- BUSINESS DEPOSIT ACCOUNT AGREEMENT AND DISCLOSURES
Please read this Business Deposit Account Agreement carefully and retain it for future reference. The Business Deposit Account Agreement (the "Agreement") is revised periodically, so it may include changes from earlier versions.
This Agreement outlines the terms applicable to the demand deposit account (“Business Deposit Account”) available from Stride Bank N.A., member FDIC (“Stride”, the “Bank” or “Issuer”) on behalf of Payfare, the program partner responsible for managing the Business Deposit Account (“Payfare”). “We”, “our”, and “us” refer to the Bank, its successors, affiliates, or assignees. “You” and “your” refer to the Business (as defined herein) owner of the Business Deposit Account.
Please note the Business Deposit Account is not being offered by Lyft, Inc. (“LYFT”). LYFT is not responsible for any aspect of the Business Deposit Account, including, without limitation, the terms of this Agreement, your application to open a Business Deposit Account, your use of the Business Deposit Account, the Lyft Direct mobile banking application (the “Lyft Direct App”), or any associated rewards program.
By providing an electronic signature or acceptance on opening, or continuing to hold an account with us, you agree to the most recent version of this Agreement, which is available to you in the Lyft Direct App. You agree to appoint Stride Bank, N.A. as your agent to pool the funds in your Business Deposit Account with funds from the holders of other deposit accounts and to then deposit those funds in one or more FDIC insured banks, and to obtain your funds from the pooled funds account(s) in order to transfer your funds as you may direct.
NOTICE: THIS AGREEMENT REQUIRES ALL DISPUTES TO BE RESOLVED BY WAY OF BINDING ARBITRATION. THE TERMS OF THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE APPEAR AT THE END OF SECTION FIVE (5) OF THIS AGREEMENT.
CELLULAR PHONE CONTACT POLICY
By providing us with a telephone number for a cellular phone or other wireless device, including a number that you later connect to a cellular device, you are expressly consenting to receiving communications-including but not limited to prerecorded or artificial voice message calls, text messages, and calls made by an automatic telephone dialing system-from us, Payfare, LYFT, our affiliates, Payfare or LYFT’s affiliates, our agents, or Payfare or LYFT’s agents at that number. This express consent applies to each such telephone number that you provide to us now or in the future and permits such calls for non-marketing purposes. Calls and messages may incur access fees from your cellular provider.
You may open the Business Deposit Account by applying through the LYFT Driver Application and downloading the Lyft Direct App. Banking functionality is available entirely through the Lyft Direct App. The Business Deposit Account is designed for use by a business, which may be an individual acting as a sole proprietor, a partnership, a limited partnership, a limited liability company, a corporation, or a joint venture. The Business Deposit Account may not be held or maintained for personal, family, or household purposes. We reserve the right to close the Business Deposit Account if we determine it is being used for personal, family, or household purposes. We reserve the right to refuse to process any transaction(s) that we believe may violate the terms of this Agreement.
You are responsible and liable for all activity you have authorized on your Business Deposit Account unless otherwise noted below.
Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays, even if we are open. Any references to “days” found in this Agreement are calendar days unless indicated otherwise.
Business Deposit Account Eligibility
The Business Deposit Account is available to LYFT Drivers (as defined herein) who are citizens or permanent residents of the fifty (50) United States (“U.S.”) and the District of Columbia who are at least 21 years of age with a valid Social Security number, except in New York where the age requirement is 18 years of age. You must agree to accept electronic, rather than paper, statements. This means:
- you must keep us supplied with your valid email address; and
- you must agree to accept electronic delivery of all account communications (such as end-of-year tax forms and electronic statements).
We may use information from third parties to help us determine if we should open your Business Deposit Account.
Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Business Deposit Account.
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each Business who opens a Business Deposit Account. What this means for you: When you open a Business Deposit Account, we will ask for your business name, tax payer identification number and business address; the name, residential address, date of birth, Social Security Number of each signer, and other information so that we can identify you and the business. In the case of a sole proprietor, references to business name or business address refer to personal name and residential address respectively. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents to verify the business’ existence.
