DebiCheck is a debit order verification system that allows you to accept or reject the creation of new debit orders or changes to your existing debit orders. Previously, some debit orders could be set up on your accounts without your permission or knowledge. DebiCheck makes debit orders much safer than before by letting you see and then approve, new or changed debit orders before they are actioned.

How does DebiCheck work?

Whenever a service provider or a merchant (e.g. a gym membership, car finance etc.) creates a debit order on your account or change the details of an existing debit order, you will be sent a verification request on your cell phone. 

You can then choose to accept or reject it. If you choose to reject, then the debit order or the changes will not get activated. It’s that simple.
