MasterCard®Automatic Billing Updater (ABU)

As a service to you, MasterCard® will require all financial institutions to participate in an Account Updater Service, known by MasterCard® as Automatic Billing Updater (ABU).  ABU will provide updates to your selected merchants who maintain your Bank of Eastman or Magnolia State Bank's debit card information on file, to process your preauthorized payments.  Examples of these merchants include subscription services or utility companies, etc.  This service is only for recurring payment merchants.

This service will allow participating merchants to receive your updated card information when you receive a new debit card for any reason, such as an expired card, lost or stolen card, etc.  Automated updating eliminates the worry of interrupted service which could result in associated fees and/or fines from your recurring merchants.

While we feel that participation in MasterCard® ABU is a benefit to you, you may opt-out of this service at any time by contacting your local branch.
