(E.g.: Yoyo has had an EasyCard for 2 years and 5 months. At the time of her application for refund, the balance on the card is -NT$18, and the card had been intentionally altered. Therefore, when calculating the refund, the NT$18 that made up the shortfall in the remaining credit is deducted from the NT$100 deposit, then a further NT$60 is deducted for the damage to the card. Thus, her total refund is NT$22.) Instructions: 1. The EasyCard has no expiration date. However, if you have not used the card for more than 2 years, you must top it up to reactivate it. 2. If your EasyCard has been overdrawn, you can ask any Taipei Metro information counter or the EasyCard Corporation for assistance. Once the application is received, the EasyCard Corporation will contact the customer within 7 working days. The refund will be paid out by bank transfer, posted check or refund notice.
3. The credit (or any part thereof) held on the card cannot be refunded except when returning the card for usage termination. 4. The same EasyCard must be used when entering and exiting transfer parking lots.
5. A one-time overdraft can be made If the transaction value is in excess of the available balance. However, you must then top up your EasyCard as soon as possible, as the card cannot be used as long as the balance remains negative (including for bus transfer). 6. Overdrafts are not permitted when using your EasyCard for small payments at commissioned stores. 7. For customer protection, the total value held on all EasyCards is held in the EasyCard Prepaid Trust Fund, managed by the assigned bank. All EasyCard deposits are protected by a 100% refund guarantee issued by the assigned Bank.
