No. You can send money to almost anyone. If the person is not already registered with People Pay, they will receive an e-mail or text message with instructions on how to claim their money. The recipient will be directed to use a secure website to claim their money. They can select how they wish to receive their money, either directly to their account or by having a check mailed to them, and must provide their required information to complete the transfer.

  1. Send to email or mobile number. Allow the contact to decide how they want to claim the money. We will send an email or text message to notify your contact with the instructions explaining how to claim the money.
  2. Deposit to bank account. If you know the contact’s account number and the routing and transit number of the financial institution where the account resides, you can deposit money directly into that account.
  3. Mail a check. If you have the contact's mailing address, you can send them a check.

This will depend on the payment method selected. A payment to be deposited to a bank account can take up to 3 business days from when it has been sent or claimed. A payment by check could take several days after a check is issued for it to be received by the recipient through the U.S. mail.

Your ability to cancel a payment will depend on the method you use to send the funds. If you send a payment using an email address or mobile number, you may cancel the payment any time before the recipient has claimed the payment. Once it has been claimed, you may not cancel the payment. If you send a payment using the deposit to bank account or mail a check option, you may not cancel the payment.

If the payment was sent using your email address or mobile number, you will receive an email or text message with instructions on how to claim the money. If the payment is sent to your registered People Pay email address or mobile number, you will receive notification, and be directed to claim the payment through eBanking or the Mobile Banking App. If the sender sends a payment using your bank account information, it will be deposited directly to your account. If the sender uses your address to mail you a check, you will receive a check via the U.S. mail.
