Debit Card Payments Go Contact-Free
Northrim has introduced new technology that frees customers from having to swipe or slide debit cards into payment terminals for purchases. All new and reissued debit cards from Northrim will now feature easy-to-use contactless technology.
CONTACTLESS CARDS EXPLAINED
Unlike magnetic stripe (swipe) or EMV (dip) cards, contactless cards let customers tap or hover their card above a compatible card reader at merchants around the globe. A small Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip transmits payment information to the terminal directly. These transactions are typically much faster than using a chip reader, and are more convenient for smaller purchases, such as coffee or cab fare.
To use a contactless card, look for the contactless logo on the point of sale terminal and hold the card close to the contactless reader for a few seconds. If the merchant does not accept contactless payments, the customer can always dip (insert the chip) or swipe (use the magetic stripe) on their card as usual.
HOW TO USE A CONTACTLESS CARD
PINS AND SIGNATURES
The requirement to use a PIN or signature depends on the merchant. Many merchants opt to waive the signature or PIN requirement for smaller transactions, typically transactions below $50. If prompted for a signature or a PIN, customers can simply enter it and continue with the transaction.
IS CONTACTLESS OPTIONAL?
No. Moving forward, all Northrim debit cards will be issued with contactless functionality.
Card issuers take security seriously, and this concern is no different with contactless cards. There are various security measures that help prevent the unauthorized access or theft of card information. That said, no security system is bulletproof, but all cards are protected by Mastercard’s Zero Liability Protection.
Make Deposits to Multiple Accounts with Split Deposit
Northrim's new split deposit feature for Remote Deposit Capture lets you channel deposits to multiple accounts in one transaction. Deposit amounts can be split by percentage or set amounts across your accounts. See the graphic for an example. Please contact us at 907-562-0062 or 800-478-2265 for more details or questions.
Discover the Power of Purchasing Cards
Northrim is now offering purchase cards, or P-Cards, to our business customers. This product is similar to a credit card issued to a business, but purchasing cards report more purchase details and provide greater flexibility. P-Cards allow a business administrator to open and close employee cards, add cardholders, manage card limits and control purchases based on specific criteria. A great benefit of P-Cards is dynamic reporting which makes managing expenses easy for businesses — all while earning rebates based on spending. Added options include streamlined authorization schedules for expense approvals and general ledger integration.
Please contact us at 907-562-0062 or 800-478-2265 for more details or questions.
The creditor and issuer of credit cards is Card Assets, pursuant to a license from Mastercard International Incorporated. Mastercard is a registered trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated. Credit cards are subject to Card Assets’ credit approval.
Payments & Transfers Options Expand Online Banking Features
Business customers have new options to make customized payments and transfer funds to and from other financial institutions in Business Online Banking.
Northrim's customized payment option lets business customers use Online Banking to send ACH payments or direct deposits to vendors, employees and others. This feature allows a handful of electronic payments to be made at a lower recurring price point than full ACH origination options.
New Transfer options let customers conveniently move funds to and from other financial institutions. The screen shot below shows how easy it is to make an external transfer.
