5 Benefits of Online/Mobile Banking

1. Increase Security & Control

With mobile and online banking, you’re in control. Through features like event alerts and our mobile app, MobiMoney, you can monitor your accounts anytime, anywhere, in REAL TIME. This doesn’t mean you HAVE to check your account every 30 minutes though. Instead, you can set up alerts to notify you of things like:

  • When a deposit is made to your account
  • When your balance gets low
  • When a debit is made to your account
  • When transactions of a specified amount occur

You can also turn your debit card on and off with the touch of a button from your phone. Taking advantage of these features not only provides the convenience of control, these features also decrease your risk of fraud.

2. Save the Trees

Did you know there are environmental benefits to online/mobile banking? By taking advantage of features like online statements and online bill pay, you can greatly reduce your paper usage.

3. Eliminate Late Fees

Speaking of online bill pay… Never missing a payment means no more late charges! The ability to pay your bills online from anywhere means you can get those payments in on time no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Even better, set up automatic bill pay!

4. Reduce Carbon Emissions

Did you know you can do things like deposit checks, make payments, check your credit score, view your accounts, re-order checks, and more from the convenience of your home (or anywhere with internet)? Saving a trip to the bank not only saves you time, it also reduces your fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

5. Bank Anytime, Anywhere

With online banking, you have access to a 24/7, mobile branch of the bank. Essentially, you can take PVNB with you on vacation, to college, on business trips… anywhere, anytime. Say “YES” to that last-minute road trip without having to worry about getting your finances in order. Pay your bills in bed, check your balance at the beach, send someone money on a mountain – live your life!
