MasterCard Benefits

MasterCard Automatic Billing Updater

One of the biggest problems for merchants who process debit or credit cards on a recurring basis is maintaining accurate credit or debit card information on file. In any given year, roughly 50-70% of MasterCard® and VISA® cardholders will change their account information. This places a heavy burden on merchants to reach out to customers and capture the updated information. If consumers are properly informed of the terms and give their full consent to recurring card charges, auto-renewal methods can benefit both the individuals and the businesses involved.

Automatic Billing Updater prevents disruptions due to account changes and extends the life of automatic payment arrangements by helping secure these ongoing revenue-generating relationships while locking in revenue, reducing processing costs, maintaining service continuity, and strengthening cardholder satisfaction.

How it Works:

  • Merchants enroll through their processor
  • Card issuers (Lake Elmo Bank) submit electronic files with updates when a cardholder’s account information changes.
  • Card Issuers are required to send these file updates within two business days and are strongly encouraged to send them daily to ensure that account-on-file merchants have the advantage of the latest authorization data.
  • The merchant’s credit card information is sent to their processor who then processes inquiries against its database and provides responses.
  • Participating merchants are required to update their customer account databases in accordance with Terms of Use.

How cardholders benefit

  • Does not interrupt bill payment
  • Eliminates late fees and service disruption
  • Provides greater convenience

Cardholders typically set up automatic payments using their MasterCard® cards for two reasons:

  • Make payments easier
  • Make payments on time without having to do anything

When Card-on-File is discontinued because of an account change, the cardholder may be unaware until the service stops—and that disruption is usually perceived by the cardholder as a sign of poor customer care. The MasterCard® Automatic Billing Updater is a systemic solution that helps maintain automatic payment transaction volume and boosts customer satisfaction while reducing customer service demand.

MasterCard® and VISA® have enforced these changes and is not controlled by financial institutions issuing credit and debit cards.

It is the cardholder’s responsibility to provide updated card information to the merchant. In order to stop authorized recurring payments, the cardholder must revoke their authorization with the merchant. The cardholder is liable for all authorized recurring payments and must provide proof of revocation in order to dispute a debit card transaction.  Lake Elmo Bank is not responsible for any late or finance fees that may be charged if the MasterCard® Automatic Bill system does not update card information at a participating merchant.  Cardholder cannot opt out of the MasterCard® Automatic Biller Updater program at this time.

MasterCard® offers many benefits that go along with your Lake Elmo Bank debit card. Below is a reference for the types of benefits MasterCard® offers:

  • Global Services