The Business Deposit Account
Consists of the online transaction demand deposit account used to make payments and transfers to third parties online or through the use of a LYFT Direct Business MasterCard® Debit Card (the "Business Debit Card") that is automatically issued with the Business Deposit Account.
Account Titling and Ownership
The Business Deposit Account may only be owned and titled in the name of one person who may deposit, transfer, or withdraw funds. The Business Deposit Account cannot be owned or titled as Payable on Death ("POD") or "In Trust For" ("ITF").
Death or Incapacitation
If you are a sole proprietor, you or your appointed party, designee, or appointed individual agree to notify us promptly if you die or become legally incapacitated. We will continue to accept deposits and process transaction instructions into and from your Business Deposit Account until we are: (a) notified of your death or adjudication of incompetency and (b) have a reasonable opportunity to act. You agree that, even if we have knowledge of your death we may pay or process transactions on your Business Deposit Account on or before the date of death for up to ten (10) days after that date unless ordered to stop payment by someone claiming interest in the Business Deposit Account. We may require additional documentation to confirm any claims made on the Business Deposit Account.
Power of Attorney
If you are a sole proprietor, you may appoint another individual as attorney-in-fact for your Business Deposit Account. The account owner and person executing the power of attorney is known as the “Principal.” The person granted the power of attorney for the Principal is known as the “Agent.” You should notify us in advance if you plan to create a power of attorney involving your Business Deposit Account. We generally will accept a Uniform Statutory Form Power of Attorney that complies with state law. We may require the Agent to sign an affidavit stating that the power of attorney presented to us is a true copy and that, to the best of the Agent’s knowledge, the Principal continues to be alive and competent and that the relevant powers of the Agent have not been amended or terminated. The Principal is responsible to provide us with information if an affidavit presented to us is untrue or misleading or if Agent exceeds the authority granted by the Principal in the power of attorney. We may refuse to accept any forms of powers of attorney, however, with or without cause. We may act on the instructions of an attorney-in-fact whether or not the attorney-in-fact relationship is noted in the instruction (e.g., on any check signed by the attorney-in-fact). You can revoke your power of attorney by sending a written notice to us at any time. The power of attorney will continue in force until a) we receive written revocation from the Principal; b) we receive written notification of the Principal’s death; or c) we receive written notification of the death or incapacity of the Agent. We assume no duty to monitor the actions of your attorney-in-fact to ensure that he or she acts for your benefit.
Our Relationship With You
This Agreement does not create a fiduciary, quasi fiduciary or other special relationship between you and us. We owe you a duty of ordinary care. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this agreement.
English Language Controls
Any translation of this Agreement is provided for your convenience. The meaning of the terms, conditions and representations herein are subject to definitions and interpretations in the English language. Any translation provided may not accurately represent the information in the original English.

Please refer to Section 4 labeled, “GENERAL FUNDS AVAILABILITY” for additional information.
Your Business Deposit Account number and bank routing number can be used for preauthorized direct debits ("ACH Debits") from merchants, Internet service or other utility service providers ("Merchants") and for the purpose of initiating direct deposits to your Business Deposit Account. These transfers will be processed under the Operating Rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association ("NACHA") and you agree to comply with the NACHA rules. Detailed information regarding preauthorized transfers is available in Section 2, labeled “FUNDS TRANSFER SERVICES.”
NOTE: The recipient's name on any direct deposit(s) we receive must match the name of the Business Deposit Accountholder. Any direct deposits received in a name other than the name registered to the Business Deposit Account will be returned to the originator.
IMPORTANT: If your Business Deposit Account number changes you must immediately notify the Merchants. You must provide them with the new Business Deposit Account number to ensure that the ACH Debit activity continues uninterrupted.
Problems That Could Occur with Deposits
If funds are deposited or transferred into your Business Deposit Account by mistake or otherwise, we may correct the situation by deducting the amount of the deposit from your Business Deposit Account without prior notice to you. If there are not enough funds in your Business Deposit Account at that time, your Business Deposit Account could become overdrawn. See the “No Overdrafts” and “Right to Set Off” sections below for more information about what could occur if your Business Deposit Account has a negative balance.
