I made a purchase with my Visa® Debit Card yesterday. Why hasn't the transaction cleared my account yet?
The delay in posting Visa® Debit Card transactions depends upon how often the merchant processes their credit card transactions. People First has no control over how quickly these items post. A hold is placed on your account for the amount of the purchase when the merchant swipes your card and the transaction itself will usually post within 3-5 days depending on when the merchant processes it. Once it posts you will be able to see the description of the purchase on PC Access or on your statement.
Total Balance is the amount currently in the account. Available balance is the balance less all holds. Holds can include Visa® Debit Card transactions, checks that are pending, and some deposited items.
