Should I Try Online Banking?

Online banking may still be a new concept for a lot of you out there. We've all heard rumors about identity theft and not giving out our personal information on the internet. When it all comes down to it, online banking is perfectly safe and nothing less than the wave of the future. Online banking is the new ATM. In the past, we thought being able to make our deposits outside of the bank was neat, now we never have to wait in line at the bank again!

Online banking is completely safe and completely useful. There is no reason why you shouldn't at least give it a go. If you don't like it, you can always wait endlessly at the bank to transfer funds between your accounts. Otherwise, you should be completely satisfied with the ease it really does provide.

What can it do for me?

With online banking, you can view and transfer funds between your accounts without the hassle of driving all the way to the bank. Not only does your personal bank probably offer online banking, there are lots of “virtual banks” online with no physical branches anywhere! The best part about online banking is the ability to pay bills or do other transactions from the comfort of your computer chair. If you set up your deposits on direct deposit, you can entirely avoid ever going to a bank again!

Is bill pay safe too?

Many financial institutions now offer online banking with bill pay in addition to their normal services. It is completely safe because your information is transferred over a secure connection. Online banking with bill pay is set up much like it would be if you were to write your own check, but the checkbook is automatically balanced for you. You can set up what is in essence an address book which contains all of your account information including payment address and account number. You can even send checks off to people without a bill as long as you include some sort of identifying information on the check.
