If you do not pay the total outstanding balance in full by the payment due date, the amount you pay will be allocated to higher interest rate balances before lower interest rate balances. Where fees and charges are payable, your payment will be allocated to the interest rate applicable to these fees and charges relating to any higher interest rates first.
