Members have asked for a better and secured way to send payments which is why Popmoney is being replaced with new Stanford FCU Pay a Friend. This exciting service allows members with a Stanford FCU Debit Card to pay anyone in a more convenient and secured way.
Popmoney contacts are no longer available. The new service, Stanford FCU Pay a Friend, allows mobile app users to import their contacts from their mobile phone. Stanford Pay a Friend also remembers the names of who you previously sent payments to. Simply start typing the information of a person whom you’ve previously sent money, select them from the pop-up list & input the amount of money you wish to send. It’s that easy.
Pay a Friend does not have the option to send a recurring payment. You can however repeat a transaction after the first initial payment has been sent. Repeating a transaction allows you to take less steps for future payments when the amount and person are the same. Another option is to use our Bill Pay to pay a person and make a recurring payment. Please keep in mind this process is slower and a physical check will be mailed to the recipient.
Your recurring payments will not transfer to Stanford Pay a Friend. However, setting up new payments is a snap. Simply login to Stanford FCU Online Banking> Payments & Transfers button> Stanford Pay A Friend menu option. Then follow the prompts.
