Pay people with Popmoney®.

No more checks or fumbling for cash.  With the Popmoney® personal payment service, sending, receiving or requesting money with just about anyone, no matter where they bank*, is safe and secure, quick and easy.

What it is

The Popmoney® personal payment service lets you send, and receive or request money from friends, family or just about anyone with an email address or mobile number*. Popmoney® is a part of our online bill pay service and lets you move money from your bank account to theirs safely and securely, with ease.  And Popmoney® is easy for your friends and family to use at their bank* or at Popmoney.com.

How it works

Popmoney® works through the online banking and bill pay services, using the same systems and security you rely on today.

To send money, all you need is the name and email address or mobile telephone number of the recipient*. They will receive a personalized email or text message notification that comes directly from you.

If their bank or credit union offers Popmoney®, they simply access Popmoney® through Online Banking. If their bank or credit union does not offer Popmoney®, they can pick up the funds just as easily at Popmoney.com**.

The money will move from your First Independence Bank account to theirs—without having to exchange financial account information with each other.

If you are owed money, you can request it from someone using their email address or mobile number. When you are sent the money owed with Popmoney, the funds will be deposited right into the First Independence Bank checking or savings account that you’ve designated as your primary account.
