Online Banking Keeps Getting Better!

We're excited to announce that we now offer Mobile Banking and eStatements to all Online Banking customers for free!

A few of our other features:

Easy Navigation

View your accounts and recent transactions and make quick transfers from the Online Banking home screen. Dropdown menus and a search feature allow you to find what you’re looking for easily.

Payments

Out of stamps or checks? Bad weather? Relax. We’ve got it covered. First Merchants Online Banking includes FREE Bill Pay, so you can manage all your payments in one place. Online Bill Pay saves time and money, allowing you to pay all your bills with the click of a mouse. Pay all your bills from one screen and get a complete history of every bill you pay. You can even have your bills paid while you’re on vacation using Bill Pay scheduling.
Easy-to-set-up templates make recurring payments a breeze.
You can even schedule overnight payments using our Expedited Bill Payment option. This service supports payments to both businesses and individuals who do not accept electronic payments. Payment instructions received by 2:00 p.m. will be processed for delivery the next business day. Fees apply.
And, if you need it, our Online Banking service includes the ability to request a stop payment.

Transfers

Easily create transfers between internal accounts (6:45 p.m. EST cutoff). You can even link external accounts and use our FREE external transfer feature (3:00 p.m. EST cutoff). Choose a one-time transfer or set up a recurring transfer.
You can make your loan payment using our Online Banking system, too, and you can pay down the principal on your loan faster, with our principal-only payment option.

Works with Quicken

Our Online Banking service includes FREE downloads to Quicken for your convenience.

We offer eStatements to all Online Banking customers for free! You’ll receive statements faster than postal mail, and we’ll send you an email when a new statement is available in your online archive.

Streamlined, Secure Sign In
