Commerce offers two ways for you to obtain checking account Overdraft Services:
- Check Plus Overdraft Protection is an Overdraft Cash Advance from your Commerce Bank credit card to cover Commerce Bank checking account overdrafts.
- Overdraft Transfer is a transfer from another Commerce checking, savings or money market account (linked account) that you designate to cover Commerce Bank checking account overdrafts.
Option 1: Check Plus Overdraft Protection
How It Works:
- If a checking account overdraft occurs, we'll automatically cover it, up to your available credit limit, with an Overdraft Cash Advance from your Commerce Bank credit card. Funds will be deposited into your checking account.1
- You'll receive a notice of the transfer. Overdraft Cash Advances are made once per day in increments of $50.
- The cost of utilizing Check Plus Overdraft Protection is the Cash Advance fee (5% with a $10 minimum) plus Interest at the Cash Advance rate, which begins accruing on the day of the Cash Advance.

Option 2: Overdraft Transfer
How It Works:
- If a checking account overdraft occurs, we'll automatically cover it with a transfer from the linked account, up to the available funds in the linked account.

- The Overdraft Transfer will be in the total amount of the checks and other debits overdrawing your checking account, bringing your checking account to a $0 balance, if there are sufficient available funds in the linked account.
