment Control – you can choose to pay or return certain individual checks, and payments made using your routing and checking account numbers (ACH transactions), when your balance is negative.
- Intelligent Alerts – a suite of alerts so you know when to and how long you have to take action.