You are not permitted to overdraw your Business Deposit Account. If the available balance in your Business Deposit Account is not sufficient to cover any payment or withdrawal you have authorized, we can, in our sole discretion, refuse to process the payment or withdrawal. Even if we’ve paid overdraft items before, we are not required to do it in the future. It’s your responsibility to avoid overdrawing your Business Deposit Account.
This paragraph describes, generally, how we post transactions to accounts. Please note that this process may change from time to time, without prior notice to you. Our order of posting depends on a number of factors, including when a transaction occurs, whether it has already been approved by us or has become final, the order in which it is presented, the amount, system availability, potential risk of loss to the Bank, and the type of transaction in question, among other variables. First, we credit your Business Deposit Account for deposits received before the cutoff time. Then, we process withdrawals / payments we have previously authorized and cannot return unpaid, such as debit card purchases, ATM withdrawals, account transfers, and online bill pay transactions. If we receive more than one of these transactions for payment from your Business Deposit Account, we will generally sort and pay them based on the date and time you conducted the transactions. For a debit card transaction, if a merchant does not seek authorization from the Bank at the time of the transaction, we will use the date the transaction is received for payment from your Account. For some transactions, such as online bill pay transactions, the time may be assigned by our systems and may vary from the time it was conducted. Multiple transactions that have the same time will be sorted and paid from lowest to highest dollar amount. We always reserve the right to post transactions that are payable to us first, and we may post any transaction earlier or later in the process than indicated. As such, if you want to avoid an overdraft or the possibility of a rejected transaction, you should take steps to ensure that your Account has sufficient funds to cover each of your transactions and our fees.
We do not guarantee approval of transactions and reserve the right to deny transactions for any reason, such as account default, suspected fraudulent or unlawful activity, internet gaming, or any indication of increased risk related to the transaction. We may limit the number of authorizations we allow during a period of time. We reserve the right to adjust your Business Deposit Account without notice to you in the event of an error or suspected fraudulent or unlawful activity, including reversing a transaction.
If your Business Deposit Account balance becomes negative for any reason, you must make a deposit immediately to cover the negative balance. We may report you to consumer reporting agencies, close your account, or both. This could affect your ability to open accounts with us or other banks in the future. If your Business Deposit Account has a negative balance and you have another account with us, we reserve the right to exercise our right to set off. See the “Right to Set Off” section below for details. You agree we may use subsequent deposits and other credits to your Account to recover any negative balance without notice to you. Our payment or allowance of transactions that create negative balances does not obligate us to continue that practice at a later time. If your Business Deposit Account has a zero or negative balance, we may, at our option, cancel your Business Deposit Account without notice. You agree to pay all costs and expenses we incur in collecting any overdraft. We may still pursue collection of the amount you owe (including suing you) after it is charged off.
Right to Set Off
If your Business Deposit Account balance becomes negative, we can use the funds in any of your accounts to repay the amount owed on the negative balance Business Deposit Account. This is known as setoff. This means, we have the right to set-off any liability, direct or contingent, past, present or future that you owe against any account you have with us. Further, you grant us a lien on and security interest in the funds on deposit in each of your account(s) as security for all of your liabilities and obligations to us, now or in the future. We are not required to give you any prior notice to exercise our right of setoff.
Legal Processes Affecting Accounts
If legal action such as a garnishment, levy or other state of federal legal process (“Legal Process”) is brought against your Business Deposit Account, we may refuse to permit (or may limit) withdrawals or transfers from your Business Deposit Account until the Legal Process is satisfied or dismissed. Regardless of the terms of such garnishment, levy or other state or federal process, we have first claim to any and all funds in your Business Deposit Account. We will not contest on your behalf any such Legal Process and may take action to comply with such Legal Process as we determine to be appropriate in the circumstances without liability to you, even if any funds we may be required to pay out leaves insufficient funds to pay a transaction that you have authorized. Payment is made after satisfying any fees, charges or other debts owed to us. You agree that we may honor legal process that is served personally, by mail, email or facsimile transmission at any of our offices (including locations other than where the funds, records or property sought is held), even if the law requires personal delivery at the office where your Account or records are maintained. You agree that you are responsible for any expenses, including legal expenses and fees we incur due to any Legal Process on your Business Deposit Account. We may charge these expenses to your Business Deposit Account. You will indemnify us for any losses if we do this.
