I use Google Pay/Apple Pay® for my purchases. Can I load my card in there?

Can I see my SouthState Credit Card in Debit Card Controls as well?

No. If you currently have a SouthState Credit Card, you will continue to access your credit card the same way you have always accessed it.

I currently have multiple alerts set up in Online Banking. Will alerts related to debit card transactions transfer to Debit Card Controls?

If you are enrolled in Account Alerts, you will continue to receive these alerts. This means, if you enroll in Debit Card Controls alerts, you may receive multiple alerts for a transaction.

Debit Card Controls supports alerts via push notifications and email. SouthState Mobile App users will receive push notifications as a delivery method by default. Online Banking users will receive email notifications by default. In order to receive push notifications from the app, users must log in to the Mobile App.

IMPORTANT – Debit Card Controls Alerts are “Turned On” for All Transactions by Default
  • Alert for all transactions—This is enabled by default, meaning you will receive alerts to your preferred communication channel for all transactions unless you choose to customize.
  • Alert for selected transactions—To customize alerts, you can select Controls & Alerts from the home page, select the Alerts tab, and then select Alert for Select Transactions. Selected Transaction options are: Locations (region), Merchant Types, Transaction Types, and Spend Limits. For example, if you enable an alert for a specific transaction type, such as ATM or Online, then you will receive alerts for just those transaction types. If this option is selected, but no additional selections are made for the available categories (Locations (region), Merchant Types, Transaction Types, Spend Limits), then  you will not receive any of these notifications.
  • No transaction alerts— You may select this option to stop receiving transaction alerts via Debit Card Controls. (If you are enrolled in Account Alerts, you will continue to receive those alerts.)

Is there a duration limit for travel plans in Debit Card Controls?

Yes. Travel plans have a standard duration limit of 15 days. If you are traveling for longer than 15 days, you may need to set up two travel plans.

If I get a new Debit Card, is it possible to activate it using Debit Card Controls?

If a card has not yet been activated, you can select Activate Card on the card image to activate your card. From there, you will be prompted to enter your expiration date and security code (CVV/CVV2). If entered correctly, the card will be activated, and you will have the option to add the card to your digital wallet.

When my debit card expires, will my new card automatically be added to Debit Card Controls? 

Yes. Your new card will automatically be added to Debit Card Controls. You may be able to view your new card in Debit Card Controls before you receive the physical card. Please be aware, you will not be able to activate your new card through Debit Card Controls until you have the physical card in hand.

Can I add my spouse’s debit card to my Debit Card Controls?

All active debit cards tied to you are automatically loaded into Debit Card Controls in your Online Banking profile.
