Debit Mastercard - Worldwide Access

About the Debit Mastercard

Debit Mastercard is a new bank card that allows you to use your own money in situations that would normally require credit card payments, such as online shopping, paying for plane tickets, booking rooms at hotels, paying for rent-a-cars and other similar transactions.

Debit Mastercard allows you:

  • To withdraw money free of charge from any ATM anywhere in the country;
  • To make POS payments free of charge at commercial outlets in Bulgaria;
  • To shop online*;
  • To make PayPass (contactless) payments;
  • To take part in Fibank's YES Loyalty Program;

You can also:

  • Make bank transactions that normally require debit cards such as receiving and making payments, withdrawing money at bank branches, etc.;
  • Monitor the transactions to and from your bank account by signing into the My Fibank electronic system for online account statements and services;
  • Request overdraft of up to 5 times the monthly average credited to your account;
  • Have the Debit Mastercard issued as primary or secondary card.

* To improve your security when shopping online, we recommend that you register your Fibank card for the 3D Card Security service. It works by requiring a 3D password known only to you to be entered along with the standard data used in online payments such as the number and expiration date of your card, the name of the user and the CVV (CVC) Code. It is a simple yet effective measure against misuse.
