Credit card fees and interest rates

Revolving interest

Depending on the cardholder's transactions and payment situation, as well as the cardholder's credit at all banks, the Bank sets different levels of credit risk based on the rating assessed by the credit rating system, while considering funds and operating costs (including operating profits). The applicable revolving credit interest rate is determined for the cardholder on this basis, and is set based on the system rating every three months.

  • The Bank's credit card interest rate is divided into 10 levels, the highest is 15%, as shown below:
    • Card type: General Card
    • Interest rate levels: 10 levels
    • Revolving credit interest rates for each level: 5.88%, 7.88%, 8.88%, 9.88%, 10.88%, 11.88%, 12.88%, 13.88%, 14.88%, 15%

※ If there are special situations, adjusted based on the situation of the individual case.

  • Revolving interest calculation method
    Revolving interest = Interest amount (including amount spent, cash advance) × number of days counted (installment payments start from the day after the payment due date, and other items start from the the posting date on your billing statement) × credit card interest rate, example:
    • Your settlement date is the 3rd of each month, you spent ¥50,000 on April 19, for which the Bank made an advance payment on May 1 (the posting date on your billing statement), and spent NT$5,000 on April 20, for which the Bank made an advance payment on May 2 (the posting date on your billing statement).
    • The payment due date on the statement is May 18.
    • If you paid ¥20,000 and NT$2,000 before May 18, then your revolving interest in June will be:
      • JPY revolving interest: (¥50,000 - ¥20,000) × (33 days from 5/1 to 6/2) × (15%/365) = ¥30,000 × 33 × 0.00041 = ¥406
      • NTD revolving interest: (NT$5,000 - NT$2,000) × (32 days from 5/2 to 6/2) × (15%/365) = NT$3,000×32×0.00041 = NT$39

    ※ After paying the minimum payment, the balance is less than NT$1,000/US$35/¥3,500/€25, so the revolving interest is not collected on the settlement date.

Default Penalty

If the cardholder fails to pay the minimum payment before the payment due date each month, or makes payment after the payment due date, he/she shall pay revolving interest according to the agreement, and agree that E.SUN Bank may charge a default penalty based on the billing cycle, which is calculated as follows:

逾期繳款期數 逾期繳款違約金
 逾期繳款達1期者 300元
 逾期繳款達2期者 400元
 逾期繳款達3期者 500元
  • The maximum consecutive default penalty charge to be collected at one stretch is capped at three billing cycles. If payment is made by the due date during that period, the count of consecutive default penalties shall be reset.
  • Default penalty is waived under the following circumstances: The minimum payment due for the cycle is less than NT$1,000/US$35/¥3,500/€25 (different currencies shall be calculated separately per the agreement).

Cash Advance Handling Fee

The handling fee is 3.5% of the cash advance amount plus NT$1,00/US$.35/¥350/€2.5 (different currencies shall be calculated separately per the agreement).

Sales draft retrieval charges

The Bank collects a handling fee for retrieving sales draft copies. NT$50 shall be collected for each copy of domestic sales draft, and NT$100 shall be collected for each copy of overseas sales draft. (if the sales draft of a purchase proves to have been made by an impostor, the retrieval handling fee shall be absorbed by the Bank).

Overseas Transaction Service Fee

All of the cardholder's credit card bills shall be settled in NTD or the designated foreign currency. If a transaction (including online transactions) is made in foreign currency, or if it is conducted overseas in NTD (including overseas designated merchants or online transactions), the cardholder authorizes E. SUN Bank to directly covert it to NTD or the designated foreign currency for settlement, based on the exchange rate on the foreign exchange settlement day stipulated by each international credit card organization. The cardholder agrees to an additional overseas transaction service fee of 1.3% to 1.5% of the amount of each transaction (in particular, 0.8% to 1% of the fee goes to each international credit card organization. For the latest overseas transaction service fees charged by different international credit card organizations, please see the table below.)

國際組織品牌 手續費率
VISA 1.5%
MasterCard 1.5% 1.5%
JCB 1.5% 1.5%

※Reminder: When making a transaction (including overseas designated merchants of the acquiring bank or online transactions), many stores use DCC for settlement, which allows you to use NTD for credit card payment. However, DCC transactions must go through the international settlement mechanism, so an additional 1.3%-1.5% overseas transaction service fee will be charged.

