ATM Alert when withdrawing cash


#1

Cannot understand why I receive the message"your card issuer may charge for this withdrawal" would you like to proceed. I only expect that with credit cards or prepaid cards, not from a legit bank card. I know starling do not so continued but why is this message is shown in the first place.


#2

I’m guessing it’s because Starling Cards are not part of the Link network, or the ATM can’t determine if it’s a credit or debit card. Similar to using a UK card in the US.


#3

Does Starling have any plans to join the Link network ?


#4

It’s because the BIN numbers in the card were previously used for a danish bank I believe which were prepaid. Which then means the banks atms have not been updated. When I used Metro bank to withdraw cash the other day is didn’t get this so would assume this has been updated. Starling aren’t part of the link network.


#5

I hope so.


#6

Discussed in a thread I started earlier in the year - Cash Advance fee warning message at Cashpoints

Basically machines are required to display a warning for all banks who are not part of LINK network - hence nothing can be done as long as Starling is not a part of LINK.
