All About Online Banking

Posted by Alfredo On October - 8 - 2012 0 Comment

One of the major problems you might associate with banks is the hassle of actually visiting the bank. For a person who really has little time and a full-time job, it can be hard to make it to a branch location during the week. The last thing you probably want to do is go to the bank on a Saturday morning.

For people who are having trouble visiting banks, the best possible provision is the online banking facility. With online banking, you can certainly perform all of your bank related operations over the internet, whenever and from wherever you want. Online banking can be accessed on desktops, laptops, cell phones, and tablets.

You can do these things:

  • Electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP)
  • Transfer of funds (between one account of yourself with one of your other account – for example between your checking and regular savings account, or you can transfer funds between your account and another person’s account)
  • Savings & investments sale or purchase
  • Applications of loans and transactions (for example repayments)
  • Acquiring bank statements
  • Fast approval of transactions
  • Wire transfer and support of personal financial management (for example importing your personal financial data into popular application software like Microsoft Money, Quicken or Turbo Tax).
  • Some banks even allow users to make deposits by taking pictures of checks with a cell phone or scanning them in.

You will always get your bank statement right at your fingertips. If you do not know much about bank statements, then in simpler words, it is the statement of account providing a summary of all financial transactions that occurred in a given phase of time. The account might be your deposit account, your credit card related transactions, or some other type presented by your preferred financial institution. You can help banks save paper by signing up for electronic statements.

Hopefully this has provided you a new opportunity to look beyond the conventional mode of banking.
