When you use your Clair Debit Mastercard, Mastercard processes the transaction and  collects a percentage of the sale from the merchant. Mastercard then shares a portion  of this fee to the issuer of the debit card, Pathward, N.A. and Pathward, N.A. shares a  portion of that fee with Clair. 

It truly is a win-win situation. Clair makes money every time you use your Clair Debit  Mastercard. This allows Clair’s services to remain free* for our users.
