What is an eBill?
eBill allows you to automatically import due dates and amounts from third-party online billing statements and send an alert to you when it's time to schedule a payment. For example, you may want to set up your online cell phone or credit card account as an eBill inside the Bill Pay dashboard in order to view the payment amount and due date of your current bills and schedule a payment. eBill saves time from logging into each payees online account individually.

How is it secure?
Unlike a traditional payment method, mobile wallets replace your card number with a unique code (or “token”) for each device. When paying with your Mobile Wallet, the merchant will receive your token and not your card number helping to keep your information secure. In addition, these payment methods require you to use your Touch ID thumbprint or a passcode to complete the transaction.
How do I add a card?
Download the mobile wallet app in your device’s app store. Some phones and tablets have a mobile wallet built-in to the device, so you may want to check to see if your device already has one. Once you’ve opened the app, enter your Royal Bank Credit or Debit Card information. Once the card has been approved for your device, you may begin making mobile payments.
What do I need to get started?
You’ll need your Royal Bank Debit and/or Credit Card(s) that you’d like to add to your Mobile Wallet and the mobile device(s) that you’d like to add your debit or credit card to. If you have multiple devices that you’ll be paying with, you’ll likely need to set up your card on each device separately.
How do I use my Mobile Wallet to pay for a purchase?
Pay by simply holding your device to the payment terminal and wait for payment confirmation. Most devices will require you to enter a thumbprint or a passcode to complete the transaction.
How do I return an item that I bought using my Mobile Wallet?
The cashier can use your Device Account Number to find the purchase and process the return, just as they would with a traditional credit or debit card payment. Depending on which Mobile Wallet provider you use, the Device Account Number should be located in your app settings.
How can I check my recent transactions?
When you view your card in your Mobile Wallet, you’ll see the last transaction for each credit or debit card.
What if I lose my phone, tablet or smartwatch?
Most phones, tablets and smart watches require a Touch ID thumbprint or passcode to access the device and to make a payment, so your Mobile Wallet should remain secure. You can also contact the bank to suspend or turn your card off until your device is located.
Can I continue to use my plastic card if I add it to my Mobile Wallet?
Yes! You can still use your plastic debit or credit card, even if you’ve set it up in your Mobile Wallet.
Which accounts can I view?
You can view as many or as few accounts on Online Banking as you wish to have available. Link checking, savings and investment accounts, loans or CDs for free access anytime, anywhere.
How do I transfer funds?
You can do an internal transfer a few different ways:
- From the Main Menu (on left-hand side of screen)

- From the Dashboard, choose the blue "Transfer" button below your accounts listing
- From an account, choose the blue "Transfer" button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen
Choose to do an immediate, scheduled or recurring transfer by choosing "More options" on the transfer screen.
How do I place a stop payment on a check or an electronic payment?

Frequently Asked Questions about our Enhanced Online & Mobile Banking:
Why is Royal Bank changing my Online Banking?
We’re upgrading our online and mobile banking systems to provide customers with the most current banking functionality, convenience, and security. Our new system offers enhanced security and a personalized experience.
What is Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)?
2FA is a security method of confirming a user’s identity by requiring two of three pieces of evidence. In order to successfully access your accounts, you will need to provide something you know (like a PIN or password), something you have (like your phone), or something you are (like Face ID and thumbprint ID). This makes your app and online banking more secure than with only one password.
Banno Mobile example – when you first sign in to your new app, you will have to use your password and then will enter your phone number to be sent a code. After you have been successfully authenticated you will have the option to set up a PIN and/or FaceID or thumbprint ID.
Banno Online example – When you log into your online banking with your username and password, Banno Online will ask you for your email and phone number. After you enter this information a code will be sent to the phone number provided (via text message or through a live call) that you will use to prove your identity and get logged in.
Why do I have to use 2FA now and I didn’t have to before?
Your security is our top priority, and 2FA gives you more security than our previous app. This way you can track what devices are logging into your account and track any changes. It also gives us the opportunity to offer more functionality and features to you to use through our mobile app.
Do I have to go through 2FA every time I log in?
You will have to go through the 2FA process when using a new device to log in, including a new browser, computer or phone. This will also be required if your browser is set to clear all history after closing out of it. 2FA will not remember that the browser has been used previously because the history has cleared. In this case, you will have to go through the 2FA process each time you use the browser, regardless if you’ve used it before.
