Money Talks. And Also Texts.
Our text banking gives you 24/7 access to your accounts via text (SMS) messages on your phone. It’s a fast, easy way to look up account balances or recent account history just by sending a text command to the Merchants Bank shortcode. All text messages should be sent to 49794.
Text Banking will work on any text message (SMS) capable phone from one of our supported carriers. Mobile Alerts are a great way to stay alert and arm yourself against identity theft and fraud.
You must first enroll in the SMS/Text Banking in order to subscribe to Mobile Alerts. After registering for this mode, go to your Online Banking alert page. From here you will be able to subscribe to the alerts you wish to receive on your mobile device. Just remember; don’t bank and drive.
