Member Business Services

Ideal for small businesses

At Oregon State Credit Union, we’re big enough to provide our member businesses with a full suite of business accounts, loans and services yet small enough to understand the challenges small business owners face each day.

If you’re a business owner, you’ll want to take a look at our checking, savings and credit card options. Setting up ACH will help you process payroll quickly and efficiently. Will you be accepting credit and debit card payments from your customers? Then you’ll need to explore merchant card services. Take a look at our options and then give us a call at 800-732-0173 or come into any of our branches. We’ll work with you to put together a set of financial tools just right for your business.

Successful business owners prepare for the future. If you’re thinking about expanding your business, offering employee benefits, or retiring, we can help. Just call the Business Services Department at 800-732-0173 and make an appointment to discuss your plans.

  • Can finance a broad spectrum of equipment, including office furniture and computer software.
