Otherwise, finance charge will be charged on (i) the outstanding statement balance from the day after the date of that statement on a daily basis until payment in full and (ii) the amount of each new transaction (entered after the date of that statement) from the date such transaction is posted on a daily basis until payment in full.
Unless otherwise specified, finance charge on internet bill payment, JET payment or bill payment through our customer services hotline ("Bill Payment") will be charged on the same basis and APR as Retail Purchase. For Bill Payment of the merchant category of "Security Broker", finance charge will be charged on the same basis as Retail Purchase at the APR of 37.97%* (when you open your account, subject to review from time to time). For Bill Payment of the merchant categories of "Banking and Credit Card Services", "Credit Card Payment" and/or "Credit Services", finance charge will be charged at the APR of 37.14% from the date a Bill Payment is made until the date of actual repayment.

APR for Cash Advance

39.53% when you open your account and it will be reviewed from time to time. Finance charge will be charged from the date a cash advance is made until the date of actual repayment.

• Others 4.3% (41.80%*)
The APR of the corresponding Adjusted Interest Rate is shown in brackets.
The Adjusted Interest Rate will apply from the day following the date of the monthly statement issued after the occurrence of the delinquency until the full amount or at least the minimum payment is paid on or before the payment due date for 6 consecutive monthly statements.

Fees relating to Foreign Currency Transaction

1.95% of every transaction effected in a currency other than Hong Kong dollar

Fee relating to Settling Foreign Currency Transaction in Hong Kong Dollars

Customers may sometimes be offered the option to settle foreign currency transactions in Hong Kong dollars at the point of sale overseas. Such option is a direct arrangement offered by the overseas merchants and not the card issuer. In such cases, customers are reminded to ask the merchants for the foreign currency exchange rates and the percentage of handling fees to be applied before the transactions are entered into since settling foreign currency transactions in Hong Kong dollars may involve a cost higher than the foreign currency transaction handling fee. For these transactions in Hong Kong dollars made outside Hong Kong, we will not charge any further markup.

Late Payment Fee

A blanket fee of HK$350 or the minimum payment, whichever is lower.

Over-the-limit Fee

Overlimit Charge: HK$250 per statement cycle

Handling Charge on Dishonoured Cheque / Autopay Rejection: HK$120 per transaction of returned payment

PaperStatement Fee

HK$50 per customer per annum, if you have received at least one paper statement within the previous calendar year (i.e January to December every year)

* These APRs are calculated based on a modified calculation made by the Bank. The corresponding APRs calculated in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (“HKMA Guidelines”) are as follow:

APRs based on the modified calculation by the Bank APRs based on HKMA Guidelines

2. For the purpose of these terms and conditions, each of the following terms shall have the corresponding meaning: “Eligible Transaction” shall mean an Online Transaction. “Online Transaction” shall mean a transaction for the purchase of any products at an online merchant as so determined at the sole and absolute discretion of the Bank. For the avoidance of doubt, the following types of transactions are not considered Eligible Transactions for the purpose of this Promotion: cash advance and its handling/administration fees, Card Interest-Free Instalment Loan, Fee Based Instalment Programme, Flexi-Shopping Programme, transactions in Hong Kong Dollars at online merchant whose place of registration and/or settlementis outside Hong Kong, casino chips, foreign exchange, securities transaction, reversed transactions, transaction that has been subject to cancellation, charge-back, return of goods and/or refund or any other categories as the Bank may at its discretion determine from time to time.

3. Under this Promotion, an Eligible Transaction conducted with an Applicable Card will be automatically posted to the Cardholder’s Applicable Card account only in the statement following the statement in which it should have originally been posted. Registration by the Cardholder for this Promotion is not required. As a result, the Cardholder shall be able to enjoy an interest-free repayment period of up to 90 days. The following example illustrates the mechanics of this Promotion:
Assuming that the statement date is on the 1st day of each month and the payment due date shall be 30 days from the statement date, if a Cardholder has conducted an Eligible Transaction on 10 August, the Eligible Transaction would originally be posted in the statement to be issued on 1 September and the payment due date for the Eligible Transaction would have been 30 September. Under this Promotion, the Eligible Transaction will be posted in the statement to be issued on 1 October instead and, accordingly, the payment due date for the Eligible Transaction would be deferred to 30 October.

