Person to Person Payments

Sending checks or cash? Wire transfers? That’s so yesterday. Now paying someone is as simple as having just their email address.

Perfect for paying just about anything — money gifts, paying the babysitter, paying back a relative who spotted you $20, settling invoices, you name it!

Here’s How It Works
