What is a debit card?
A debit card is a card issued by a bank and is used to make in-person and online purchases. It’s linked to your checking account and withdraws money directly.
Every debit card comes with security and privacy features, including a unique ID number, security code, expiration date, magnetic strip, and often an embedded chip. Some debit cards also have a four-digit pin number that can be used when making purchases for added protection.
What is the difference between a debit card & a prepaid card?
The difference between a prepaid card and a debit card can be confusing. Prepaid cards let you spend the money that has been preloaded onto the card, while debit cards draw funds from a linked bank account. Both prepaid cards and debit cards may have limitations and often come with fees. Chime offers a full-featured deposit account and debit card. Your account can receive direct deposits and it supports pre-authorized withdrawals and interbank transfers through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network. Chime accounts are insured up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount of $250,000 through our partner banks, The Bancorp Bank and Stride Bank, N.A., Members FDIC.
What is a chip card?
Chip cards come with an embedded metal microchip that encrypts customer information by using a one-time code during every purchase to complete the transaction.
Can you use a debit card for online purchases?
Typically debit cards can be used for online purchases with any merchant that accepts the network name on your card. When you make a purchase online with your debit card, you’ll need to provide the 16-digit card number that’s located on the front or back of your card, the expiration date, and your billing address. You’ll likely also be asked for a CCD, CVV or ‘security code,’ which is a three or four-digit number found on the back of the card.