4. The available credit limit of the Cardholder's Applicable Card account will be reduced by the whole amount of the Eligible Transaction from the date the Eligible Transaction was conducted.

5. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the DBS Personal Credit Card Terms and Conditions, if the statement balance of the statement in which the Eligible Transaction should be posted originally is not paid in full on or before the relevant payment due date, finance charge for the Eligible Transaction shall accrue from the day following the date of that statement. Taking the example in Clause 3 above, the following illustrates how finance charge is accrued:
Assuming that the statement issued on 1 September is not paid in full on or before 30 September, finance charge for the Eligible Transaction conducted on 10 August shall accrue from 2 September notwithstanding that the Eligible Transaction will only be posted in the statement to be issued on 1 October.

6. The Bank reserves the right only to make the Promotion available to Cardholders whose Applicable Card accounts are in good standing, valid and not in default. If the status of a Cardholder’s Applicable Card account has changed, the Bank may terminate the Promotion in respect of the Cardholder without notice.

7. The Bank may change these terms and conditions and/or modify or terminate the Promotion without prior notice. The Bank's decision is final.

8. Should there be any conflict between these terms and conditions and the DBS Personal Credit Card Terms and Conditions, the former shall prevail.

9. The English version shall prevail if there is any inconsistency between the English and Chinese versions.

The total amount (whether principal, interest, costs, fees and/or other amounts payable) incurred on all Card Accounts by the Principal Cardholder, the Supplementary Cardholder(s), the Private Label Cardholder(s) and/or the Linked Cardholder(s), whether or not immediately due, when added together, must not exceed the combined credit limit set for each Principal Cardholder. If an individual credit limit is set in respect of a Card Account, the total amount (whether principal, interest, costs, fees and/ or other amounts payable) incurred on that Card Account by the Principal Cardholder, the Supplementary Cardholder(s), the Private Label Cardholder(s) and/or the Linked Cardholder(s), whether or not immediately due, when added together, must not exceed the credit limit set for that Card Account. The credit limit is uncommitted and we may, where necessary, review, vary or cancel the individual credit limit of any Card Account and/or the combined credit limit at our discretion without notice.

2.2  EXCEEDING CREDIT LIMIT

We may choose to authorise certain Card transactions that would result in a credit limit (being the combined credit limit and/or an individual credit limit in respect of a Card Account) being exceeded. You may make a request for us to decline to authorise Card transactions exceeding a credit limit (being the combined credit limit and/or an individual credit limit in respect of a Card Account). Despite such request, the total amount incurred on a Card Account may exceed a credit limit as a result of circumstances beyond our control (“Exceptional Transactions”). Exceptional Transactions may include, but are not limited to:
(a) transactions which do not require authorisation for effecting payment;
(b) transactions which have a posting amount exceeding the amount presented for authorisation caused, for example, by currency exchange fluctuation or surcharges levied by a merchant;
(c) transactions that are within the credit limit at the time of authorisation but, at the time they are submitted by the merchant for posting (often after a prolonged period of time), the credit limit may have been exceeded or they may cause the credit limit to be exceeded; or
(d) transactions directly authorised by the relevant card association (e.g. VISA, MasterCard, etc.).
Whenever your credit limit has been exceeded (including by amounts incurred from Exceptional Transactions), that part of the balance owing which exceeds the applicable credit limit (being the combined credit limit and/or any individual credit limit in respect of a Card Account) shall be immediately due and payable by you.

