Popmoney allows you to send money to or receive money from anyone in the United States via email or text.
Quick Facts about Popmoney
To send money to a person, enter their e-mail address, mobile number or debit card information and the amount you want to send. Or if you've sent them money previously, just select their name from your send list and enter an amount.
If the person you're sending money to is not registered with Popmoney, they will receive an e-mail inviting them to use the service and to claim the money.
Click History to track money you've sent or received. You can also see any pending transactions.
When someone sends you money the first time, you receive an invitation. This invitation may be an e-mail or a text message, and it contains a secure transaction code which you'll use to claim the money. You will be directed to the Popmoney.com/BBVACompass website where you will enter your e-mail address or mobile number and the secure transaction code. You'll enter your payment account and contact information.
If your financial institution offers Popmoney at their website, you will be directed to use the service there instead of the Popmoney.com site. During the sign up process, the service will let you know if it's offered at your financial institution.
People who do not use a bank or credit union in the Popmoney network can use the Popmoney service at the Popmoney.com site.* There, they can send and receive money just as you do.
*Terms and conditions apply
With Popmoney, three delivery speeds are available to choose from; 3 business days, the next business day or instantly to an eligible debit card. However, in some cases it may take longer. For example, if you send an email or mobile payment and the recipient is not yet registered for the service, he/she must sign up for the service so that we have their account information to deposit their payment. Also, if you exceed your next-day payment limits, then we will deliver payments within three business days.
When you receive your account statement, the payments made through Popmoney usually appear as electronic withdrawals (similar to ATM withdrawals).
Note: In some cases, the payments appear on your account statement just like your other checks. However, the sequence numbers on these transactions are typically higher than the sequence numbers on your checks.
