SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 12, 2011) - Bank of Internet USA (NASDAQ: BOFI) announced today it has expanded its product offerings with the launch of a new innovative service: Popmoney, a person-to-person payment service that eliminates the hassles of checks and cash.

Popmoney allows customers to electronically send money to other people and it is a convenient alternative to sending cash or checks to friends and family or for paying service providers. With Bank of Internet USA's new Popmoney, sending and receiving money in the USA is as easy as emailing and texting.

With Popmoney you can easily:

  • Send money to virtually anyone

Popmoney makes it simple to send money to anyone using either their email address or mobile number, without having to know their bank account information. Receiving money through Popmoney is just as easy; when someone sends you money via Popmoney, you will simply receive an email or text message.

"We are focused on finding the best ways to help our customers use their money, and this person-to-person payment service provides a convenient way to do so -- people can receive their money straight into their online bank account, saving them a trip to the bank," said Greg Garrabrants, President and CEO of Bank of Internet USA.
