Internet banking is revolutionizing the way business owners manage their accounts and, the River Bank’s staff explains how you can put this system to use.

Compatible With Your Existing Accounts

Many people new to internet banking are under the assumption that they need to open a new bank account in order to use the service. While this may be true if you’re transferring money from a different bank, it’s not typically the case. All account holders at River Bank have access to the online banking service for every one of their accounts. However, you will need to sign up for the internet banking service. This can be done through River Bank’s website or by coming into your local branch and letting a banker walk you through the process.

Internet bankingWhen you sign up for internet banking, you’ll have access to your account balance, receive notifications of fee changes, be able to set up online bill-pay options, and complete fund transfers all from the convenience of your office. Though online banking is not designed to be a replacement for a brick-and-mortar location, it can help streamline your finance management and provides you with information about your accounts when you need it.

Safety Precautions You’ll Want to Take

As with any internet application, you’ll want to take a few precautions to keep your information safe. Always log out of your account when you’re done with your online banking session. This way, anyone who uses the computer or mobile device after you will not have access to your account information. If you have other authorized individuals on the account, encourage them to create their own login for the online service. This way, you keep your information separate from theirs without sacrificing the convenience of having additional members on the account. Should you feel that your information has been compromised in any way, change your password immediately.
