Debit cards are becoming increasingly popular as a way to receive money. They work just like credit cards, but instead of borrowing money, you use your checking or savings account to fund the purchase. But what if you need to transfer money from your debit card into a cloud bank account, it can be difficult and time-consuming. Luckily, you have got Zil!
Zil’s new feature allows you to transfer money from any debit card directly to your Zil account. This cloud banking feature from Zil provides a secure, quick, and easy way for businesses to manage their daily transactions.
Debit card at a glance
- Debit cards eliminate the need to carry cash or physical checks to make purchases, and they can also be used at ATMs to withdraw cash.
- Debit card purchases can usually be made with or without a personal identification number (PIN).
- Some debit cards offer reward programs, similar to credit card reward programs, such as 1% back on all purchases.
Why should you use a Debit Card to receive Money?
There are many reasons why you should consider using a debit card to receive money. Here are just a few:
Fast and easy – Sending money with a debit card is fast and easy. All you need is your bank account and the routing number for the debit card that you want to use.
Secure – Debit cards are one of the safest ways to send money. Your credit card information is never shared with the bank that issued your debit card.
Cost – Many times, using a debit card is cheaper than using other methods of transferring money, such as sending checks or wiring money.
Multiple Accounts – Many people have multiple accounts with different banks so they can easily receive money from various sources.
No Overdraft Fees – If you have a low balance on your debit card, you won’t have to worry about overdraft fees.

How is a debit card different from a credit card?
In the case of a debit card, you use the money from your own bank account; while in the case of a credit card, you are receiving the credit from your bank, which you will have to repay at a later date with interest.
Is there any limit on the number of transactions I can make?
No, Zil doesn’t make any restrictions on the number of transactions. But your debit provider may have transaction limits.
How long does it take to transfer funds from your debit card to your cloud bank account?
It hardly takes a minute’s time to do the fund transfers. All that a user needs to do is follow the simple procedures mentioned above.
