Pay A Friend Features
To use the service, you must have a:
- ASB Debit Card linked to a personal or business checking account with American Savings Bank.
- Valid mobile phone number for the receiver/recipient.
- ASB Online Banking Online and/or Mobile Banking access.
The Pay a Friend Service is not available to Commercial Business Accounts.
The recipient will receive a notification via email or text message (whichever was specified by the sender) with the payment information and a link to collect their funds. The recipient enters his/her debit card or bank account information to get the money. Only financial institutions participating in the Payzur network may accept Pay a Friend funds. Recipients can check with their financial institution to see if they are participating. The recipient has up to 10 days to retrieve the funds or the money will be credited back to your account. No registration or login is required to receive the funds.
The funds will be debited from your account as soon as the recipient collects the funds. The recipient has 10 days to collect the money. If the money is not collected in 10 days, you will be notified and the funds will be credited back to your account within 1-2 business days.
If the recipient chooses to collect the funds via a debit card, the funds are available to them immediately! If they choose to collect using a checking or savings account, the money will be credited to their account within 3-5 business days.
Pay a Friend payments are processed as PIN-based debit card transactions, so you should use the PIN for your Debit Card tied to your American Savings Bank checking account. Please note that the PIN pad will scramble after you enter each digit of your PIN number for your protection and as an added layer of security.
On both your statement and on your account history, the Pay a Friend transaction will appear as: American S MNYTRF XXXXXXXXXXXX. There will be a unique code for each money transfer.
In order to use your debit card, your bank must be a participating institution. If recipient is unable to use their debit card, then the recipient will be asked to enter their bank's routing number and account number (shown at the bottom of your checks) to receive the money. This type of transaction will take 3-5 business days to process.
Personal accounts may send up to $2,999 per transaction, $5,000 per day, $5,000 per week, and $10,000 per month or the available balance in your checking account, whichever is less. The maximum number of transactions are 5 per day and 10 per week.
Yes! There is no need to share your account number with anyone. Money is sent securely using just a phone number or email address. Payments are processed and protected in the same manner as PIN-based point of sale debit card transactions.
To cancel a transaction that has not been accepted by the recipient, please call us at 808-627-6668 or toll-free 800-272-2566. You can also go to the “Message” tab and send us the Tracking ID and amount of the transaction. We will send you a confirmation with the status of your request.
