Balance Inquiry on Pre-paid Credit Cards

Use the Balance Inquiry function to check for available funds on a pre-paid credit card in a separate transaction (not as part of a partial approval purchase transaction).

IMPORTANT: Balance inquiry transactions are applicable only to pre-paid credit cards. They are not applicable to Interac debit cards, private label cards and credit cards.  

The cardholder can find out the balance on their pre-paid credit card. The balance will print on a receipt that must be given to the card holder.

To perform a balance inquiry, refer to the "Performing Balance Inquiry on Pre-paid Credit Cards" procedure.

To see an example of a balance inquiry receipt, refer to the "Partial Approval Receipts" topic.
