Why does my EIP Card say "pending transaction"?

Purchases made at a point-of-sale terminal, withdrawals from an automated teller machine, money transfers, etc.) that have not yet been completed are known as Pending Transactions. (Purchases made with your Card that have not yet posted to your Account) At the end of each business day, merchants typically settle any outstanding transactions; however, settlement policies can vary widely. While a payment is being processed, you cannot spend the money.

If I try to use my EIP Card for a purchase that exceeds my available balance, what will happen?

A transaction may be declined or partially authorized if there is insufficient funds in your Available Account Balance to cover it. There is insufficient funds in the Card account to cover this purchase. Please try again with a different payment method, or enter an amount for this transaction that is greater than or equal to the Card account balance.

If my EIP Card is denied, what should I do?

Before making a purchase, double check that you have enough funds in your account and that your Card has not expired. You can get help using your Card if you have enough money on it and the number on the back is still active.

Can I pick my own personal identification number?

In this case, the answer is yes, and you may use any four-digit number you like. Keep in mind that your PIN protects your Account and the funds within it. Your personal identification number (PIN) should never be shared with anyone, not even those you consider to be close friends or family. As an added precaution, your Account will be more secure if your PIN is not based on any identifying information.

The question of why my funds are being held is a common one.

Your account will be updated once the transaction has been processed and the funds have been transferred. It could take up to 31 days for your car rental pre-authorization funds to be refunded to your card.
