mChek on AirtelmChek is a new payment system that link your debit/credit card or SBI bank account to your mobile phone, allowing you to make payments from your mobile phone.

They have tie-up with Airtel which allows Airtel subscribers to download mChek application which provides simple graphic interface to use mChek. There are no charges for downloading as well as using mChek as of now. I tested it and its working really nice.

  2. mchek is not working in my mobile. my set is totaly compatible for gprs & also java supported. my set name is motorola L-7. is their any risk when i use debit card or sbi debit card.

  3. mcheck maybe violating a patent on USSD based communication. Check this out,US Patent 6330445 – Method and system for routing of a USSD message

    we wanted to use the same thing for our implementation but stayed away fromit.

    1. @Jason
      I am not much aware about inside information regarding mChek.
      I only now its not working well enough recently.
      May be they are going through some sort of problem.

  4. Hi
    I just gave my bank Debit Card Number. May i know how to recharge the Pre-Paid airtel number. do they take any transaction fee???


  5. @ Jerome:

    No there is no transaction fees charged by Airtel. Infact there was an offer in my circle (Orissa) wherein by recharging using you mChek a/c of Rs. 155 you’ll get balance in the main a/c of Rs. 255. ๐Ÿ™‚ Isn’t it kuel?

    Well if you have downloaded mChek application than you have to follow the procedure from the application, else you can send an sms: “RECHARGE ” to 543219 and you’ll be directed to enter your pin and you are done ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. i recently registered with mcheck.

    Second, while directly registering the account an automated reply comes on the screen stating ‘This service is unavailable. We will inform you when it is available with SBI’.
    Isn’t the facility available with SBI as of now?

    mChek is a mobile payment solution which securely links your credit or debit card to your mobile number and helps make payments from your mobile.

    As of now mChek supports debit cards only for ICICI, Standard Chartered and HDFC Banks. Please contact respective bank Customer care to apply for mChek debit cards.

    I will update you as and when new Banks come on board mChek to enable mChek debit cards to consumers.

  31. Topping up my prepaid Airtel with MChek I get the message that you have already used your monthly limit of Rs 750, please try next month!! I haven’t set any such limit either on my mChek account or my credit card, and there is no provision on mChek account management to increase the limit. On mChek’s website, I can’t find any customer service phone numbers and their “Contact Us” page is the most uninformative of all websites I have seen. Very strange company!
