Once you have activated Online Banking, you’ll be ready to use our Mobile Banking app too

Where can I access the Online Banking Terms and Conditions?

Just click below or click the link on any page in the Online Services section of our site to review or print the Online Banking Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions contain many details about our online services as well as information regarding important legal matters. If you would like a printed copy mailed to you, please contact Online Banking Customer Service by calling 800-986-2265 or by sending a secure message from within Online Banking or through standard Internet email to mymoney@commercebank.com. (To send an email that contains confidential information, please visit the Secure Message Center where there are additional instructions about whether to use Secure Email or Online Banking messaging.)

Can I activate Online Banking if I don't live in the United States?

Yes. Commerce Bank customers may activate Online Banking through the Internet regardless of their mailing address. Unfortunately, customers with a foreign address are not able to enroll in Online Bill Pay or Online Banking through Quicken.

Why should you change your password at least annually?

Commerce Bank takes a layered approach in protecting your information, and passwords are a critical component to protecting your accounts. Given evolving cyber security threats, online customers should utilize stronger password practices, including using more complex passwords, and changing passwords more frequently.

How do I choose a secure Customer ID and password?

For your protection, please keep in mind the following guidelines as you select a Customer ID or password for Online Banking through the Internet:
  • Customer ID Requirements: Your Customer ID must be between 6 and 32 characters. It should include both letters and numbers. It is not case sensitive. It may not contain special characters, and it cannot be the same as your Password.
  • Password Requirements: Your password must be between 8 and 32 characters. It is case sensitive, and must contain a mixture of lower-case letters, upper-case letters, at least one number and at least one of the following special characters: - ' . , @ : ? ! ( ) $ \ / % ^ * + | { } [ ] ~ ` # .
  • Additional password recommendations:
  • To increase the security of your Online Banking, your password must not contain any letter or number repeated 3 or more times consecutively, such as AAA or 111.
  • It should not include any part of your name or initials or any four consecutive numbers of your social security number, phone number or address.
  • Do not use common words, or words that can be found in the dictionary.
  • Do not write down your password or share it with others.
  • Use passwords that are easy for you to remember, but difficult for anyone else to guess. Personal information such as your birthdate, address, or child’s name can easily be discovered by anyone who knows you or has access to your wallet. o Try using a favorite sport or hobby to create a "passphrase" – a password made up of several words, such as, "I enjoy baseball" can be "IEnj0iB@s3ba11".
  • Or, think of a phrase you like and convert it to a password by using the first letter of each word (as well as numbers) and mixing upper- and lower-case and special characters. Such as "My cat Fluffy is two years old", so your password could be "McFi2YO."
  • Use different passwords for different systems. That way, if one becomes compromised, the others remain secure.
  • Change your password periodically. Security sites recommend your password be changed every 30-60 days.

How do I change my password and Customer ID?

You may change your password and Customer ID through Online Banking by clicking "My Profile" under "Customer Service", then "Password or Customer ID". You will be asked to verify your current password or Customer ID and to select a new password or Customer ID. As you select a new password or Customer ID, please refer to the guidelines above.

Do I need to change my Customer ID when I change my password?

If you have forgotten your password, click on "Forgot your password" from the Online Banking log in page. You will then be asked to confirm your personal identifiable information that we have on file. Please provide the information that is requested and click "Continue." Once the information is verified, you will be given the opportunity to choose a new password.

What if I still need help with my password?

Contact Online Banking Customer Service by calling 800-986-2265. Password resets are available anytime by calling 800-986-2265 and selecting option 1.

How is my financial information protected?

Protecting the privacy and security of your confidential financial information is a top priority. Online Banking uses security levels with end-to-end encryption. Like an ATM "PIN", your accounts are protected with a Customer ID and Password which you should not write down or disclose to anyone. To gain a greater level of protection, we recommend changing your Customer ID and Password on a regular basis. Only you should know your private Customer ID and password, so you can help protect your data. Your Customer ID and password are NOT known to your Internet service provider or to Commerce Bank.

How frequently is my account information updated?

Your pending transactions are updated in real time. These include transactions made at a Commerce ATM, in the teller line, and for certain Visa® Debit Card transactions. Your account information ("Account Detail" and "Current Balance") is updated every business day from the transactions that have cleared your account the previous day. Your "Available Balance" is the portion of your balance that is immediately available for use.

How do I sign up for paperless statements or change my statement option?

To stop receiving paper statements, under “Customer Service”, click on “Account Management” and then “Statement Options” and follow the instructions. Statement Options include:
  • Paperless Statement (FREE for all accounts) – Enjoy the convenience of paperless statements; we’ll store them online and they’re accessible any time. Plus, we’ll send you an email each month to let you know when your new statement is available.
  • Paper Statement – (Fees may apply for Paper Statements. Please see “Statement Options Fee Schedule" for details)– Continue to receive a paper statement every month, but we’ll store your checks for you.
  • Paper Statement with Images – (Fees may apply for Check Image Statements. Please see "Statement Options Fee Schedule" for details) – Receive your statement in the mail, plus you’ll get images of your cancelled checks each month.
  • Paperless Statement with Images – (Fees may apply for Check Image Statements. Please see “Statement Options fee Schedule” for details) – Receive your statement in the mail, plus you’ll get images of your canceled checks each month.

 No matter which option you select, your statements and check images are available to view in Online Banking. Plus, you can elect to receive an email every month when your new statement is available (this is required if you elect Paperless Statements.)
