You have the option of ordering either a "virtual card" OR a "virtual/physical" card.
Virtual cards can be used in any purchase scenario that does NOT require you to present your physical debit card. This includes online purchases, Apple Pay/Android Pay, and even orders made over the phone.
Your card number and CIV (3-digit code on the back of the debit card) will be accessible through the "Chek" app.
Once a "virtual card" is ordered, a Physical version of that card cannot be created later.
Virtual/Physical cards provide the same online access as the "virtual cards." In addition, a Physical Debit Card will be sent to you by mail.
Neither virtual nor physical cards can be used for cash withdrawal from ATMs or cashback transactions.
Once you provide your debit card request details, you will receive a "welcome email" from Chek within 72 hours. At this point, you can use your virtual debit card by downloading the "Chek" app and accessing your card details there.
Those who order a physical/virtual card will receive the physical version of their card within ten working days of receiving their "welcome email."Sample "Welcome Email from Chek."Sample image of Chek's welcome email.
