Memo for Transfers

An optional memo can be added to any active payment or transfer. This can be used to enter specific information about the transfer that you may want to record (i.e. invoice number, work order number, etc.) or even act as a message to the recipient.  

Example: add a “Happy Birthday” message to a member-to-member funds transfer, or maybe get organized for next year’s taxes by labeling and creating categories for your charitable donations or business-expense deductions. 

This information will be stored and displayed for reference purposes in the Scheduled and History tab (Activity list on mobile) under the transfer detail. 

Follow these steps to add a Memo to your completed transactions:

1) From the Digital Banking Accounts screen, select the account you’d like to work with (ie: Coast Checking / Prime Share) Your recent transactions will display.

2) Select a transaction from the list.

3) Locate the “Memo” field and select the pencil icon to edit/add your text. You may enter a maximum of 40 characters.

Follow these steps to add Categories to your transactions:

Digital Banking will automatically assign a category for your transactions, but if you want to be more specific, you can create and apply your own custom ones. As long as there is not a change to the Merchant’s information, Digital Banking will recognize your future transactions and categorize it accordingly.
