How Different ATMs Work With Your Card

  • SHAZAM ATMs. Your SHAZAM ATM or debit card can be used at any ATM that features the SHAZAM logo. You search for a SHAZAM ATM in a specific area using the SHAZAM ATM in a specific area using the SHAZAM Locator.
  • Non-SHAZAM ATMs. When an ATM does not feature the SHAZAM logo, look for the logo of one of the two international ATM networks: Cirrus or Plus. Your card should display, in addition, to the SHAZAM logo, one of the international network logos. Your card can be used at non-SHAZAM ATMs when the international network logo on the ATM matches the Cirrus or Plus logo on your card.

How Logos Identify Use

The key to finding an ATM or merchant that will accept your card is to match the logos on your card to the ATM or merchant location you wish to use. Logos are displayed on the ATM or merchant location you wish to use. Logos are displayed on the ATM or at the checkout or point of sales (POS):

  • ATM cards. Most ATM cards have two logos or marks on them. They will usually have a regional logo (such as SHAZAM), and an international ATM logo (such as Cirrus or Plus).
  • Debit cards. Most debit cards have three logos or marks on them. In addition to the regional and international ATM logos, they have either a Visa or MasterCard logo.
