Additional new capabilities include ability to request money and
send personalized greetings
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 28, 2014--
U.S. Bank, lead bank of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) is the first large bank
in the country to offer real-time person-to-person payments online and
through mobile devices using the Popmoney® Instant
Payments feature, a product of Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV).
The real time person-to-person (P2P) payment feature expands U.S. Bank’s
existing P2P payment service, which it has offered for over a year. Now,

eliminate the awkwardness and hassle of collecting money from another

Bank customers can choose from next day or standard P2P payments.

president of money movement at U.S. Bank. “It’s not just about the ‘wow’
