Members Federal Credit Union in Aurora calls Fiserv Inc.'s ZashPay "a new and exciting offering that rivals the quickness and convenience of PayPal."
The $72 million credit union said it will charge 50 cents per transfer, which require only a mobile number or e-mail address of the recipient. Funds will then be sent the same or next day, the credit union said.
"We're excited to offer ZashPay to our members as a quick and convenient way to send money to children away at college, friends, coaches, whomever, all at a low cost," said Jeff Holler, president of Members FCU. "It's another example of how technology is enhancing our membership's daily lives."
