Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily split the bill at dinner, pay your babysitter, or transfer money to a friend without having to reach for cash or write a check?

Now you can!

It’s now possible with North Shore Trust and Savings’ latest offering in its suite of products providing convenience through technology.

The service is called Popmoney® and it’s built right into North Shore Trust’s iBanking. Popmoney is an electronic payment service that allows users to send or receive money using an email address or a mobile phone number. The money is transferred from your bank account and deposited directly into theirs, or you can request that they transfer money directly to you.


  • Have roommates and need to pay the landlord? They can send you their portion of the rent via Popmoney!
  • Instead of mailing a check to your nephew for his birthday…send an eGreeting with the monetary gift directly to his mobile phone.
  • Popmoney is the ideal way to send money to your college student – it’s fast and secure!
  • Owe your friend money from the concert you enjoyed last night? Use your mobile phone to pay her back.

Popmoney eliminates the hassles of checks and cash by allowing you to send and receive money as easily as you send and receive email and text messages. Best of all, you don’t need a separate account…you can use your current North Shore Trust checking or savings account.

Popmoney was created with your financial security in mind. It is built on the industry’s leading online money movement platform and utilizes superior risk management and fraud protection services. The Popmoney platform is used by thousands of financial institutions, including many of the nation’s top banks. This means the person to whom you are sending money does not need to be a North Shore Trust and Savings customer. Chances are their bank is also a member of the Popmoney network. Even if their bank is not, linking any account is easily done though www.popmoney.com.
