Supplementary notes

Cards issued by resident payment service providers (PSPs).

The source added the following information "A card enabling cardholders to have their purchases directly and immediately charged to their accounts, whether held with the card issuer or not. A card with a debit function may be linked to an account offering overdraft facilities as an additional feature. The number of cards with a debit function refers to the total number of cards in circulation and not to the number of accounts to which the cards are linked. The distinguishing feature of a card with a debit function, in contrast to a card with a credit function or a delayed debit function, is the contractual agreement to charge purchases directly to funds on the cardholder’s current account."
