Georgia's Own Introduces New Electronic Payment Options

Pay Your Family and Friends with Popmoney®

Popmoney is a person to person (P2P) payment service that allows you to send money to almost anyone, anywhere using only their email address or mobile number. So whether you need to pay your friend back for concert tickets or your sister for mom's birthday present, you can use Popmoney without having to write a check or go to an ATM.

To access Popmoney, simply select the "Payments" widget inside online banking and click the "Popmoney" tab. If you are not enrolled in Georgia's Own Bill Pay, you will be asked to register when you click the "Payments" widget (a Georgia's Own checking account is required).

1. Send money to the recipient's email address or mobile phone number 2. They'll receive notification of the payment 3. The money is deposited into their account. Voila!

Please note: there is a $1.00 fee per payment sent. It is free to receive payments.

Account to Account (A2A) Transfers

An account to account transfer allows you to easily transfer funds between your accounts, such as from an account at a U.S. based financial institution to your Georgia's Own checking account. There are three options for account to account transfers:

  1. Your U.S. based financial institution to your Georgia's Own account — $1.00 per transfer
  2. Other Financial Institution to Georgia's Own
  3. Your Georgia's Own account to your U.S. based financial institution — $3.00 per transfer
  4. Georgia's Own to Other Financial Institution
The Transfer Money feature within the Bill Payment Center allows you to create account to account transactions and sends as an Automated Clearing House (ACH) transaction. You may add your personal checking, savings and money market accounts for the purpose of making transfers.

Same Day Bill Pay

Same day bill payment allows you to expedite online payments to certain qualifying online payees. A large list of popular billers/merchants is available. The list includes AT&T Mobility, Dish Network, Gas South, Sprint and many others. If your payee is eligible for same day payments, a link for Pay Today is provided. In addition, the expedited fee of $9.95 will also be displayed.

Same day bill payments cannot be modified or cancelled by you or the credit union once submitted. So extreme care should be taken in scheduling these payments.
