Customers who already have a ScotiaCard or Scotiabank credit card can activate the online banking services on the Scotiabank website. They need to provide their card number, date of birth, home phone number, home address postal code and mother's maiden name to activate the service online.
Alternatively, customers can register their ScotiaCard or Scotiabank credit card for accessing online banking services by visiting a Scotiabank branch. They can also register by phone. As of 2015, the telephone number for registration is 800-472-6842. Once registered, customers can use their card number and password to access online banking services such as pay bills, check account balance, transfer money and check bank statements.
