The minimum of 5 % is calculated for purchase transactions at points of sale and cash withdrawal on ATM machines, whereas membership fee, interest, other fees, installments, as well as the fee for cash withdrawal on ATM machines are fully calculated on monthly invoice. Fixed interest rate in the amount of 30.31 % annually (effective annual interest rate of 31.17 %) is calculated on the amount of debt in RSD, and fixed interest rate in the amount of 19.86 % annually (effective annual interest rate of 20.68 %) is calculated on the amount of debt in EUR.