Card Loss Report Fee & Deductible Amount

When the  credit card is lost or stolen, please call to report the loss  immediately , E.SUN Bank will bear losses from fraudulent use in the 24 hours before the loss was reported. The amount of loss borne by the cardholder due to fraudulent is limited to NT$3,000 (except for cash advance transactions). Unless a separate agreement was reached with the Bank to wave or reduce fees for loss report, the cardholder shall pay a handling fee of NT$200 for the loss report. [Cards exempt from loss report fee and deductible amount: World Card, Infinite Card, elite credit cards for doctors, Lucky Titanium card (excluding those with Easy Card function), Visa Signature card (excluding those with Easy Card function), business (precious/platinum) card, Chien-Ming Wang Platinum Card]

Concerns about the Information of purchased

  • The acquiring institution is the institution that summarizes your credit card transactions and requests payment from the Bank. If you have any questions regarding a certain transaction, please notify the Bank to apply to the acquiring institution for re-examination before the payment due date of the current cycle.
  • Since sales drafts are retained by the acquiring designated merchant (the store where the purchase was made), sales draft retrieval takes a relatively long amount of time, retrieval of domestic sales drafts takes two weeks to one month, and retrieval of overseas sales drafts takes four to six weeks. If you submit an application to retrieve sales draft copies before the deadline, after confirming that you made the transaction, the Bank will collects a handling fee for retrieving sales draft copies; NT$50 for each copy of domestic sales draft and NT$100 for each copy of overseas sales draft. (If the transaction was due to reasons not attributable to the cardholder, the handling fee for retrieval of sales drafts shall be borne by the Bank.)

Please complete card activation procedures after verifying the information is correct, and immediately sign the back of the card. When you are using the card for payment in the future, please sign your name the same way on the sales draft.
  • After activating and signing your name on the card, please use the card for payment at a store as soon as possible, and immediately contact the Bank if you find that the card cannot be used.
  • Do not put your credit card close to a magnet to prevent the magnetic strip from being demagnetized and render the credit card unusable.
  • Credit cards may only be used by the cardholder, please do not hand it over to others.
  • To ensure the safety of card use, please do not let other people know your card number or password.

During use

  • If the transaction amount is relatively large, the Bank's authorized personnel will verify your personal data to ensure that the transaction was made by you. Please understand and provide your cooperation because this is for the protection of your rights and interests.
  • When using your credit card for payment, do not let the store clerk take your credit card out of your sight to prevent any chance of fraudulent transaction.
  • Please check your credit cards at any time, if you found someone else used your credit card to purchased goods or the card missing, please immediately report the lost.

  • Do not sign a blank sales draft. Only sign your name after verifying that the total amount on the sales draft is correct.
  • You can inquire the Bank about your available credit line or apply for a temporary credit line before traveling overseas, and use your credit card to make a small purchase at a domestic store to verify that the magnetic stripe is not damaged.
  • If you are asked to pay an additional service fee for the credit card payment or required to pay a minimum amount, notify the Bank and refuse to make the transaction at the designated merchant.
  • After each payment using your credit card, please retain the sales draft for verification with the credit card transaction details and reconciliation statement mailed by the Bank.
  • If the amount on the sales draft is incorrect or you want to cancel the transaction, you can ask the store to issue a sales draft with a negative amount so that the two transactions offset each other, and then issue a sales draft with the correct amount (however, if you use the offset method for a refund when you are overseas, you may still need to bear losses from exchange rate difference and international settlement). Please properly retain the stub page of the sales draft and ask the merchant for a sales return form, so that it can be used for reconciliation in the future.
  • For the convenience of cardholders and to allow them to enjoy fast transactions, if the cardholder has good credit, the Bank will provide excess authorization and if the international organization or acquiring institution encounters abnormal Internet connection when processing a transaction, it will approve the credit card transaction on behalf of the Bank instead of the Bank checking the available credit limit. Hence, the cardholder may exceed the credit line, but will still be responsible for repaying the amount in excess of the credit line.

After use

  • Make payments on time to improve your personal credit and retain receipts for at least one month to protect your rights and interests.
