Zero Balance

When a person has a zero balance on their account, it means that there are no available funds for the card or account holder. This could mean that the account has reached its limit, or it could even mean that the account is over its limit.

If someone has zero balance, they may or may not still be able to use their card, depending on the company’s guidelines. If the card is used, an over-limit fee will probably be charged.
