ABSTRACT
The article reports that RBC is the first Canadian bank to offer debit card usage in the U.S. for its Canadian customers. RBC clients can use their debit cards to access their primary Canadian checking account for purchases at more than one million retailers in the U.S. This new service is a result of an alliance between Acxsys Corp., the architects of the Interanational PIN debit network in Canada and NYCE Corp., one of the largest debit networks in the U.S. Canadian customers will use the debit cards in the same manner as in Canada. The payment tenninal or PIN pad prompts the cardholder to confirm the transaction number and enter the PIN.