Account Suspensions and Closures
We may suspend or close your Business Deposit Account for any reason with or without notice. We may suspend or cancel a Business Deposit Account if we, at any time, believe you are using the Business Deposit Account or associated Business Debit Card for fraudulent or illegal purposes, or you otherwise presents an undue risk or burden to us, as determined by us, in our sole discretion. We may also close your Business Deposit Account if we, in our sole judgment, determine your use of the Business Deposit Account or associated Business Debit Card conflicts with any federal, state or local law, rule or regulation, including federal asset control and sanction rules and anti-money-laundering rules, or with our policies adopted to assure that we comply with those laws, rules or regulations. We may close your Business Deposit Account pursuant to a court order or other legal request. Your Business Deposit Account may also be closed or suspended for non-fraudulent actions which nonetheless violate the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.
Amendment and Cancellation
We may amend or change the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time by posting the amended Agreement on the Lyft Direct Mobile App, and any such amendment shall be effective upon such posting to that mobile app. The current Agreement is available at Lyft Direct Mobile App. You will be notified of any change in the manner provided by applicable law prior to the effective date of the change. However, if the change is made for security purposes, we can implement such change without prior notice. We may cancel or suspend your Business Deposit Account, and / or any of its associated services or this Agreement at any time.
You may cancel this Agreement at any time by contacting Lyft Direct Help through the Lyft Direct App to close your Business Deposit Account. Your termination of this Agreement will not affect any of our rights or your obligations arising under this Agreement prior to termination.
If your Business Deposit Account is cancelled, closed or terminated for any reason, you may request the unused balance be returned to you via electronic transfer or by check sent to the mailing address we have in our records. For security purposes, you may be required to supply identification and address verification documentation prior to issuing a refund check. Allow fourteen (14) days for processing and mailing of the refund check. In the event the program is cancelled, closed, or terminated, we will send you prior notice, in accordance with applicable law. Specific information and instructions, including how to receive any remaining Business Deposit Account balance, will be in the notice. We reserve the right to refuse to return any unused balance amount less than $3.00.
Account Dormancy and Escheatment
An account that is inactive for a period of time may be considered dormant and is subject to escheatment. We may transfer (escheat) your property to the appropriate state if no activity occurs in the Business Deposit Account or you fail to communicate with us regarding your Business Deposit Account within the time period specified by state law. We may consider an Account dormant even if you maintain another active account with us. Each state has varying laws as to when an account is subject to escheatment and we may be required to send the balance in your Business Deposit Account to the state of your last known address. If your Business Deposit Account becomes escheatable, account statements will no longer be available; your Business Deposit Account will be closed. We will make all reasonable efforts to contact you before transferring the remaining balance of your Business Deposit Account to the applicable state. If funds are transferred to the state, you may file a claim with the state to recover the funds.
Electronic statements are available to view and print from the Lyft Direct App. Business Deposit Account statements are considered to be correct. Carefully review your statements each statement period and promptly notify us of any errors. If you do not, the information reflected in the statement shall be deemed conclusively correct, and you agree we shall have no liability in any way relating to such errors and you will not thereafter make any claim against us related to a transaction or error reflected in such statement.

If we detect an error on one or more occasions, we will not be obligated to detect errors in any future payment order. We will rely on the beneficiary account number and beneficiary bank identification number (e.g. IBAN, RTN, or SWIFT BIC) you provide with an instruction or order. You could lose the funds if you provide incomplete or inaccurate information.

Information contained in this section is provided to assist you in understanding our Funds Availability Policy. All deposits into accounts opened through the Bank are processed at a Bank processing facility. We make funds available according to the type of deposit and when the funds are applied or credited to your Business Deposit Account. Some types of deposits may not be available for immediate use. When we delay the availability of funds or place a hold on a deposit made to your Business Deposit Account, you may not withdraw those funds, and we will not use them to pay any debits, such as ACH transfers or payments, bill pay transactions or transactions using your Card during the hold period. We have the right to refuse any deposit.
