People Pay

What are people payments?

People payments are a fast, safe way to send and receive money. You can use it to:

  • Reimburse your roommates for rent and other expenses.
  • Send your niece or nephew a cash birthday gift.
  • Pay back the friend you owe for lunch or those concert tickets.
  • Pay your babysitter, landscaper, or piano teacher with just an e-mail address.

It's Fast: Money is sent with recipient's contact information and payment amount.

It's Convenient: There are two easy ways to send a payment.

  1. Deposit – enter the recipient's banking information and you can deposit the money directly into their account.
  2. Recipient Claims – lets the recipient choose how they want to receive the money.

It's Safe: With People Pay, you never have to visit a third-party website. Everything you need to pay people is right here!