2.3  TRANSACTIONS WITHIN CREDIT LIMIT

We may also refuse to authorise any Card transaction that you wish to effect even though it would not cause a credit limit to be exceeded.

3.  LOSS/THEFT OF CARD AND DISCLOSURE OF PIN/TIN

3.1  DUTY TO PREVENT LOSS/THEFT/FRAUD

Your Card remains our property at all times. You must keep your Card securely and ensure that your PIN/TIN is not disclosed to any other person. You must take all reasonable steps to keep your Card safe and your PIN/TIN secret and to help prevent fraud. In particular:
(a) printed copies of the PIN/TIN should be destroyed;
(b) no one else should be permitted to use any Card and/or any PIN/TIN;
(c) a PIN/TIN should never be written on a Card or on anything kept with or near it, and should frequently be changed;
(d) if it is written down, a PIN/TIN should always be disguised;
(e) a self-selected PIN/TIN should avoid easily accessible personal information such as your identity card number, date of birth, telephone number or other obvious numbers;
(f) the PIN/TIN should never be used in other services (such as services on the internet);
(g) each Card should be kept safely; and
(h) each Card should only be used in accordance with such procedures, instructions and security features as may from time to time be notified to you.

3.2  DUTY TO NOTIFY US

Should you discover that your Card or PIN/TIN is lost, stolen or used in an unauthorised way, you must notify us as soon as reasonably practicable upon discovery of the loss, theft or unauthorised use by calling our Customer Services Hotline at 2290 8888 or our Report Lost or Stolen Card Hotline at 2832 6603. In certain circumstances, we may also require you to make a police report accompanied by written confirmation of the loss, theft or unauthorised use and any other information that we may require.

3.3  LIABILITY FOR LOST/STOLEN CARDS AND UNAUTHORISED TRANSACTIONS

(a) Provided that you have not acted fraudulently or with gross negligence and you have not failed to inform us in accordance with clause 3.2 above of the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your Card and/or the PIN/TIN, subject to clause 18.4 below, you shall not be liable for any unauthorised transactions (except cash advances) carried out before and/or after we have been notified of the loss, theft or unauthorised use, and we will waive your liability:
(i) arising due to misuse of a Card, if that Card is not received by you;
(ii) for any or all transactions not authorised by you after we have been given adequate notification that the Card and/or PIN/TIN has been lost, stolen or used in an unauthorised way or that someone else knows the PIN/ TIN (subject to clause 3.4 below);
(iii) where a fault has occurred at any terminal, or in any other system of any bank, which cause you to suffer loss, unless the fault was obvious or advised by a message or notice on display;
(iv) due to failure of our security features in respect of the Card; and/or
(v) when transactions are made through the use of counterfeit cards or fraud (not involving you).
(b) Notwithstanding the application of clause 3.3(a) above, your liability for any monthly or other periodic payment arrangements already established before we have been notified of the loss, theft or unauthorised use shall continue in accordance with clause 18.4.
(c) Our liability for loss incurred by you in any of the circumstances mentioned above shall be limited to our above waiver of your liability to us for the total amount (whether principal, interest or otherwise) charged to the Card in such circumstances.
(d) For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to notify us of the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your Card and/or the PIN/ TIN within a reasonable period of time upon the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your Card and/or the PIN/TIN, you shall be deemed to have acted with gross negligence by failing to take reasonable steps to keep the Card and/or PIN/ TIN safe to prevent fraud.

3.4  FRAUD OR NEGLIGENCE

If you have acted fraudulently or with gross negligence (including, but not limited to, you not acting in accordance with clauses 3.1 and 3.2, or you have failed to follow the safeguards that we recommend to you from time to time), then clause 3.3(a) shall not apply and you shall be liable and agree and undertake to:
(a) pay promptly on demand all debts, liabilities and/or other amounts from time to time owing under the Card Account; and
(b) hold us harmless and indemnify us on a full indemnity basis and on demand for any liability for loss, damage, reasonable costs and expenses which we may suffer or incur by reason of:
(i) any transaction conducted with the Card or otherwise incurred under the Card Account;
(ii) any information supplied in relation to the application for or use or loss of the Card being false, incomplete or inaccurate; and/or
(iii) all consequences arising from each Cardholder’s breach of this Agreement (including consequences of any Card coming into the possession of any unauthorised person).

