5 Reasons We Love Using "People Pay" on the NWB Mobile App

November 21, 2017

Thanks to the new "People Pay" feature on the NWB Mobile App, it’s now easier than ever to send and receive money with friends and family. All you need is your smartphone!

Here are five reasons, in particular, that we love using People Pay:


Whether you need to pay the babysitter or get paid for babysitting, People Pay makes easy work of sending and receiving money. It makes light — and secure — work of sending money how and when you need. Parents can send money to college students, friends can pay each other back for dinner, and so on.

2. People Pay is backed by your bank.

People Pay isn’t like Venmo, or other mobile payment systems, which have had their fair share of complications when it comes to scammers and fraud. If the worst happens, who will be there to help you on the other end of the line? Backed by Northwestern Bank, People Pay is an extension of the customer service and quality you know and expect from your community bank.

3. It’s not just for SNB customers.

While you'll need to open an NWB account and register for online banking to use People Pay, you don’t have to be an NWB customer to receive funds (although it’s just one more wonderful reason for you to bank with us). Non-NWB customers will be notified via an email or a text message telling them to claim their money via a secure link and private claim code. It’s that easy!

4. check it off, instead

Not everyone wants or needs an electronic transfer of funds into their account, and that’s okay. Through People Pay, you can also direct NWB to send a printed check — for free — to the address they provide.

5. people pay keeps you connected.

People Pay is just another method of keeping you in tune with your bank account. We've found that it's keeping customers more active on mobile banking — which means you'll be connected to your accounts, your account balances, and your spending and saving habits.

Have you downloaded the new NWB Mobile App yet? It's the most convenient way to check your account balances, transfer funds, pay bills and now — to pay anyone from anywhere using "People Pay"!
