What is Popmoney?

The Popmoney personal payment service lets you send money to friends, family or almost anyone. All you need is their name and email address or mobile telephone number to move money from your bank account to theirs. Popmoney is an innovative personal payment service that eliminates the hassles of checks and cash. Now, sending and receiving money is as easy as emailing and texting.



+ How does Popmoney work?

Popmoney works through the online banking and bill pay services, using the same systems and security you rely on today.

To send money, all you need is the name and email address or mobile telephone number of the person to whom you are sending money. They will receive a personalized email or text message notification that comes directly from you.

If their bank or credit union offers Popmoney, they can simply access Popmoney through Online Banking. If their bank or credit union does not offer Popmoney, they can pick up the funds just as easily at Popmoney.com**.

The money will move from your Seneca Savings account to theirs—without having to exchange financial account information with each other.

If you are owed money, you can request it from someone using their email address or mobile number. When someone sends you money through Popmoney, it will be deposited directly into the Seneca Savings checking or savings account that you’ve designated as your primary account.

+ Is Popmoney secure?

From the moment information is sent to the Popmoney personal payment service, throughout the entire transaction process, it is kept highly secure using industry-leading technology.