If final payment is not received on any item you have deposited into your Business Deposit Account, or if any direct deposit, ACH transfer credit is returned to us for any reason, you agree to pay us the amount of the returned item.

Any deposits received after that time will be processed the following business day.

ACH Credits received from an external bank account will be applied to the Business Deposit Account when we have verified the external account and received payment on collected funds.

III. THE LYFT DIRECT BUSINESS MASTERCARD® DEBIT CARDHOLDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern the use of the LYFT Direct Business Mastercard® Debit Card (“Business Debit Card’) and adds information to our Business Deposit Account Agreement. These Terms are between you, and Stride Bank N.A., member FDIC (“Stride”, the “Bank” or “Issuer”) on behalf of Payfare, the program partner responsible for managing the Business Debit Card program (“Payfare”). "We”, “our”, and “us” refer to the Bank, its successors, affiliates, or assignees. “You” and “your” refer to the person or persons who have received the Business Debit Card and are authorized to use the Business Deposit Account or the Business Debit Card. “Account” refers to the Business Deposit Account accessible using your Business Debit Card. These Terms apply to you in addition to other applicable agreements between you and us. If these Terms differ from the agreements listed above, the information in these Terms will control.
The expiration date of the Business Debit Card is identified on the front of your Debit Card. The Business Debit Card will remain the property of the Issuer and must be surrendered or destroyed upon demand. The Business Debit Card is nontransferable, and it may be canceled, repossessed, or revoked at any time without prior notice subject to applicable law. You acknowledge and agree that the funds accessible through use of the Business Debit Card is limited to the available funds in your Account. We may refuse to process any transaction that we believe may violate these Terms. If your Business Debit Card is cancelled, you remain responsible for any Business Debit Card transactions made prior to the cancellation of the Business Debit Card.
Write down your Business Debit Card number on a separate piece of paper in case your Business Debit Card is lost, stolen, or destroyed.
Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays, even if we are open. Any references to “days” found in this Agreement are calendar days unless indicated otherwise.
NOTICE: THESE TERMS REQUIRE ALL DISPUTES TO BE RESOLVED BY WAY OF BINDING ARBITRATION. THE TERMS OF THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE APPEAR AT THE IN SECTION 5 OF THE BUSINESS DEPOSIT ACCOUNT AGREEMENT.
Business Use. The Business Debit Card is designed for use by a business, which may be an individual acting as a sole proprietor, a partnership, a limited partnership, a limited liability company, a corporation, or a joint venture. The Business Debit Card may not be held or maintained for personal, family, or household purposes. We reserve the right to cancel the Business Debit Card if we determine it is being used for personal, family, or household purposes.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW CARD ACCOUNT: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a card account. What this means for you: When you open a business card account, we will ask for your business name, taxpayer identification number and business address; the name, residential address, date of birth, Social Security Number of each signer, and other information so that we can identify you and the business. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents to verify the business’ existence.
Activate the Business Debit Card. You must activate the Business Debit Card before it can be used. You may activate it through the Lyft Direct App.
Your Representations and Warranties. By activating the Business Debit Card or by retaining, using or authorizing the use of the Business Debit Card provided with the Account, you represent and warrant to us that:
- you are at least 21 years of age, except if you are resident of New York where the age requirement is 18 years of age;
- you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the fifty (50) states of the United States (“U.S.”) or the District of Columbia;
- you are a LYFT Driver, which means you have had your application to drive approved by Lyft, Inc. (“LYFT Driver”);
- you have provided us with a verifiable U.S. street address (not a P.O. Box);
- the personal information that you provide to us in connection with the Account is true, correct and complete; and
Personal Identification Number (“PIN”). You will not receive a PIN with the Business Debit Card. However, you will be prompted to select a PIN when you activate it. See the activation instructions in the “Activate the Business Debit Card” section. Do not write or keep your PIN with your Business Debit Card. Never share your PIN with anyone. When entering your PIN, be sure it cannot be observed by others and do not enter your PIN into any terminal that appears to be modified or suspicious. If you believe that anyone has gained unauthorized access to your PIN, change your PIN and advise us immediately.