4.1  LIABILITY FOR TRANSACTIONS

We shall send the Principal Cardholder a Card Account statement every month listing the transactions posted to the Card Account, including the Medical Expenses. You shall be liable for all transactions effected or authorised through the use of the Card even if no sales draft is signed by you and/or the credit limit (being the combined credit limit and/or any individual credit limit in respect of a Card Account) is exceeded.

Subject to clause 4.3(b) and anything to the contrary in any applicable Supplementary Terms and Conditions, if the statement balance of a statement is not paid in full on the payment due date, then:
(i) the outstanding statement balance will be subject to a finance charge calculated and accrued on a daily basis from the day after the date of that statement; and
(ii) every new transaction posted to the Card Account after the date of that statement will also be subject to the finance charge accruing from the date such transaction is posted to your Card Account, until the amount shown in the most recent Card Account statement or correspondence from us, our agent(s) or lawyer(s) (whichever is the most recent) is paid in full. The finance charge is calculated at a prevailing rate as shown in the Fee Schedule or any other notice.
(d) If you fail to pay the minimum payment on the payment due date as specified in any monthly statement, then:-
(i) your Card Account will be regarded as in a delinquent status,
(ii) a late fee and a finance charge ( adjusted by a delinquency adjustment rate, if applicable) will be charged at the rate shown in the Fee Schedule or any other notice; and
(iii) we may suspend your use of the Card and/or Card Account. For details of delinquency adjustment, please refer to the Fee Schedule or any other notice issued by us from time to time.

(b) We will charge interest on cash advances and Specified Bill Payments and relevant fees in the form of finance charge at the prevailing rates from time to time shown in the Fee Schedule or any other notice. Finance charge will be charged from the date a cash advance or a Specified Bill Payment (as appropriate) is made until the date of actual repayment.

4.4  FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSACTIONS

All payments to us must be made in Hong Kong Dollars. We or other third parties (such as the banks of merchants) will convert Card transactions not denominated in Hong Kong Dollars into Hong Kong Dollars at the rate selected by the relevant card association (e.g. VISA, MasterCard, etc.) from a range of wholesale market rates or government-mandated rates, or (where converted by other third parties) at the other third party’s applicable exchange rate on the conversion date, plus an additional foreign exchange rate adjustment set by us together with any fees charged by the relevant card association to us, if applicable.

Once the Principal Card is terminated, all Supplementary Card(s), Private Label Card(s) and Linked Manulife Card(s) will automatically be terminated. However, the Principal Card shall remain valid if any of Supplementary Card, Private Label Card and/or Linked Manulife Card is terminated.

5.3  OBLIGATIONS UPON TERMINATION

We are not liable in any way should you encounter any defect, deficiency or problem with any goods or services that you obtain from any merchant through the use of your Card nor are we responsible for any benefits, discounts or promotion programmes of any merchant that are available to you through your use of the Card.

Any of our records relating to Card transactions conducted with your authorisation (whether with or without your signature) and/or PIN/TIN validation are conclusive evidence of their accuracy and authenticity and shall be binding on you for all purposes. All Card transactions, fees, charges, interests and/ or other amounts payable by you will be charged to the Card Account in Hong Kong Dollars. A statement showing, amongst other things, the amounts so charged and the payment due date, will be sent to you monthly (or at such other intervals as we may decide from time to time).

The Card Account balance may be requested by contacting the Customer Services Hotline.

You agree to examine each Card Account statement received from us and to notify us of any alleged error or omission within 60 days after such statement was provided, whether by personal delivery, posting or any other arrangement described in clause 14.1.

