External Transfers vs. Popmoney

When you need to move money or pay people, you can send, receive, and set up recurring payments all within Online Banking or the Columbia CU app using two methods:

  1. External Transfers – Set up one-time and recurring transfers between your Columbia CU account and accounts you hold elsewhere.

  2. Popmoney – Send, request, and receive money electronically with the recipient’s email address or phone number.
