Our overdraft fee for business and consumer checking accounts is $35 per item (whether the overdraft is by check, ATM withdrawal, debit card transaction, or other electronic means); our fee for returning items for nonsufficient funds (NSF) is $35 per item. We charge no more than three (3) overdraft and/or nonsufficient funds (NSF) fees per business day for consumer accounts and eight (8) per business day for business accounts. The overdraft and/or nonsufficient funds fee (NSF) for Wells Fargo Teen CheckingSM accounts is $15 per item, and we will charge no more than two (2) fees per business day. The payment of transactions into overdraft is discretionary and the Bank reserves the right not to pay. For example, the Bank typically does not pay items into overdraft if an account is not in good standing or there have been excessive overdrafts. If there is an overdraft on an account, a deposit or transfer must be promptly made to return the account to a positive balance.
Recurring debit card payments (such as for utilities or club memberships) may continue to be authorized into overdraft at our discretion if there isn't enough money in the account, even if the account is not enrolled in Debit Card Overdraft Service, and our overdraft fees and policies will apply.
