Pin-based debit transactions are transactions where consumer is required to enter his or her four-digit personal identification number or PIN, much like an Automated Teller Transaction ATM, except at the point of sale. Pin-based debit transactions allow merchants to accept bank-issued ATM cards as well; these are cards that are not branded with the VISA® or MasterCard® logos. Pin-based transactions function on-line as a direct debit authorization and capture from either a personal or business checking or savings account. Pin-based transactions carry a flat transaction fee verses that of a credit card transaction which carries a percentage rate and transaction fee. Merchants who accept pin-based debit, accept the most secure form of payment with often times the lowest possible cost of any card-based sale. Pin-based transactions also allow the merchant to offer cash back to the consumer if they so choose. WPS supports all major debit networks allowing merchants to take advantage of this more secure and lower cost transaction. The following is a list of most debit networks supported by WPS: Shazam® • InterLink® • Star® • Explore® • Maestro® • PulsePay® • NYCE® • MAC® • TYME® • BankMate® • AFFN® • Honor® • Cash Station®
