Send Money (P2P) Quick Start Guide
FMFCU’s Send Money Person-to-Person (P2P) payment service, allows you to send funds to another person from within Online Banking and Mobile Banking. All you need is the person’s email address or mobile number, access to Online or Mobile Banking, and the personal identification number (PIN) for your debit card.
P2P is great for:
- Monetary gifts (birthday, anniversary, and congratulations)
- College student expenses (living costs, food, books, and supplies)
- Services (babysitting and yardwork)
Recipients do not need to enroll in P2P, nor do they need to use the same financial institution. After accepting the Terms and Conditions the first time they use the service, recipients only need to provide a name, debit card number, and card expiration date. If funds are deposited into an account that belongs to a participating network, funds are immediately available. Otherwise, the transaction is processed via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network and funds will be available in 1 to 3 days.
- Click or tap Transactions > Send Money.
Note: On the initial visit the user will need to accept the terms and conditions for the P2P service. Upon which the system will automatically register the user (name, email address, etc). The user will then be prompted to enter their debit card number, the expiration date, along with an optional nickname. This information will be encrypted and sent securely to the P2P service provider (First Data). First Data will ensure that the card is an eligible card issued by the FI and has the correct sequence of a valid card number. From here the user is ready to conduct a P2P transaction.
- On the Send Money page, enter the recipient name. As you enter characters, suggested recipients will appear if the characters match the names of any previous recipients.
Note: On a mobile device, you can tap the Contacts icon () to select a recipient from the list of contacts stored on your device.

- The transaction will be cancelled if two consecutives, unsuccessful PIN entries occur.
- When finished selecting PIN digits, click Submit PIN to complete the transaction.
After funds are sent, the recipient gets a text or email message with a link that can be used to receive the payment. When the recipient clicks or taps the link, the Receive Money page appears in a web browser, as shown in the following example:
The recipient enters a first name, last name, debit card number, and expiration date before clicking Deposit Payment to complete the transaction. The timing of the deposit depends on the receiving account. If funds are deposited into an account that belongs to a participating network, funds are immediately available. Otherwise, the recipient will be prompted to enter the details for a checking account and funds will be available in 1 to 3 days.
Note: Mobile users can opt out of P2P at any time by replying “Stop” to any P2P text message.
