You can easily change the transaction limits for your accounts on OP-mobile and in the op.fi service. Considering that such daily limits make it safer to use the account, you should set them. You can change the limits temporarily when you make bigger purchases, for example.

You can set two types of transaction limits for your account:

  • For the biggest possible one-time withdrawal 
  • For the total daily withdrawals, or the maximum amount of money you can withdraw within one day.

The transaction limits relate to:

  • cash withdrawals
  • real-time credit transfers and
  • card payments which are automatically checked against during payment whether the account has sufficient funds.

The transaction limits do not affect the amounts submitted to the payment service payable on the due date.

Read the instructions for changing the transaction limits of your account

 

Also set spending/withdrawal limits for each card

It is advisable to set card-specific spending/withdrawal limits with which you specify daily limits for cash withdrawals, POS payments and online payments.

You can change your cards’ spending and withdrawal limits on OP-mobile and in the op.fi service. You can also call our Customer Service or visit an OP cooperative bank branch.

You can set the limits separately for your card's debit and credit sides.
