What is the maximum daily limit for credit card and debit card payments?


There is a $49,999.99 daily limit per credit card account. There is no daily limit for debit cards.

All credit card and debit card payments are processed through the Department of the Treasury's Pay.gov system. The daily limit for credit cards is automatically enforced through the Pay.gov system. If cardholders exceed the daily limit, a message indicates that the maximum daily limit has been reached and the payment will be rejected.

Existing alternatives for submitting large dollar payments are deposit account, electronic funds transfer (EFT) over the USPTO Website, and wire transfer.
