General Pay It Now questions

Q: What is person to person (P2P) and account to account (A2A)?

  • A: P2P (Person to Person) is when you pay another person directly using their email or mobile phone number. A2A (Account to Account) allows you to transfer money to and from an Oregon State Credit Union account and an account at another financial institution.

Q: Can any account be used as a transfer source?

  • A: Saving and checking accounts work as transfer sources.

Q: What is needed to use this service?

  • A: First, make sure you're enrolled in Oregon State Credit Union online banking.

    • To initiate P2P transfers you will need to know the recipient’s name and either their mobile phone number or email address. After adding the person, you will need to create a security question to which both you and the receiver know the answer (not common knowledge). The receiver will then input account information to direct the funds and complete the process.

    • For A2A you will need the routing and account number for the other financial institution.

Q: Can you schedule a future payment?

  • A: Yes. Both P2P and A2A can be scheduled for future payments.
