What is an ACH debit transaction?
The Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network is a highly reliable and efficient nationwide batch-oriented electronic funds transfer system governed by the NACHA Operating Rules that provide for the interbank clearing of electronic payments for participating depository financial institutions. The Federal Reserve and Electronic Payments Network act as ACH Operators, central clearing facilities through which financial institutions transmit or receive ACH entries.
Examples of ACH payments include:
- Direct deposit of payroll, tax refunds, Social Security and other government benefits
- Direct payment of consumer bills such as mortgages, loans, utility bills and insurance premiums
- Business-to-business payments
- E-commerce payments and Federal, state, and local tax payments
I saw a small deposit of a few cents in my bank account. What is this?
ZipLine validates your enrolled bank account information to ensure that we have the correct account number. We do so by submitting a deposit to your bank account. The “challenge deposit” is a test to confirm the validity of the account. The enrolled card is not activated until this deposit verification process is completed.
In some cases, a small withdrawal is also made as part of the validation process. In that case, you will need to know both values to successfully complete the account validation process. Do I get charged by my bank for an ACH transaction? Most banks do not charge for ACH transactions. This is the same method that is currently used for paying mortgage payments, car payments and any authorized debits from your bank account. It is possible that some banks may charge a monthly fee for such services so please check with your bank for details. Charges will apply from your bank and from ZipLine if your transaction is returned as unpaid (NSF, Account Closed/Frozen, etc.). Our return fee will be the maximum amount permissible by state law. This fee is separate from any fees that your bank may impose for such returns. We recommend that you have Overdraft Protection on the account used for your payment card transactions.
If I conduct a transaction and I do not have sufficient funds in my account, what will happen?
First, you should not conduct a transaction if you are aware that you do not have sufficient funds to cover the face amount of the transaction. If you do, your bank will return the transaction and your card will be deactivated until you make good on your purchase. Returned transactions also result in a “Return Fee” permissible by state laws. ZipLine, or assigned agents, will try to electronically collect the face amount of the transaction and the associated Return Fee on two attempts. In the event that the company cannot collect through normal electronic means, your account will be flagged and referred to a collection service and your membership may be cancelled. We recommend that you have Overdraft Protection on the account used for your payment card transactions to avoid additional return fees. By having Overdraft Protection with your bank, you will avoid our fees for returned payment card transactions.

SmartPay Rewards gives SmartPay mobile app users a little something extra for using SmartPay Check-Link.
Who can use the SmartPay rewards program?

Once I tap the redeem coupon button, how long do I have?
Once you tap the "redeem coupon" button and confirm use, you have 15 minutes to use the coupon before it disappears from the screen.
I'm having trouble getting the barcode to scan on my phone when redeeming coupons. What can I do?
Turning the screen brightness up on your phone and tilting it away from bright lights when being scanned will usually solve the problem. On the smart phone apps you can use the brightness up/down button, located on the top right, this will allow you to brighten your display without exiting SmartPay. The cashier can also enter the coupon number manually off of your phone if it still will not scan.
How do I know how many gallons I need to pump to earn my next reward?
Every time you pump gas using the SmartPay Check-Link app, you can track your progress toward your next reward. Your progress will be displayed on a meter showing how many gallons remain until your next reward! The gallons remaining until the next reward is rounded up to the next whole gallon. For example, 6.2 gallons remaining will be displayed as 7 but you will earn your reward at 6.2 gallons.
Will gas gallons purchase from additional phones and cards linked to my account count toward my rewards?
All the gas purchased with phones or cards linked to your account will count toward your rewards. All phones linked to the account will receive the reward on their home screen. Once a coupon is redeemed, it will disappear from all the phones that use the same account.
What if I don't get my reward within 2 hours after I reach the purchase requirement?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you didn't receive your My Rewards coupon. We will add a coupon to your account if it was supposed to be issued.
Am I eligible to participate in the program if I have a SmartPay Business account?
No. SmartPay Business account users are not eligible to participate in the program.
What if I don't want to earn or receive rewards?
You can email email@example.com and request to opt out of receiving coupons. You will stop earning coupons within 72 hours.
Is SmartPay secure?