Using your Business Debit Card. Each time you use the Business Debit Card, you authorize us to reduce the value available in the Account by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount in the Account through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a completed transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available in the Account, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. See these provisions in Section C of the Business Deposit Account Agreement for additional details if your Account balance becomes negative: “6. No Overdrafts and “7. Right to Set Off.”
Purchases. Subject to the limitations set forth in these Terms, once your Business Debit Card has been successfully activated and your identity verified, you may use your Business Debit Card to purchase or lease goods or services everywhere MasterCard® debit, STAR®, or Maestro® Cards are accepted as long as you do not exceed the available balance of your Account.
ATM Withdrawals and Limits. With your PIN, you may use the Business Debit Card to obtain cash from your Account at any Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) or any Point-of-Sale (“POS”) device, as permissible by a merchant, that bears the Mastercard, STAR, or Maestro Acceptance Marks. All ATM transactions are treated as cash withdrawal transactions. ATM cash withdrawals, funds withdrawn at a POS, and purchases are all subject to the maximum amounts that can be spent on the Business Debit Card per day. These are the itemized cash access and spending limits for your Account:
Transaction Type Frequency and/or Dollar Limits* ATM Withdrawal 5 withdrawals up to $1,000 per day 150 withdrawals up to $5,000 per month Retail Card Purchases (Signature and PIN) $10,000 per day $25,000 per month E-commerce Purchases 10 purchases up to $5,000 per day 120 purchases up to $15,000 per month
* Daily limits refer to 24-hour rolling timeframes (for example, Tuesday 2:00pm – Wednesday 2:00pm). ATM and POS device owner-operators, merchants and participating banks may impose their own fees and lower limits on cash withdrawals.
Split Tender Transactions. Some merchants do not allow customers to conduct split transactions where the Business Debit Card is used as partial payment for goods and services and the remainder of the balance is paid with another form of legal tender. If you wish to conduct a split transaction and it is permitted by the merchant, you must tell the merchant to charge only the exact amount of funds available in the Account to the Business Debit Card. You must then arrange to pay the difference using another payment method. Some merchants may require payment for the remaining balance in cash. If you fail to inform the merchant that you would like to complete a split transaction prior to swiping the Business Debit Card, the Business Debit Card is likely to be declined.
Authorization Holds. When you use your Business Debit Card to purchase goods or services or to obtain cash from a merchant, the merchant may attempt to obtain preauthorization from us for the transaction. If the merchant makes such a request, we place a hold on your Account balance for the amount of the preauthorization request (which may vary in some cases from the amount of the actual purchase, depending on the merchant). This hold may affect the availability of funds in your Account balance. If you authorize a transaction and then fail to make a purchase of that item as planned, the approval may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to thirty (30) days. All transactions relating to car rentals may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to thirty (30) days.
If you use your Business Debit Card at an automated fuel dispenser (“Pay at the pump”), the merchant may preauthorize the transaction amount up to $75.00 or more. If your Business Debit Card is declined, even though you have sufficient funds available, use your Business Debit Card to pay for your purchase inside with the cashier. This hold will be released once merchant submits the transaction for settlement. If you use your Business Debit Card at a restaurant, a hotel, for a car rental purchase, or for similar purchases, the merchant may preauthorize the transaction amount for the purchase amount plus up to 20% or more to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover tips or incidental expenses that may be incurred. Any preauthorization amount will place a “hold” on your available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. It may take up to ten (10) days for the hold to be removed. During the hold period, you will not have access to the preauthorized amount.
We will not be responsible if any transactions are not completed because of the hold. If the preauthorization request varies from the amount of the actual transaction, we will debit the actual transaction amount from your Account balance, even if this results in your Account balance becoming negative. You remain responsible for any negative balances in your Account.
You do not have the right to stop payment on any purchase or payment transaction originated by use of your Business Debit Card.
