Online Banking Features Save Time and Make Your Life Easier

July 31, 2018

Social media.  Breaking news.  Extended work hours.  Visits to the bank.  Saving time has become paramount.  Online banking options are quickly being embraced by individuals and businesses eager to find less time-consuming and convenient solutions to make banking easy.  Not all online banking services are the same. Many online banking systems offer a variety of extra features, while others provide just the basics. Here are just a few basic online banking features you should consider when trying to streamline your time.

Mobile Check Deposit
Making a deposit to your account using your mobile will provide you with the convenience of making a deposit from anywhere and anytime without visiting a bank location to deposit a check.  You simply download the app provided by the bank and take a photo of the front and back of the check (endorsement should include “For mobile deposit only,” the name of bank and your signature).   Enter the amount and you’ve just completed a mobile deposit!  Check with your bank to learn about daily limits to the amount you can deposit.  And you’ve just saved 30 minutes!

Online Bill Pay
Paying bills online is quick and is just about as easy as it gets. You can opt to have your bill payments withdrawn automatically from your checking accounts or savings, or you can set it up so you can go into the bill pay system to “send” a check.  You’ll never have to worry about missing a monthly payment.  There’s no need to spend time reviewing your check register.  It’s all in online banking.

Easy Account Opening and Management
Many banks offer the option of online account opening.   It can be quick and easy, however, getting the right account will save you time in the long run.  Most people still opt to speak to a banking specialist to ensure they have the right type of account.  The best bankers will take care of all your banking needs and ultimately save you time.

Knowing how to make the most of your online banking services will help you manage your money more efficiently and save time.  For more information about how to get started banking online, contact First Bank of the Palm Beaches.
