What if my Digital Banking account becomes “Locked”? What should I do?

1. Under “Settings”, click on “Security Preferences”
2. Click on the “Change Password” option
3. Enter your current password and the new password as noted and click on “Change Password”

How can I create or modify my Digital Banking alerts?
A. To manage your “Alerts”, you will click on “Settings”, then “Manage Alerts”. Within “Manage Alerts”, you have the ability to set up a brand new alert or modify an existing alert.
Can I change the order in which I can view my accounts?
A. Yes. Click on “Account Preferences”. You can arrange the order of your accounts according to the accounts you’d like to see more often or towards the top vs. those that you’d want towards the bottom.
In addition, on this page you can also edit the name of your accounts to give a specific nickname by clicking in the box of the desired account, then clicking on the pencil icon. See additional instructions below.
1. Account Order - By clicking the arrow up or down, you will move the account to the desired location until it’s where you want it. This may include multiple clicks in one direction or the other, depending on how many accounts you have.
2. To give an account a nickname, you will click in the desired account box to expand the box to show other options. You will then click on the pencil icon, and a box will appear with the current name of the account. You’ll erase that name and enter the new name of the account. When done, click the checkmark to finish.
How do I set up a recurring transfer in digital banking?
A. Go to “Transactions”, “Transfer Funds”, there you have the ability to initiate a one-time or recurring transfer. Funds transfers can be made to either an Ascentra account or to an external account, once that account has been set up and verified. Under the “Transfer Funds” option, after selecting the “From” and “To” options, the “Frequency” options will be there for setting up a recurring transfer at various times throughout the month. After that, select a start date to indicate how long you would like the transfers to happen.
Can I set up an external account to transfer money to/from my Ascentra account?
A. Yes. You can set up an external account by clicking on “Services”, “Add External Account” (an account you have at another financial institution) to be linked for electronic transfers. This feature is only available to consumer accounts. In order to add your external account you will need to have the following information:
• Institution’s Routing and Transit number
• Your Account number (max length is 17 digits)
• Account type - checking or savings
Two "micro" deposits will be generated and sent to your external account (typically within 5 business days). Micro deposits are random deposits in amounts less than $1. Once you have received these two micro deposits in your external account, make note of both amounts as you will need them later to verify your account. Follow the steps on the “Add An External Account” page to set this up. Micro deposits will expire 14 days from the time sent.
When I go into “Activity Center”, why do I only see certain transactions?
A. The transactions shown in the Activity Center specifically are only transactions that have taken place and processed within Digital Banking. To see a full list of your transactions, including debit card transactions, deposits, payments, etc., please refer to that specific account’s detailed transaction history.
How do I cancel a transaction which I’ve created?
A. Go to “Transaction”, “Activity Center” option and locate the transaction that needs to be cancelled. Click the dots in the upper right corner of the transaction you would like to cancel and find the “Cancel” option. A confirmation box will come up to “Confirm” your cancellation. If a transaction has already been processed, the cancel option will not appear.
Can I pay other people using Digital Banking?
A. Yes. You can send money to other people using PayUp, a feature in the “Transactions” section. This is a free service to our debit card holders.
Can I deposit checks through the mobile app?
A. Yes. You can deposit checks through the iPhone, Android and iPad app. You will have to endorse the check and write “For Mobile Deposit at Ascentra CU Only” below your signature, even if your check includes a box stating a similar message.
Does Ascentra provide support for third party solutions (apps and websites) linked to Digital Banking?
A: Ascentra provides limited support for third party solutions directly related to our digital banking service (e.g. Quicken & QuickBooks). If Ascentra cannot resolve, a case will be opened with the solution provider in an attempt to resolve the issue with you. Ascentra does not provide support for indirect third party solutions (e.g. FreshBooks, Acorn, Nerd Wallet, etc.). If you elect to use an indirect third party solution you will need to contact them directly for assistance.
What information do I need to send money to someone else?
A: To send money to someone else, all you need is the recipient’s email address or their mobile number. You will need to know your PIN when processing a transfer with PayUp. Recipients do not have to members of Ascentra.
Can I use a debit card from a different institution for PayUp?
A: No. You can only use an Ascentra Debit Card for the PayUp service within Digital Banking.
Are there any limits with PayUp?
A: Yes. Transaction limits are per login, so primary and joint digital banking users have separate limits. The various limits are as follows:
- Maximum of 10 transactions per day
- $500 maximum single transaction amount
- $500 maximum daily transaction limit (based on a rolling 24 hour period)
- $3,500 maximum weekly transaction limit
- $5,000 maximum monthly transaction limit
Can I schedule future or recurring payments with PayUp?
A: No. You are only able to do one-time, real-time payments.
How will the recipient know when they have received the money?
A: The recipient will receive a notification and a link to a website to collect their funds. Email notifications come from Payzur@Acculynk.com. The recipient will need to enter their name and debit card details for immediate transfer of funds to their account. If they do not have a debit card, an alternative will be to enter their account information. The money will then be received in 1-3 business days depending on their financial institution. The recipient has 10 days to claim their funds. If the funds are not claimed, a credit will be sent back to the sender.
What if the recipient accidentally deleted the notification link to retrieve the funds?
A: You will have to wait one hour from the original time sent to resend the same payment.