Card not Present Transactions. If you use your 16-digit Business Debit Card number without presenting your Debit Card in person (such as for a mail order, telephone, or internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Business Debit Card itself. For security reasons, we may limit the amount or number of transactions you can make on your Business Debit Card in these scenarios. You may not use your Business Debit Card for illegal online gambling or any other illegal transaction.
Foreign Transactions. If you obtain funds or make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which your Business Debit Card was issued, the amount deducted from your Account balance will be converted by Mastercard International Incorporated into an amount in the currency of your Account. The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by Mastercard International Incorporated from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate Mastercard International Incorporated itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. The conversion rate may be different from the rate in effect on the date of your transaction and the date it is posted to your account.
We will impose a three percent (3%) fee for each transaction (U.S. or foreign currency) that you conduct at merchants (including foreign websites) outside the United States (fee even if they are completed in U.S. currency) or in a foreign currency; additionally, there may also be third-party fees.
Authorized Users. You are responsible for all authorized transactions initiated and fees incurred by use of the Business Debit Card or Account. If you permit another person to have access to your Business Debit Card, Business Debit Card number(s), Account number(s) or PIN, we will treat this as if you have authorized such use and you will be liable for all transactions and fees incurred by those persons.
Secondary Cardholder. You may not request an additional Card for another person.
Business Debit Card Fees. All fee amounts will be withdrawn from your Account and will be assessed as long as there is a remaining balance in your Account, except where prohibited by law. Anytime your remaining balance is less than the fee amount being assessed, the balance of your Account will be applied to the fee amount resulting in a negative balance in your Account.
Fee Amount Details Cash Deposits through the MasterCard rePower® Network No fee charged by the Bank. Merchants or retailers may charge additional fees. Retailers or merchants may charge fees of up to $4.95 when reloading your card at rePower reload agents. Locations may be found at www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/get-support/reload-a-prepaid-card.html Cash Withdrawal Fee – In Network ATM No-fee or $2.50 “low-fee” charged by the Bank "In-network” refers to Allpoint ATMs. No-fee and low fee ATMs can be found using the locator in the Lyft Direct App Cash Withdrawal Fee – Out of Network ATM, includes international ATMs * $2.50 per transaction charged by the Bank. ATM owners may charge additional fees. "Out-of-Network” refers to all non-Allpoint ATMs Foreign Transactions Fee 3% of the transaction amount is charged by the Bank. In addition to a charge of 3% of the transaction amount by the Bank, you may also be charged additional fees by any retailers or financial institutions involved in your transaction. Card Replacement Fee 1st at no charge, then $5.00 per replacement Card ordered.
*If you use an ATM for any transaction outside of the Allpoint network, you may be charged an additional fee by the ATM owner even if you do not complete a withdrawal. This ATM fee is a third-party fee amount assessed by the individual ATM operator only and is not assessed by the Bank. This ATM fee amount will be charged to your Account.
Using your Business Debit Card through a Mobile Device. A mobile device means a smartphone, tablet, or any other hand-held or wearable communication device that allows you to electronically store or electronically present your Business Debit Card or Business Debit Card Number and use that to make debit card transactions, including making purchases at participating merchants and accessing ATMs that display the contactless symbol.
When you use your Business Debit Card with your mobile device for transactions:
- Mobile carriers may charge you message and data rates, or other fees.
- Your Business Debit Card information is sent across wireless and computer networks.
- Information about your mobile device may be transmitted to us.

- Many ATMs require the physical card to initiate the transaction.

- You can get a receipt at the time you make a transaction using your Business Debit Card at an ATM or at a point of sale.

Returns and Refunds. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE MERCHANT’S RETURN POLICIES PRIOR TO COMPLETING THE TRANSACTION. If you have a problem with a purchase that you made with your Business Debit Card, or if you have a dispute with the merchant, you must handle it directly with the merchant. If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with your Business Debit Card, you agree to accept credits to your Business Debit Card for refunds and agree to the refund policy of the merchant. Neither the Issuer, Lyft Inc., nor Payfare is responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspects of the goods or services that you purchase from others with the Business Debit Card.
