The upgraded system offers a variety of new features, including:
The Peer-to-Peer payment module allows customers to both request and make quick and simple payments to other Republic Bank customers. With this functionality, you can also structure collection of funds and share expenses. No information of the receiving customer's account is needed, only their cell phone number, which can be selected from the contact list or a new one can be entered if it was not registered. Both the customer initiating the request and the recipient must be active RepublicMobile App customers and have the Payments with Friends feature enabled and configured.
If the recipient has not yet signed up for RepublicMobile or has not configured Payment with Friends, the transaction will remain in a “pending” status and a notification will be sent via SMS to the intended beneficiary along with instructions for downloading the Mobile App for the payment to be completed and confirmed.
This is a mobile app function, which allows the user to be able to see summary information of his/her accounts and cards on the Home screen without having to log in. Upon installing the mobile app, the user can select to activate this functionality, whereby specific ‘Terms and Conditions’ would have to be accepted.

Bank” transfer feature,

If the account number is less than 7 digits, the account number is filled with zeros after the transit number so that the total number of digits is 12.
