Why am I seeing SHQ* on my bank statementIf you've encountered a line item in your credit card statement that looks like SHQ*XXXXXXXX (XXX being a website or company name) then you've come to the right place.
Swipe is an online payment processing service (much like PayPal) used by thousands of small business owners in New Zealand. Chances are, that you used your credit card to purchase some goods and/or services from one of the businesses using Swipe as their payment gateway.
All transactions processed by Swipe on behalf of its merchants appear on cardholder's credit card statement in this manner. The characters following the ‘SHQ*’ should indicate to you the merchant/business/website or company you transacted with.
After a transaction takes place, in some cases Swipe also sends an electronic receipt that comes from notify.swipehq.com and originates from merchant email@example.com email address. You could try searching for such an email in your inbox. Sometimes emails end up in junk folders so its also a good idea to check your junk box as well… just in case.