Payments to us shall be treated as made only when the relevant funds have actually been received. We shall use the payment amount we received to settle firstly, any billed fees, charges and interest, then 1% of the statement balance (excluding the billed fees, charges and interest) (collectively, the “Minimum Payment”). Any amount in excess of the Minimum Payment shall be applied to settle the remaining portion of the statement balance in the order of (i) Fee Based Instalment or COMPASS VISA Flexi-Shopping (as the case may be) and Instalment Loan (that is, Call-a-loan, CV+ Flexi Cash and ecPayment); (ii) cash advance; (iii) retail transaction; and (iv) Funds Transfer, from that with highest interest rate to lowest interest rate.

We reserve the right to vary the above order for appropriation of any payment received by us to or towards any indebtedness due to us at our sole discretion.

11.  AMENDMENT

We may from time to time by notice to you change any of these terms and conditions and/or the Fee Schedule (including the applicable credit limit of the Cardholder and/or Card Account, payment terms, interest rates, handling charges, annual fees and other fees and charges as stipulated in the Fee Schedule). Such changes will become effective and binding on you on the effective date specified by us and will apply to all outstanding balances on the Card Account. At least 60 days’ notice of changes to fees or other charges payable and of changes that increase your liabilities or obligations will be given. Retention or use of the Card after the effective date of any change will constitute your acceptance of such change. If you do not accept any proposed change, the Card and Card Account must be terminated in accordance with clause 5.2 prior to the effective date of the change.

In addition to these methods of service, we may serve you by any other method permitted by law. It is your responsibility to ensure that your address and other contact details notified to us are correct and up to date at all times.

15.  DISPUTED AMOUNT PROCEDURE

If you report an unauthorised transaction or a disputed insurance claim to us before the payment due date, you may withhold payment of the disputed amount during the investigation period. Such transaction will be removed from the statement if in the case of unauthorised transactions, our investigation concludes that your report was correct or, in the case of disputed insurance claims, Manulife issues a written notification to us to conclude the disputed insurance claim. Otherwise we may re- impose the applicable interest and/or finance charges over the whole period, including the investigation period.

16.  CARD INSTALMENT LOAN

Any payment instalment loan entered into through the use of a Card shall be governed by separate terms and conditions (as amended from time to time).

Such transactions are subject to the relevant terms and conditions governing your bank account from time to time. The records of any banking transaction shall (in the absence of manifest error) be conclusive against and binding on you, and the records will only appear on the relevant bank account statement. Banking transactions may not be conducted using a Supplementary Card unless the Supplementary Cardholder’s relevant bank account can be operated with his/her single signature.

18.  MISCELLANEOUS

18.1  RECOVERY OF COSTS

We may, at our discretion, engage debt collection agents and/ or lawyers for collection of any moneys owing by you to us or for enforcement of any of our rights against you hereunder. You shall indemnify us on demand in respect of all collection costs and expenses that we reasonably incur. The total collection costs from engaging debt collection agents to be recovered shall in normal circumstances not exceed 30% of the amount owing by you to us. For the avoidance of doubt, the abovementioned ceiling of 30% shall not apply to the costs and expenses we incur from engaging lawyers.

18.2  INSTRUCTIONS FROM YOU

Requests or instructions from you should, unless permitted by us otherwise, be in writing and signed by you. We may choose to accept any instruction made through electronic mail, facsimile or telephone, including such instruction that we in good faith believe is given by you even if you have not actually given such instruction. Any non signature-bearing instruction shall be given to us at your risk and we shall not be responsible for any loss or damage that you may suffer. You shall on demand indemnify us in respect of any losses, claims, actions, proceedings, demands, damages, costs and expenses (including all reasonable legal cost and expenses properly incurred) and any other liabilities howsoever arising in consequence of us in good faith acting upon or in reliance on the authenticity of any written, electronic mail, facsimile or telephone instruction given as aforesaid.
