It's easier than a check, safer than cash and works like a credit card. Like a check, it draws directly from your checking account. CheckCard is convenient because it's accepted anywhere MasterCard is honored, and CheckCard is also an ATM card. All CheckCard transactions are itemized on your monthly checking account statement.

MasterCard SecureCode enhances your current Republic Bank CheckCard account with a secret code to protect against unauthorized use of your Republic Bank CheckCard when you shop at participating merchants.
What is MasterCard® SecureCode?
MasterCard SecureCode is a new service to enhance your existing MasterCard account. A private code means added protection against unauthorized use of your card when you shop at participating online merchants.
How does MasterCard SecureCode work?
Once you've registered and created your own private SecureCode, you will be automatically prompted by your financial institution at checkout to provide your SecureCode each time you make a purchase with a participating online merchant. Your SecureCode is quickly confirmed by your financial institution and then your purchase is completed. Your SecureCode will never be shared with the merchant. It's just like entering your PIN at an ATM.
How does MasterCard SecureCode protect me?
When you correctly enter your SecureCode during a purchase at a participating online merchant, you confirm that you are the authorized cardholder and your purchase is then completed. If an incorrect SecureCode is entered, the purchase will not be completed. Even if someone knows your credit or debit card number, the purchase cannot be completed without your SecureCode at a participating merchant.
