Q: How does Popmoney® work?

A: Use Popmoney to send money to anyone in the United States with just the person's email address, mobile phone number or bank routing and account number. The email address or phone number uniquely identifies the person in Popmoney and is used to notify the recipient of your payment. Always verify email addresses and phone numbers with payees before transacting.

If the person is already registered in Popmoney, the payment is directly deposited into the person's account. Payments must be sent to and received by a domestic (U.S.) checking account only. If the person hasn't registered, he/she will receive an invitation that explains how to register for the service and get the money you sent. Popmoney Standard Delivery method is free (payment is delivered in three business days) . Next business day Express Delivery is $3.00 per payment.

You can request payment from an individual or group of people using Request Money. Request Money is $2.50 per person, per request.  

Not applicable for Business accounts.

Q: How do I sign up and send money?

A: To access Popmoney:

  • Sign into ASB Online, click “Transfers”, then  the “Pay other People” tab
  • In the "Send Money" section, select the person to whom you want to send money.
  • If you've sent money through Popmoney to this person before, he/she will be in your contact list and the email address or mobile number will be automatically entered for you.
  • If you are sending money to a person for the first time through Popmoney, enter his/her information. (This person will be in your contact list the next time you send him/her money.)
  • Money sent to a person using their bank routing and account number number will be directly deposited into their account.
  • Enter the amount you want to send ($5.00 minimum).
  • Include a message (optional), such as "Thanks for dinner." You can customize your email by selecting one of our unique designs for only $0.99.
  • Click "Continue".
  • Review the payment details and click "Send Payment".
  • The recipient will receive notification (either email or text message) of your payment.

If payment is still in a “pending” status, you can cancel it within the “Activity” tab.  Or, contact our Customer Banking Center for assistance.

Q: How much money can I send?

A: Each customer is allowed specific spending limits. The maximum amount you can send can be accessed by clicking the (?) button next to the "Amount" field. This amount is reduced each time you send a payment and then reset on a rolling 7-day period. For example, if your maximum amount is $1,000 and you send $100 to someone, your maximum amount changes to $900. When your maximum amount reaches $0, you cannot send money until it resets.

Q: What happens to unclaimed money?

A: If the money goes unclaimed, an alert will be sent to you to let you know that the payment has expired. Senders will also receive a “Payment Expiration” message if the recipient’s account is closed and Popmoney can’t process the payment.

Q: Is there support for all wireless carriers?

A: Not all mobile carriers support receiving Popmoney text messages. If you send money to a person with a mobile number at an unsupported carrier, he/she will not receive a notification of the payment. Recipients registered with Popmoney, however, still receive the money. If the recipient's wireless carrier is not listed, you can send money to an email address instead.

Please note that payees must have internet access to collect funds.
