Banco Popular (Nasdaq:BPOP) is extending its reach as one of the premier community banks in the U.S. by adding access to thousands of surcharge-free ATMs through Allpoint® Network, the largest surcharge-free ATM network. Through the partnership Banco Popular is now connected to communities across America, providing its customers with surcharge-free access to 33,000 ATMs in leading national and local merchant locations.
In addition, Banco Popular has just re-launched its brand new online banking platform through its fully integrated web site www.mypopularbanking.com. The new site is faster, easier to use and allows customers to open an account online. The new platform also allows customers to transfer funds between internal and external accounts, pay their bills more quickly and view both their transaction history and statements online.
"Consumer and business banking customers today insist on access, convenience, and choice," said Manuel Chinea, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking Operations. "We are focused on providing convenience and ease of banking to our customers. We believe our expanded network of ATMs and newly expanded online banking platform does just that. Now, people have many more reasons to make Banco Popular their community bank."
