As a Firefighters First Credit Union member, you have access to Popmoney® - an innovative person-to-person payment service that eliminates the hassles of writing checks or digging for cash. Conveniently send, receive and request money with an email address, mobile phone number or account number, no matter where they bank.
Popmoney is an electronic payment option that provides you with the convenience of sending money to virtually anyone you know directly from your bank account. You no longer need to visit an ATM to get cash or write a check to make a payment. Recipients simply need to have an eligible US bank account.
Online banking: You will need the recipient's email address, mobile phone number or bank routing and account number.
Mobile app: You will need the recipient's email address or mobile phone number.
- Email address: the recipient will receive an email with instructions on how to direct the payment into his or her bank account.
- Mobile number: a text message will be sent to the recipient with instructions on how to direct the payment into his or her bank account. If the recipient does not respond to the payment notification after 3 days, a reminder text message will be sent reminding him/her to act on the payment notification.
- Bank Account Information (routing and account number): money will be directly deposited into the recipient's account. You will also have the option to send them an email.
If you send money using the recipient's email address or mobile phone number, they will receive an email or text message with instructions on how to deposit the payment into their bank account.
If you send money using the recipient's bank routing and account number, the money will be deposited directly into their account. They will only receive a notification if you enter an optional message when submitting the payment.
